RECENT CLOUD COMPUTING QUOTE:
"The high-level vision for cloud computing is that it “flattens” the computational and storage abstractions in a way analogous to the way in which the Internet network protocols 'flatten' the network....
Cloud Computing is the programmatic provisioning of services to a user community whose requests are scaling dynamically through a transactional and asynchronous network-facing interface.
This definition reflects the state of play in terms of cloud computing systems today from an operational perspective. To begin with, clouds provide services to users in a way that can be accessed through applications or software user tools. Thus the model is immediately a service model in which users appeal to a service venue for computational service. At the same time, clouds are designed (for cost reasons) to support simultaneous user communities that fluctuate in size dynamically. The user experience is also transactional in that access is through a set of discrete requests, each of which is either accepted or refused. It is asynchronous for reasons of scale. Each request is accepted or rejected transactionally, but the result of an accepted request may be realized at a point in time (hopefully as soon as possible) after the transaction. Finally, the interface is network-facing, meaning that the service venue interacts with users via requests and responses across a network."

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

As the race for the presidency heats up, IT leaders would do well to recall the famous catchphrase from Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 campaign against George H. W. Bush: “It’s the economy, stupid.” That catchphrase is important, because IT economics are important. Especially when it comes to cloud. Application performance management (APM) for the cloud may turn out to be as much about those economics as it is about customer experience.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Software development is a moving target. You have to keep your eye on trends in the tech space that haven’t even happened yet just to stay current. Consider what’s happened with augmented reality (AR) in this year alone. If you said you were working on an AR app in 2015, you might have gotten a lot of blank stares or jokes about Google Glass. Then Pokémon GO happened. Like AR, the trends listed below have been building steam for some time, but they’ll be taking off in surprising new directions b...

The word—or rather, the contraction—is simple: DevOps. But DevOps, which refers to the increased communication and collaboration between development and IT operations, is an ever-changing, sometimes complicated term. While “dev” and “ops” used to be siloed into separate philosophies, practices, tools, and work flows, they’re merging into one. The result? A more efficient, reliable process and product.
