IBM Escalates The DevOps War With UrbanCode Acquisition | ZDNet | [Strategic] Beyond the buzzword "Cloud" | Scoop.it
Forrester’s Glenn O’Donnell sheds light on the IBM-UrbanCode deal and what it means for the future trajectory of the DevOps movement.
Hedera Technology's insight:

"The emerging software-defined data center (SDDC) vision has merit and is a logical beneficiary of DevOps principles and the associated technologies. After all, software is software, and systems software (e.g., underlying SDDC mechanisms) should be treated just like application software in its lifecycle. The primary difference is the pace and level of human intervention. System software is actually a perfect use for this level of extreme automation. Human intervention must be non-existent in SDDC and cloud platforms."

A new broom at CA Technologies signals a shift in focus, a drive to change the IT management market - | [Strategic] Beyond the buzzword "Cloud" | Scoop.it
Hedera Technology's insight:

GREAT READ ON CA STRATEGY & IT MGT MARKET / DEVOPS

Hedera Technology wonders how open to other tools will you be, at the orchestration or deployment level? and what about delivering quickly without significant IT involvement? How much is it a priority to your strategy?

 

"The acceptance by CA Technologies that the role of the CIO will move beyond the guardian of infrastructure to the broker of services shows it is evolving in line with the market. This new set of capabilities means that CA Technologies’ differentiator as the independent management vendor will be eroded as the traditional management vendors are only just beginning to operate at the cloud platform level"
