Why Are Organizations Adopting GitOps for Continuous Deployment in 2022?

To develop infrastructure as code, a DevOps engineer will most likely produce files (such as YAML) locally and put the code in a git repository, which offers him version control for IaC and allows other team members to retrieve and participate. However, while making changes to the code, we may not have a clear protocol in place – such as pull requests, code reviews, or collaboration to discuss modifications made by other team members. It’s even difficult to figure out who did what. Even automated tests to run the codes in repositories are lacking. All of these errors, as well as others, eventually end up in the development environment.

Monitoring And Security In A Hybrid, Multicloud World

In my November 2021 article, I outlined how the digital transformation in many organizations had accelerated due to work-from-home mandates. The rapid changes seen as IT teams worked to deliver access to staff working from home drove the uptake of cloud services and SaaS applications from multiple suppliers. These changes did a lot to eliminate the concept of a well-defined and secure network perimeter.

Bridging the security gap in the software development life cycle

The timeliness of security checks during the software testing process is critical to more rapid and higher quality software development and yielding higher returns. Yet DevOps and security have historically struggled to integrate in the software development life cycle (SDLC).

International Day of Women and Girls in Science: How to support women in STEM

It’s no secret that there remains a significant gender gap in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) industries.

Women make up only 24% of those in the sector, despite progress in recent years. As Dr Shirley Knowles, Chief Inclusion and Diversity Officer at Progress points out, not only are women put off joining the sector, they “are often paid less and don’t get the same level of recognition as their male counterparts,” once in it.

How can we accelerate diversity in the tech sector?

Whenever we think about Silicon Valley, we tend to picture groups of white men in their 30s coming up with the latest tech innovation. Films and TV series about tech reinforce this demographic, with women, Black people or those with disabilities rarely getting to feature. According to analysis of Office for National Statistics figures by the British Computer Society, women accounted for just 17% of IT specialists in the UK in 2019, and Black, Asian and minority ethnic workers 18%. Just 11% of IT specialists are reported to have a disability, and under a quarter (22%) over the age of 50.

Three Tips for Intrusion Prevention with Managed File Transfer

With some organizations furloughing their cybersecurity teams during the pandemic, it’s clear that each business places cybersecurity somewhere different on the scale of importance. Security is an intrinsic aspect of any managed file transfer (MFT) solution. And organizations which are new to this must be aware of the various security options in order to make an informed choice. At the other end of the scale, some MFT users are paranoid about security, so it’s important to know that MFT is not a one-size-fits-all feature.

Demystifying Grids For Developers and Designers

Designers and developers each have their own individual definition and use of grids, making the concept a relatively nebulous and unclear concept to all. To some, grids could mean layout and structure, while to others grids refer to interactive tables that manage data. Understanding the target audience is key here because there might not be a universally understandable direction which can lead designers to be misguided during the cross-collaboration process. When given the time, developers and designers can fully evaluate the user story and create a thoughtful user experience together through the use of grids. But first, we need to find common ground to work from.

Inspirational Women in STEM and Tech: Dr Shirley Knowles of Progress Software On The 5 Leadership Lessons She Learned From Her Experience

The 5 leadership lessons I’ve learned from my experience as a woman in STEM and further a woman in a predominantly male-dominated industry are the following: representation matters, leading with empathy, organizations need to sponsor non-profit organizations, authenticity is pivotal, and evolving the meaning behind leader positions. I hope some of these lessons will look unfamiliar to the untrained eye. It’s become easy to suggest common life lessons such as strategic development and fostering innovation — it’s time we approach leadership from a new perspective.
