Technology Isn’t the Answer to Surviving Digital Disruption | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Agile #DigitalTransformation

Technology Isn't the Answer to Surviving Digital Disruption Guest post by Charles Araujo, Principal Analyst, Intellyx There's a funny thing about digital transformation: we are simultaneously over-hyping it and understating it. On the one hand, every tech company in the world is talking about it. It doesn't matter how mundane the technology; every company is somehow relating their products to digital transformation. On the other, many people are failing to grasp the import and impact of what digital transformation really means. In far too many cases, business and IT leaders are dismissing it as nothing more than a marketing ploy. The unfortunate result is that the over-hypedness of digital transformation is obscuring its real meaning. This dichotomy is most apparent in what I call the tech company fallacy. Everywhere I turn, I hear another company executive make a procl... (more)

Six Big Topics at @CloudExpo | #BigData #IoT #DevOps #DigitalTransformation

As we enter the final week before the 19th International Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo in Santa Clara, CA, it's time for me to reflect on six big topics that will be important during the show. Hybrid Cloud This general-purpose term seems to provide a comfort zone for many enterprise IT managers. It sounds reassuring to be able to work with one of the major public-cloud providers like AWS or Microsoft Azure while still maintaining an on-site presence. But this is a complicated topic, not a simple one. The larger issue is to avoid creating new, discrete silos of information as an enterprise develops some apps on AWS, a PoC on-premises, and tries to deploy across hybrid and multiple clouds. I look forward to conversations with Cloud Expo attendees that touch on the seemingly infinite variety of hybrid cloud approaches and options available today. Containers and Microservi... (more)

Microservices Unplugged | @DevOpsSummit #IoT #DevOps #Microservices

Given my (well-known and enduring) interest in all aspects of services, I have followed Martin Fowler's writing on microservices. But I will admit I always found the original paper more confusing than insightful. And in my client work I have resisted the temptation to use a microservices pattern, for precisely the reason that it would more than likely confuse. So I was interested to see the book Building Microservices by Sam Newman published last month, particularly as Newman is part of the Thoughtworks stable, which presumably means it is authoritative. Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that micr... (more)

Microsegmentation or #Microservices | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #IoT #Docker

Microservices versus Microsegmentation Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we? "MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing. They are not. One is about the application. The other, the network. There is a relationship, but it's a voluntary one. They are two very different things and we need to straighten out the misconceptions that are rapidly becoming common. Microservices Microservices are the resulting set of services (mini applications, if you will) that arise from the process of decomposing an application into smaller pieces. If you take a monolithic applic... (more)

Monitoring Containers | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker #APM #Monitoring

The Importance of Monitoring Containers By Kevin Goldberg With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lose a lot of visibility into these containers resulting in operational blind spots and even more haystacks to find the presumptive performance issue needle. If your team is looking towards containers and microservices as an operational change in how you decide to ship your product, you can’t afford bugs or software issue... (more)
