23 Apr 2017 How To Eliminate Enterprise Shadow IT [62517]
CIO, April 11th 2017

Don't try to find shadow IT and govern it; instead, out-compete it with DevOps

Peter Bendor-Samuel writes in CIO, "Gartner studies have found that shadow IT is 30 to 40 percent of IT spending in large enterprises, and our research at Everest Group finds it comprises 50 percent or more. Either way, I believe these statistics are an understatement of the shadow IT ecosystem - spending on IT that doesn't go through the sanctioned enterprise IT shared service function. It's a big issue, and increasingly complicated. Historically, the increase in complexities, the need for greater security or the need to operate at enterprise-wide scale drove shadow IT out of departments and into the administration of the IT group. That's no longer the case; thanks to SaaS and cloud products/services, shadow IT can now operate securely at scale. So how can a CIO address the risks and expense of shadow IT? ..."

22 Apr 2017 Software-Based Networking Brings New Automation Perks, Challenges [62604]
SearchDataCenter, April 22nd 2017

More data center teams have moved to software-defined networks. And while the technology brings new benefits around automation, it also brings a host of implementation challenges

"The world of networking is moving rapidly to software-based systems that offer automated provisioning, improved management and security, and better support for DevOps-style application development. The automation benefits of software-based networking are critical to support the adoption of new IT and network architectures, including hybrid cloud and the internet of things..."

21 Apr 2017 DevOps: The Innovation Power Couple [62576], April 21st 2017

"If 'Dev' and 'Ops' are the power couple of tech, 'DevOps' is the holy matrimony that takes innovation from trainwreck to fast and repeatable. At most businesses, however, Dev and Ops still sleep in separate rooms and agree only on their mutual contempt.

Dev (Development) and Ops (IT Operations) usually are divorced or ready to serve the papers because their incentives clash. In Ops' opinion, Dev is an idiot - always out late drinking with friends, he comes up with wild ideas and wants to implement them immediately. Dev can't make anything work on real servers and can't write scalable, stable code..."

21 Apr 2017 DevOps Playbook: A Practical Guide For Implementing DevOps [62575]
jaxenter, April 21st 2017

If you want to 'do' DevOps the right way, you need guidance. Hence the playbook, which gives you all the information you need to understand and adopt DevOps

"Frankly speaking, there is no such thing as a set of rules and processes configured to do DevOps the right way, and the approach depends on the perceptions that different companies have towards DevOps. But wait, it gets even worse: many businesses misunderstand the concept of DevOps and so their DevOps approach goes down in flames.

Understanding the concepts of DevOps is just one part - anybody can define DevOps in a fancy way but what matters most is doing it the right way. The fact that companies are willing to adopt DevOps is great but when they go from theory to practice, things go south. That happens because many companies which adopt DevOps have more questions than answers not only about how they should put it into practice, how a successful DevOps application looks like and how they know they are doing it right..."
