CMS key to good customer experience: Progress exec

"Everyone [in Australia] has some sort of a web site," he observes, but today's conditions mean they need to strengthen their digital presence, and not everyone has a clear idea of how to do that.

The current environment also means that time to market is particularly important, so organisations must work more efficiently than is possible with traditional methods.

Progress Software WhatsUp Gold 2020 review: A strong choice

WhatsUp Gold is a worthy network monitoring solution with a fine track record going back to the early 1990s. Developer Ipswitch was recently acquired by Progress Software, but fear not: there’s been no dip in quality. This 2020 version brings new innovations including pulsing device icons for eye-catching alerts, facilities for uploading your own icons and improved reporting. There’s also an optional application performance add-on that can keep an eye on AWS and Azure environments, while the network traffic analysis module now provides a global map showing traffic between distributed devices.

CMS predictions: What to watch for in the year ahead

It occurs to me that there has never been a safer time to guess what the future holds. On the one hand, imagining the technologies we will utilize is relatively straightforward.

With that in mind, here are the topics and trends I expect we’ll be discussing in 2021.

The adoption of agile development practices and cloud-native architectures are changing the way organizations build and deliver applications. Applications are no longer written but assembled using a plethora of independent services and components that interact via APIs. The shift to reusable service-based architectures is simplifying development for sure but the downstream impact to supporting teams is not yet fully understood. For most organizations, the deployment of new services is happening so quickly that supporting operations and security teams have not yet had the time to see the long-term impact of these strategies nor develop best practices for managing.

Continuous Delivery Without Exception

Continuous delivery (CD) and all the other continuous things—continuous integration (CI), continuous testing, continuous deployment—have become the new mantra of DevOps. CI/CD adoption typically starts with agile development teams working on new or well-funded systems. But what about the rest of the world and all of those “other” applications, under-funded IT teams are responsible for supporting? Can or should continuous delivery be a reality for all applications?
