High-performing enterprise Software Quality Assurance (SQA) teams validate
systems that are ready for use - getting most actively involved as components
integrate and form complete systems.
These teams catch and report on defects, making sure the customer gets the
best software possible. SQA teams have leveraged automation and
virtualization to execute more thorough testing in less time - bringing Dev
and Ops together, ensuring production readiness. Does the emergence of DevOps
mean the end of Enterprise SQA?
Does the SQA function become redundant?
In her session at DevOps Summit, Anne Hungate, Senior Director of Software
Quality at DIRECTV, advocated for the evolution of Software Quality
Engineering. She discussed how the role and impact of an SQA organization
changes with DevOps... (more)

Derive Insights from Any Data, Not Just Big Data
Big Data is amazing, it's life changing and yes it is changing how we see our
world. Big Data, however, can sometimes be too big. Organizations that are
not amassing massive amounts of information and feeding into their decision
buckets, smaller data that feeds in from customer buying patterns, buying
decisions and buying influences can be more useful when used in the right

DevOps is the hottest moving target when it comes to software development
Many people fear that this fast-paced, barrier-breaking movement will leave
information security best practices in the dust.
Analysts provide recommendations to security professionals using bingo-laden
terms like "moving security to the left" or "get a seat at the table."
What we need are real-world examples and tactics for security practitioners
to be part of DevOps.

Security professional,... (more)

Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, discussed cultural expectations
of privacy based on new research across these elements:

Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing.
Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.

Over the years, a variety of methodologies have emerged in order to overcome the challenges related to project constraints. The successful use of each methodology seems highly context-dependent. However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects.
Few research papers have focused on the way...

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder.

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly. Some say it’s the ability to control the resources apps’ use or where the apps run. Others view policy as governing the permissions and delivering security. Policy is all of that and more.

The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database.
