Trends in WebRTC Development
What sort of WebRTC based applications can we expect to see over the next
year and beyond? One way to predict development trends is to see what sorts
of applications startups are building.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Arin Sime, founder of WebRTC.ventures, will
discuss the current and likely future trends in WebRTC application
development based on real requests for custom applications from real
customers, as well as other public sources of information,
Arin Sime is the founder of WebRTC.ventures, a custom design and development
firm building voice and video communication applications for telehealth,
social media, broadcasting, education, and more.

Delivering Microservices in a Hybrid Environment
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many
organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices
promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems,
but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different
projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds.
How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different
iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario:
microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B
In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Andrew Phillips, head of strategy at
XebiaLabs, discussed decoupling as the key principle for tackling this
problem, with the aim of eliminating the dependency as much as possi... (more)
Axis of Upheaval: The Denouement of DevOps

Whether you like it or not, DevOps is on track for a remarkable alliance with
security. The SEC didn't approve the merger. And your boss hasn't heard
anything about it. Yet, this unruly triumvirate will soon dominate and
deliver DevSecOps faster, cheaper, better, and on an unprecedented scale.
In his session at DevOps Summit, Frank Bunger, VP of Customer Success at
ScriptRock, discussed how this cathartic moment will propel the DevOps
movement from such stuff as dreams are made on to a practical, powerful, and
insanely valuable asset to enterprises. You may call it DevSecOps, or
SecDevOps, or maybe even DevOpsSec. Choose your own adventure.

Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to
only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data

and maintenance tools to support proactive, policy-based flow analysis for

Systems of Innovation for Ongoing Digital Transformation
Information technology (IT) advances are transforming the way we innovate in
business, thereby disrupting the old guard and their predictable status-quo.
It’s creating global market turbulence. Industries are converging, and new
opportunities and threats are emerging, like never before.
So, how are savvy chief information officers (CIOs) leading this transition?
Back in 2015, the IBM Institute for Business Value conducted a market study
that included the findings from over 1,800 CIO interviews from around the
globe. The resulting insights are worthy of revisiting today, as we consider
the digital business transformation outlook in 2017.
Introduction to the Torchbearer CIO
CIOs realize the barriers between formerly distinct industries are
collapsing, as organizations in one sector apply their expertise to others ... (more)
Accelerating DevOps with Data Virtualization

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge
headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across
companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take
days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to
quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending
them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and
bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating the organization
can lead to inconsistent masking and exposure of sensitive data.
But some organizations are adopting a new method of data management for
DevOps that is delivering transformational business outcomes in faster time
to market, lower costs, and great control.... (more)
We all know the story: a farm, a kid, a Commodore 64, and a modem maxing out
at 300 bps. A few unexpected phone bills later, and young Ian Allison is
figuring out how to game the system so he can keep using his newfound
gateway to the world of tech. According to Ian, that is where he began
building the foundation of skills for his career in computer security.
At the recent All Day DevOps conference, Ian (@iallison), now with Intuit,
talked about his history of being "that" security guy. You know, the one who
thinks developers don't care about security or deadlines, and, really, are
just plain "stupid." But, don't worry, he is enlightened now and realizes
that we all have the same goal - everyone wants to build a secure system.
Ian realized that, "security doesn't understand how developers or operations
works. Security solves for security, but that leaves everyone el... (more)
DevOps Intelligence Changes the Game
By Lisa Wells
One of my favorite parts of the novel The Phoenix Project is when Bill
Palmer, DevOps hero and VP of IT Operations for the fictional company
“Parts Unlimited” has a light bulb moment about the central importance of
IT to the business.
The moment comes as the company’s CFO lays out for Bill how he strives to
align the goals of his department with the goals of the business. It’s here
Bill starts to realize he must take a similar approach with IT. He ultimately
turns to data about his delivery process to improve IT’s effectiveness and
save his team from outsourcing—and a DevOps team is born.
Okay, so real-world situations might not be as dire as the fictional drama
at Parts Unlimited. Still, many IT teams that are transforming to DevOps
have yet to take the next step—using “DevOps Intelligence” to make
data-driven dec... (more)
I happened to be in India last November when prime minister Modi announced
the demonetization program, where 86% of the currency in the form of two
paper bills (Rs. 500 and 1000 denomination) were made defunct. People were
given time to deposit their existing currencies in the bank. Those who had
unusually high volume of such currencies were supposed to declare the legal
source or face stiff penalties such as 60-75% tax. The goal was to catch the
money hoarders and black marketers who avoid paying taxes on such undeclared
Four months later, I happened to visit India last February. Everyone
suggested I download an app called Paytm. I could transfer money from a bank
account instantly. What was convenient with Paytm was that I could use it at
gas stations, small stores, and even at roadside vendor shops. Everyone seems
to have installed the Paytm station where... (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.
