Putting developers into application security

Making security easy for developers, in their preferred tools, while still generating reports for the CISO is a challenge many organizations face today, when the reality is that late-stage security approaches can’t plug vulnerabilities deep within applications. Yet putting the onus squarely on developers is a gamble, as many aren’t knowledgeable about certain kinds of … continue reading

Taming heterogeneous tooling into cohesion

Business and DevOps value streams need better alignment

Digital.ai’s 2020 State of Agile report revealed that over half of its survey respondents either had implemented or were planning to implement value stream management (VSM).

Value stream is not as easy as it seems

It is time to start rethinking your value streams.  Lance Knight, COO of ConnectALL, said the industry is making value stream management sound so much simpler than it really is, when in reality it requires teams to start thinking deeper and differently about how their work flows.  The problem is that organizations are looking at … continue reading

To fly slow or blind? A dilemma for developers

According to research recently published by Digital Enterprise Journal, organizations are losing $2,129,000 per month, on average, due to delays in application releases. This creates a tough choice for development teams, who are depending on fresh logs and metrics from those releases to guide their data-driven development processes forward. In other words, there’s what I like … continue reading

Staying in sync with your data

Data has become more important than ever as businesses look to gain new insights and bring new value to customers. The problem, however, is an overwhelming amount of data between the tens if not hundreds of SaaS services, databases, and file formats being used.  “If you can’t connect to that data, then you can’t govern … continue reading

Developers buying in to security tasks

Security has become enough of a drumbeat issue that its importance has trickled down from the CISOs through the security organization to software developers. And slowly but surely, developers are beginning to take ownership of security as a part of the development life cycle. But this heightened awareness of security hasn’t necessarily led to better … continue reading

Leveraging automated APM to accelerate CI/CD

Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery together (CI/CD) have become the goal for a majority of organizations. Meanwhile, modern technologies like Docker and Kubernetes have become widespread in production application environments. The result of these trends is that applications and their infrastructure are becoming increasingly dynamic: constantly changing to meet higher scalability requirements and fast-changing application … continue reading

Why manual performance management fails

Historically, manually setting up a monitoring system didn’t present a problem because neither the application code, nor the application infrastructure (middleware, app servers, etc.) changed very often. IT would provision a box, set its IP address, load some software, set up the monitoring and then never touch it again for years.  Nor was an application … continue reading

Drawbacks to building your own performance monitoring

Since traditional APM and monitoring tools were not designed for dynamic applications, a new set of open-source technologies emerged to help development teams manually setup their own monitoring through manual coding. Whether providing performance metrics, tracing paths of an application, or exposing other details of code, these open-source monitoring tool create their own sets of … continue reading
