Build A DevOps-Focused Enterprise [64440]
InformationWeek, June 20th 2017

"Why businesses should work to spread DevOps benefits across their entire organization. If DevOps is such a great idea, isn't it time to get other parts of the enterprise to adopt the concept?

It's already being done, says Antony Edwards, CTO of Testplant, a London-based test automation tools developer..."

"DevOps -- in particular Agile -- is fundamentally about how to productively manage a team in a highly dynamic environment, so the principles are absolutely applicable to any team," he notes...

How Containers And DevOps Transformed Duke University's IT Department [64441]
opensouce.com, June 16th 2017

It's difficult, even in retrospect, to know which came first for us: containers or a shift towards DevOps culture.

At Duke University's Office of Information Technology (OIT), we began looking at containers as a way to achieve higher density from the virtualized infrastructure used to host websites. Virtual machine (VM) sprawl had started to become a problem. We favored separating each client's website onto its own VM for both segregation and organization, but steady growth meant we were managing more servers than we could handle. As we looked for ways to lower management overhead and make better use of resources, Docker hit the news, and we began to experiment with containerization for our web applications..."

Top 5 Issues Curtailing DevOps Adoption [64442]
DevOps.com, June 19th 2017

"DevOps may seem simple and logical on the surface, yet most of the companies we talk to are struggling in one aspect or another. This is no surprise: Successful DevOps initiatives require putting together a full toolset and simultaneously creating a smart team of developers, testers and project managers who are well-versed in cloud and agile technologies.

Those tasks alone can take many months of trial and error until you are ready to start DevOps in earnest. After a period of experimentation, it's time to refine and optimize. Focus shifts to more mature issues such as creating a fully integrated tools stack, supporting a rich test data environment that doesn't undermine privacy and security, and determining the best DevOps infrastructure strategy for your company.

Regardless of your DevOps maturity, we've outlined some top issues to consider and mitigate, as your DevOps practice evolves..."

DevOps Success: A New Team Model Emerges [64272]
The Enterprisers Project, June 14th 2017

"When DevOps began, so did a shorthand description for the model: It broke down the wall between dev and ops. The teams communicated better and operated with a shared set of objectives and concerns. At the extreme, there were no longer devs and ops people, but DevOps skill sets. But now, another view of DevOps has emerged: It's about enabling ops to provide an environment for developers, then get out of the way as much as possible.

Is this model a good fit for your business needs - and do you understand what the dev and ops teams inside your organization would need to make it work? Let's take a look..."

Here's Why Release Managers Are Crucial To DevOps [64283]
ITProPortal, June 13th 2017

"DevOps is not the threat that release managers believe it to be...

Due to the accelerated pace of delivery, decentralization of control, and other disruptions that come with DevOps, many career release managers today are feeling a little off balance. Software deployment teams are operating more independently and complexity is growing exponentially (in no small part due to many small, interdependent changes being continuously deployed to production). The idea that one person or team can coordinate the planning and delivery of it all is being tested to the breaking point..."
