[session] DevOps Continuous Testing By @MHExcalibur | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Everyone talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software development and delivery pipelines. Software Defined Networks (SDNs) turns the network into a flexible configurable system of software components and connections that is powerful but presents new complexities and challenges for network software development, delivery and deployments.

DevOps and Technical Debt – Are You Paying the Piper? By @PeWhouse | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - 11 hours 52 min ago
Like me, you’re probably familiar with the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin. A cautionary tale about the consequences of reneging on debt – it sure scared the crap out of me as a kid. In enterprise IT, we also accrue debt, but of the technical kind. While the results of non-payment aren’t as severe as those suffered by the good folk of Hamelin, not ‘paying the piper’ will have dire consequences for any businesses trying to compete on an economic playing field where the rules are determined by software. DevOps of course is now being touted as a tune organizations must play if they’re to digitally transform their businesses – and for good reason. Businesses in every vertical are showing that through effective cross-functional collaboration, automation, and the adoption of agile and lean practices, high quality software can be released more rapidly – the result, a high performance IT function that’s inextricably linked to increased customer satisfaction, profitability and market share.
