The need of more efficient and secure processes is growing steadily, both in present times and for the future. no kind of digitization, or even digitalization, can successfully be performed if processes are not defined. But why is the optimization of processes so critical, and why are we in need of secure processes for information security?
Nowadays, project managers are almost used to the fact that the colleagues implementing the project are not always on site, but work at home, at an external customer or even in different countries. Nevertheless, it is always a great challenge to really create an environment in which each person is perceived as part of the team, to introduce transparent communication and to establish good cooperation
For teams that are only just switching to home and digital project work, this is a major challenge that needs to be carefully monitored by the project manager.
An Interview with SUSE CEO Melissa di Donato
In this interview, Melissa explains how her style of leadership matches perfectly with the vision of open source, the role of women in tech leadership and how fierce collaboration inspires SUSE and its customers.
Microservices are the next big thing. they are understood as one of the foundations of a cloud-native solution, since they allow for faster development, technology abstraction and ease of deployment. In this article, we will look into how to write a microservice, package it and deploy it onto a Kubernetes cluster – but before doing this, we should make ourselves understand, what microservices are and in which way they differ from traditional approaches to software development.
Marco Görgmaier gives insights into the BMW Group’s cloud approach
The Cloud Report had the opportunity to talk with Marco Görgmaier, Head of DevOps Plat- form and Cloud Technologies at BMW Group, about cloud strategy, technology, implementation, and the future.
The trend away from the traditional data center towards the Hyperscale cloud Data center, which has started to gain momentum in the last decade, has also had an impact on the annual power consumption of ICT. The following article describes how the power consumption of data centers has changed since then, how it will change and how the cloud contributes to it. Furthermore, current research on energy efficiency in the cloud is presented and possible problem solutions are discussed.
Taking a look at corporate communication holistically
The continuous shift towards agile work environments confronts enterprises with new challenges. Classically formed sections lose touch with more agile units within the organization.
Implementing Cloud-native processes for cloud governance
When server instances are provisioned in the cloud, they are rarely set up manually, but automated using provisioning scripts. the provisioning scripts describe how the server should be set up. this is normal code, as we know it from normal software development, except that this code is specialized on the domain infrastructure. In software development, static code analysis (“linting”) and automated tests have established themselves as means for good maintainability of the production code. Why not apply this good practice to “Infrastructure as code” as well? this article uses the provisioning tool Ansible to describe how automated quality assurance for provisioning scripts can look like.
In a world full of security threats and in a fully automated, fully scalable environment, security has to be one of the biggest concerns for developers. If it would not be, one would not only scale their applications, but their security issues as well…
Modern organizations and companies are increasingly working in partnership with other companies. This article examines what forms of corporate partnerships or strategic alliances there are and why this form of collaboration is becoming increasingly important, especially in the cloud environment.
The cloud is the entrance ticket for the club of agile companies, as the cloud-native applications can be flexibly combined, transformed, extended and customized. However, not every company has in-house appropriate competencies. Thus, T-Systems supports the companies to develop and to operate cloud-native applications in the DevOps-model
Rook is a storage orchestrator for Kubernetes using the operator pattern.
That means that Rook can run, e.g., Ceph, EdgeFS, Yugabyte and other persistence providers in a Kubernetes cluster.
This allows applications to create, e.g., a
YBCluster object to get a YugabyteDB cluster to provide persistence for your applications in Kubernetes.
Digital transformation is generally understood as the digitization of a company’s business processes. In this context, agile transformation is the adaptation of the work methods and tools needed for running the digitized company and leveraging the potential of the digital transformation…
Enterprises are increasingly using hybrid environments, but this move can present risks and challenges, especially for organizations adopting DevOps. How can hybrid environment security fit naturally into develop- ment processes?
By enabling a long-held dream of computing as utility, Cloud Computing has become one of the major technology trends in the last decade. Due to its’ flexible and agile nature, Cloud Computing is continuously and significantly transforming a large part of the IT industry.
