Software Factory

Software Factory Best Practices with Automation and DevOps

Software Factory Best Practices Amazon, Google, Facebook, and Netflix are just a few of the giants among the many organizations that have disrupted the application development and deployment paradigm. Despite them being from very different industries and using their applications and infrastructure for unique and abstract purposes, there are a few common themes that underlie almost all of these journeys. Many of these organizations gradually built up to their own mix of these practices, which have now become common-place. While it took most of them close to a decade to fine-tune their approaches, knowing about them can give any organization looking to make a similar leap a clear head start. A paradigm shift with devops methodology One of the most common trends seen in many organizations that are now leading… Read More »Software Factory Best Practices with Automation and DevOps

Kubernetes advance Innovation

How does AWS Kubernetes advance Innovation with STARS II government contracts?

How does AWS Kubernetes advance Innovation for Air Force Kubernetes with STARS II government contracts? Cloud services have revolutionized the way enterprises do business. Innovations have become common-place due to the capabilities offered by cloud technologies and the ease of adopting these to software development and enterprise business processes. In the 1990s and 2000s, many applications were monolithic and experienced long development cycles and quarterly or annual deployment cycles due to the difficulties of maintaining stability and post-deployment issues. Other issues included the giant tasks of managing on-premise physical servers, which could take from days to weeks to purchase and restore in case of failure. The introduction of Virtual Machines came as a welcome change which further reduced these deployment times down to the range of hours. Containers improved these… Read More »How does AWS Kubernetes advance Innovation with STARS II government contracts?

DevSecOps Center of Excellence KPI

DevSecOps Center of Excellence for Software Security with Cloud Native Computing DevOps Training and DevSecOps Best Practices

DevSecOps Center of Excellence for DevOps Training of Cloud Native Computing with Software Security The almost universal trend of switching from a traditional waterfall-based Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) to more contemporary agile approaches has made way for faster delivery of software products. DevOps training has become the default solution to this issue which is becoming increasingly relevant in current times. It brings together development and operations teams so that their processes are not isolated from each other. This leads to products being more resilient because operations teams are more adept in identifying and preparing for recurring or potential issues. Despite all this, application security issues continue to plague software, causing both financial loss and tarnished reputations. Security was brought into the mix as a solution to this condition. This… Read More »DevSecOps Center of Excellence for Software Security with Cloud Native Computing DevOps Training and DevSecOps Best Practices
