Smart devices require smart monitoring. That’s not a platitude. It’s an imperative. In fact, the smarter the device, the smarter you need to be about monitoring it. As headlines have shown, unmonitored, unprotected smart devices may be a disaster (or a DDoS attack) just waiting to hap...
Thanks to the DevOps movement, we now understand why software delivery chains that consist of a series of silos are bad. They complicate communication between different teams, leading to delivery delays, backtracking, and bugs. When it comes to incident management, there is another ty...

I was reading an article today that discusses managing “mission-critical” applications. I really dislike that term. It’s trite, it’s dated – even nonsensical. It suggests that applications fall into two groups – mission-critical, and…optional? marginal? unnecessary? one step away from ...

Staying current in the programming field can sometimes make you feel like the Red Queen in “Alice Through the Looking-Glass.” She said, “It takes all the running you can do to keep in the same place. If you want to get somewhere else, you must run at least twice as fast as that!” You’...
What do I think of when I’m told a company wants to adopt DevOps? The first thing that comes to mind is the size of the organization, and how far they want to take DevOps best practices. I really want to know what DevOps adoption will mean for the company. In my experience, it gets esp...
