The Speed Index | @DevOpsSummit @Catchpoint #DevOps #WebPerf #DX #AI

Understanding Speed Index By Moiz Khan There’s a lot of buzz around the speed index metric, but what exactly is this metric and how is it calculated? Even more so, why do we need a new metric when there are so many already on the plate? This article gives you detailed answers to these questions. What is speed index? User expectations have changed drastically, webpages are expected to load faster with all elements rendering as soon as possible; user frustration increases if the visual content of the page is slow to load. There are several metrics used to measure user experience, but do these give us a clear enough picture? Not really. For example, render start indicates when the page started painting, but this could mean it loaded a white background, a random object, or just a dot on the page; the user, however, may still be looking at a blank page. The document comp... (more)

What Is Regression Testing? | @DevOpsSummit @Stackify #SDLC #AI #DevOps

What Is Regression Testing? Definition, Benefits, and Challenges of Regression Testing By Angela Stringfellow We talked a bit about the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) in a recent post, but today, we're going to dig a little deeper into one specific and crucial element in the testing phase, particularly for Agile development: regression testing. Definition of Regression Testing Regression testing refers to the process of testing a changed or updated computer program to make sure the older software features - which were previously developed and tested - still performs exactly as they did before. One way to think about software regression is to think about somebody who implements a new air conditioning system in their home only to find that while their new air conditioning system works as expected, the lights no longer work. Regression testing will often invol... (more)

[video] Many IoTs Panel | @ThingsExpo #IoT #BigData #DigitalTransformation

The World's Many IoTs: Which Are the Most Important? The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years. Panelist Bios: Chris Matthieu is the co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, a revolutionary real-time IoT platform recently acquired by Citrix.

BizDevOps | @DevOpsSummit @CollabNet #Agile #DevOps #AI #BizDevOps

I recently had a conversation with Jennifer Lent from TechTarget. She's a respected thinker in our field and covers major trends. We spoke about the emergence of BizDevOps and its implications for businesses. We tackled a number of topics. She wrote about our conversation in a recent article, "BizDevOps: Here's how to make it happen in your organization." Since our conversation, I've been thinking more about BizDevOps, its challenges, and what makes the BizDevOps pipeline flow. Peter Drucker made the prescient statement that "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." This applies to BizDevOps - changing tech is not hard, but changing culture is. You can buy the tools and put the processes into place, but getting team buy-in and creating the cultural shift to make BizDevOps run are not easy tasks. This type of change requires leadership commitment, communication, and edu... (more)

DevSecOps on Fire | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Serverless #AI #DevSecOps

DevSecOps: Catching Fire In DevOps, those who can’t keep pace are often left behind. For many people leading DevOps initiatives over the past few years, this led to a painful choice of leaving security by the wayside. Many Waterfall-native approaches to security could not keep pace with their new DevOps-native requirements and they were shunned. Gene Kim and Josh Corman first sounded the death knell for security as we knew it during their 2012 RSA presentation, Security Is Dead. Long Live DevOps: IT at Ludicrous Speed. However, as with so many things in our world, necessity is the mother of invention. Leaving security out of the DevOps toolchain was not an option for some and unimaginable for others. Fast forward four years and things have changed dramatically. We are on the cusp of a new era of security that lives at ludicrous speed. Software-defined security is c... (more)

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters. For me, I hear Andrew saying, “we’re jumping to step 5 before we’ve successfully completed steps 1-4.”
