Highly complex IT environment with multi-tier application architectures delivering apps and services, detecting and diagnosing code level performance problems can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. While it may be plain to the end user that there is a problem, understanding where that problem originates and exactly what is causing it is difficult, and time consuming. Riverbed OPNET AppInternals Xpert addresses this challenge by combining end-user experience, transaction tracing, and application component monitoring for deep end-to-end application visibility. This latest release facilitates bi-directional workflows between operations and application development to expedite problem resolution. Register to read the full report.
In the 26-criteria evaluation of continuous delivery and release automation (CDRA) providers, we identified the 15 most significant — Atlassian, CA technologies, Chef Software, Clarive, CloudBees, electric Cloud, Flexagon, Hewlett packard enterprise (Hpe), IBM, Micro Focus, Microsoft, puppet, Red Hat, VMware, and Xebialabs — and researched, analyzed, and scored them. We focused on core features, including modeling, deploying, managing, governing, and visualizing pipelines, and on each vendor’s ability to match a strategy to these features. this report helps infrastructure and operations (I&o) professionals make the right choice when looking for CDRA solutions for their development and operations (Devops) automation.
Enterprises that depend heavily on IT to deliver services to customers are constantly driven by market pressures to better develop and release new software features to meet growing demands. Facilitating the collaboration between development and IT operations and bringing application to market faster with high quality are crucial to today’s business success.
This solution brief provides insights into the DevOps movement, why it matters and how you can cross the chasm to achieve better collaboration to deliver business value rapidly. You’ll learn how CA Technologies solutions for DevOps bring your portfolio of IT technology forward in a cadence of faster, more predictable releases, letting you confirm the results of each phase of the software life cycle toward positive business outcomes.
The world of artificial intelligence (AI) has finally arrived at the doorstep of IT operations. As organizations move toward using both big data and machine learning functionality to support a variety of IT operations, processes and tasks, artificial intelligence for IT operations (AIOps) platforms have emerged as a one-stop solution.
Gartner has released a “Market Guide for AIOps Platforms” that provides findings about the AIOps industry and its latest developments.

This white paper discusses why application release and deployment automation platforms are becoming increasingly vital for IT operations in global enterprises and explores the specific requirements of such a platform in order for it to prove beneficial, and effective, and offer a substantial return on investment.
This paper is a high-level outline of how application release operations will change in response to the cloud, and it defines the key ingredients needed to help ensure that your enterprise’s release operations for production applications don’t get left behind.
Today, a range of diverse cyber-adversaries — including nation-states, cybercriminals, competitors, hacktivists, and insiders/contractors — pose financial, reputational and regulatory risk to industrial and critical infrastructure organizations.
The business impact can include costly production downtime, safety failures, and environmental release of hazardous materials, as well as theft of corporate secrets such as sensitive information about formulas and proprietary manufacturing processes.
The challenge is compounded as organizations adopt digitization initiatives and IT/OT convergence to support the business — removing any “air-gaps” that may have existed in the past.
To help security and operations teams stay ahead of the latest ICS/SCADA threats, CyberX — the industrial cybersecurity company founded by military cyber experts with nation-state experience securing critical infrastructure — has partnered with SANS to create educational content about emerging ICS threat vectors and

Once upon a time, several generations ago (in technology years), IT departments were internal departments, focused on maintaining infrastructure and services within the company. Some companies may have had external-facing services, particularly web services, but this was still generally a narrow and restricted area. IT wasn’t a revenue-generating or strategic department; it was a supporting environment viewed as a cost center.
One of the outcomes of an infrastructure-focused environment is that developers lost a sense of what their code was doing. Release cycles were long, and changes were slow. A developer would work on something and throw the code into testing or operations, and it would be released months later. Because of that long lead time, engineers lost the joy of being a developer—of creating something and seeing it work in real life.
One of the great, powerful changes with digital transformation and related cultural and technology changes like DevOps is that it reintroduce

An organization considering the adoption of deployment automation will do so to meet its own business objectives. Some organizations may be focused on clear reporting for audit, while others will be focused on getting features to market more quickly.
In today’s digital economy, the ability to bring new software applications and updates to market quickly is a key to competitive advantage. For companies in diverse industries, the goal is the same: Get high-quality software into production as fast as possible.
In this quest to accelerate release cycles, organizations must get beyond historical barriers that impede the rapid delivery of the software that keeps an enterprise competitive. In too many cases, processes tend to be inefficient, slow, and prone to failed releases. Much of the blame for the problem can be laid at the feet of organizational structures that mandate conflicting goals for the two key departments at either end of the application development chain: development/testing (dev/test) and operations.
Where dev/test teams want to push their applications and updates into production quickly, operations teams want to go more slowly in order to maintain control and keep applications and systems available.
