NoOps, short for no operations, is an IT environment where many of the functions needed to manage, optimize and secure IT services and applications are automated, abstracted and/or performed by someone other than a traditional centralized operations unit. NoOps is a loosely defined concept, with different vendors, analysts and customers using it to describe varying degrees of automation, the IT components it can be applied to, and which units are assigned the IT operations functions.

With many new product releases, an acquisition and greater overall demand, 2021 was a big year for Progress.
"All our customers are doing well," and the company attracted new customers during the year and has more in the pipeline.
In the light of that, Progress hired new talent around the region, including Australia and New Zealand, with some of them adding to the company's digital experience platform (DXP) skills.
While techxperts figure out how the RBI going to fare in the cryptocurrency game or how e-passports are going to become a reality, let us look at some prominent leaders in the industry who react to the Union Budget 2022.
Progress is a 40-year-old US-listed IT company. It acquired Chef, a global leader in DevOps and DevSecOps, for $220 million in cash, as part of an effort to advance adoption of best DevOps and DevSecOps practices in the mid-market.

The tech industry is currently in the process of a major adjustment period. Increasingly, companies are realizing (either willingly, or painfully via lawsuit) that they need to start designing their applications and websites accessibility-first.
Network monitoring is where business performance meets cybersecurity, making it a critical component of any organization’s development, security, and operations (DevSecOps) pipeline.
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.
With every sector taking a knock these past two years, many businesses have struggled to regain any momentum they had achieved before the pandemic took hold. The finance and banking sector in particular has faced unprecedented challenges, with a 1,318% year-on-year increase in ransomware attacks in the first half of 2021, causing many businesses to focus on survival rather than growth.
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.
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.
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.
The key to hands-on leading with empathy is building a foundation of trust rooted in assessing everyone's level of capabilities and committing a degree of accountability across the organization
Since the summer of this year, the UK employment sector has been hit by a new phenomenon called ‘The Great Resignation’, in which all industries are seeing staff leave, or plan to leave, their jobs in large numbers. In fact, a study from HR software company Personio of workers in the UK and Ireland showed that 38% of employees are planning to quit in the next six months to a year.
Business Reporter talks to seven human resources experts about how organizations can ease their employees back into work and avoid mass resignations as life gets back to normal.
There is no doubt that the pandemic has catapulted cyber threats at the top of organizations' business risks list.
