Automated Security at the Speed of DevOps

Published By: AWS     Published Date: Oct 07, 2019
Software development has evolved from rigid waterfall methodologies to more streamlined approaches, like Agile and more recently DevOps. This evolution has taken place in large part to shorten development life cycles and meet increased business demands. Today, businesses of all sizes have built an advantage by implementing a DevOps culture and processes, which break down silos between development and operations, allowing organizations to create better software faster. As organizations implement DevOps on Amazon Web Services (AWS), they need to understand the security implications. The AWS Shared Responsibility Model makes clear that AWS secures what’s “on the cloud,” while the customer is responsible for securing their assets “in the cloud.” When AWS customers go about securing their DevOps environments, they need to do so in a way that provides robust protection without limiting developer agility.

DevOps Multi-Cloud eBook

Published By: BMC ASEAN     Published Date: Dec 18, 2018
DevOps is fast becoming a core competency required to gain competitive advantage. At its most basic level, DevOps is a team approach to drive agile modern application development and operations to deliver high quality critical digital business services. Cloud services are fundamentally changing the way applications are developed. The near ubiquitous, lowfriction access to cloud computing for developers, who can literally access powerful computing resources at the touch of a keystroke or swipe of a credit card, has fundamentally altered the software development lifecycle (SDLC).

SD- WAN in the Age of Digital Transformation

Published By: Fortinet EMEA     Published Date: Nov 26, 2018
Most organizations are in the midst of some form of digital transformation (DX), transforming how they bring products and services to the market—and ultimately deliver value to their customers. But DX initiatives also bring complexity for the network operations team. With business-critical services distributed across multiple clouds, this leads to potential performance issues, especially at branch locations. Given these realities, it is no wonder that software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) technology is rapidly going mainstream. Unfortunately, SD-WAN is an example of the paradox of DX: transformative technology can potentially move the business to the next level, but the expanded attack surface it creates can expose the organization to significant risk. That is why an SD-WAN deployment, like every other DX effort, should be accompanied by a security transformation (SX) that rethinks outdated principles, broadens protection beyond the data center, and integrates the security archit

Modern Monitoring 1: Actionable Guidance for IT Operations and DevOps Practitioners

Published By: CA Technologies EMEA     Published Date: Sep 11, 2018
Welcome to the very first edition of Modern Monitoring, a collection of articles and insights designed to help IT operations and DevOps professionals deliver more resilient, supportable and high-performance IT services. It’s perhaps a sign of the times that monitoring as a discipline is receiving much more attention within the biz tech community. And deservedly so. The new distributed application architectures being built, together with the dizzying pace of software delivery, demand new approaches in what’s traditionally been perceived as a “keeping the lights on” IT practice. Of course, there’s no better way to consider monitoring than to draw parallels with other practices in related fields. It’s why we’ve included a couple of pieces with a distinct aeronautical flavor that discuss importance of instrumentation and contextual awareness.

Successful Network Operations in a Cloud-Centric, Software-Defined World

Published By: CA Technologies EMEA     Published Date: Sep 11, 2018
The advent of cloud computing and software-defined data center architectures for modern application delivery has made networking more sensitive than ever before. Applications in the digital age require networks that can expand and contract dynamically based on consumer demand. Enterprises are implementing software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver the automation required by these new environments, but the dynamic nature of SDN makes network management and monitoring fundamentally more challenging. Network infrastructure teams need monitoring tools that can provide visibility into these new and constantly changing networks. This white paper explores the importance of SDN monitoring and examines a leading example of a solution, CA Performance Management with CA Virtual Network Assurance integration.

Data Integration déjà vu: Big Data Reinvigorates DI

Published By: SAS     Published Date: Aug 28, 2018
Data integration (DI) may be an old technology, but it is far from extinct. Today, rather than being done on a batch basis with internal data, DI has evolved to a point where it needs to be implicit in everyday business operations. Big data – of many types, and from vast sources like the Internet of Things – joins with the rapid growth of emerging technologies to extend beyond the reach of traditional data management software. To stay relevant, data integration needs to work with both indigenous and exogenous sources while operating at different latencies, from real time to streaming. This paper examines how data integration has gotten to this point, how it’s continuing to evolve and how SAS can help organizations keep their approach to DI current.

Simplifying large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) device deployments

Published By: AWS     Published Date: Jul 16, 2018
The Internet of Things (IoT) is composed of sensor-embedded devices and machines that exchange data with each other and the cloud through a secure network. Often referred to as “things” or “edge devices”, these intelligent machines connect to the internet either directly or through an IoT gateway, enabling them to send data to the cloud. Analyzing this data can reveal valuable insights about these objects and the business processes they’re part of, helping enterprises optimize their operations. Devices in IoT deployments can span nearly any industry or use case. Each one is equipped with sensors, processing power, connectivity, and software, enabling asset control and other remote interactions over the internet. Unlike traditional IT assets, these edge devices are resource-constrained (either by bandwidth, storage, or processing power) and are typically found outside of a data center, creating unique security and management considerations.

CIOs and the Future of IT

Published By: Forrester Research     Published Date: Jun 11, 2018
There’s an alarming digital divide within many companies. Marketers are developing nimble software to give customers an engaging, personalized experience, while IT departments remain focused on the legacy infrastructure. The front and back ends aren’t working together, resulting in appealing websites and apps that don’t quite deliver. We’ve arrived at this misalignment for understandable reasons. Previously, most chief information officers (CIOs) were hired to digitize and bring order to companies’ internal systems and processes. They saw websites as marketing channels and were happy to let chief marketing officers (CMOs) oversee that province of technology. They had, and still have, plenty to do just to keep internal operations running smoothly. Marketers soon got into the habit of developing not just content, but also software programs to better reach and transact with customers. But now that websites and apps are becoming cornerstones of the business, the stakes are too high to al

Magic Quadrant for Application Performance Monitoring Suites

Published By: CA Technologies EMEA     Published Date: May 25, 2018
The APM market is one of the largest subsegments of the IT operations management market, with 2016 revenue of approximately $3.7 billion and a growth rate exceeding 18% over the prior year. Given these statistics, it is no surprise that Gartner observes continuing investment. Interestingly, while Gartner has observed many new startups appearing on the radar screen, we've also seen large software organizations such as CA Technologies, IBM, Oracle and Microsoft (re)investing at the same time. Other non-APM companies are also expressing potential interest in the market — almost all of the current APM suite providers expect to see companies like Google and Amazon boost their primarily infrastructure monitoring capabilities with increased support for application visibility. Yet these (and other large) cloud companies will pose another challenge for the traditional APM players — the battle for talent acquisition. There is some concern within the APM market that highly skilled individuals may
