Enterprise interest in microservices is surging, but as with any trend in the technology industry, it is important to keep things in perspective. While microservices is a “thing” today, you cannot optimize just for this particular trend. Unless you are a startup, it is more than likely...

As a new year begins, we often take some time to reflect on the previous year and look ahead at what is to come. Suffice to say, 2016 was a momentous year for software delivery in the enterprise. DevOps adoptions matured greatly and, at conferences worldwide, industry leaders were eage...

Wrapping up 2016, we asked our resident DevOps experts to weigh in on where they see DevOps heading in 2017. The following are our predictions, covering Application Release Automation, Microservices and Containers, Continuous Testing, Secure DevOps and more.
Everybody’s talking about Microservices right now. But are you having trouble figuring out what it means for you?
In my view, DevOps is not simply a trend, nor is it a remix of existing IT structures. Whether it’s the continued proliferation of the app economy, big data platforms, mobile devices, or cybersecurity, DevOps is the intersection of all things IT. This is the real deal.

While we are now counting down the days until 2017, I was fortunate enough to reconnect with The Cloudcast team (Brian Gracely and Aaron Delp) for a rewarding chat on the topic of “Monoliths and Microservices.”
Last month, Sam Fell had the pleasure of catching up with TMC.net at their “Santa Clara Editors Day”, where he got to chat about all-things DevOps.
2017 is just around the corner! As 2016 draws to a close, we look towards the future and the emerging trends that are set to shape the world of software delivery for 2017, and beyond.
This morning, on our Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) video podcast, we discussed patterns for standardizing DevOps at large enterprises.
It’s hard to believe that DevOps Enterprise Summit San Francisco 2016 (DOES16) ended just a few short weeks ago. The event was a monumental success with more than 1,300 attendees, 86 speakers, 72 sessions and six DevOps Workshops that were new additions to this year’s schedule.
