Building a Business-Driven Infrastructure | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Executives charged with building business-driven applications have an extremely challenging task ahead of them

Transforming IT: Building a Business-Driven Infrastructure For the Software Defined Business

By Dustin Whittle
September 17, 2014

Executives charged with building business-driven applications have an extremely challenging task ahead of them. However, the cavalry has arrived with useful tools and strategies built specifically to keep modern applications working efficiently.

We partnered with Gigaom Research to carefully grasp, and articulate, how these modern methodologies are improving the lives of IT professionals in today’s software-driven businesses. Typically, this knowledge has been so fragmented it’s been hard to find all this helpful knowledge in one cohesive area. Several blogs and research reports touch on various aspects, but what we learned from our research has been astounding.

We carefully identified these challenges as the major hurdles facing IT today:

  • Customers are digital and connected
  • Business demand is growing
  • Apps are complex, distributed, and changing rapidly
  • Traditional app performance management is growing

Clearly these have become major issues affecting companies everywhere, however more importantly, these are affecting end users and in turn company’s bottom lines. Customers have grown accustomed to expect things instantly and when apps are performing adequately, they will quickly take their business elsewhere.

Here are some key takeaways we noticed:

  • Customer experience is driving business performance
  • Proactively managing this experience requires new methods and tools
  • Modernize your infrastructure and approaches, but don’t forget the humans
  • Analytics is rapidly changing, fueled by the growth of big data

This report highlights the value of proactively managing the customer experience with new methods and tools built for modern, complex applications in order to help drive business performance.

Interested in the next-gen IT strategy and trends, check out the report.

DevOps: Disruptive but Essential in a Cloud Computing Universe

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.

The DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo--to be held November 4-6 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in the heart of Silicon Valley--will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality.

DevOps Summit content doubled from a single track in New York to two simultaneous tracks: "Dev" Developer Focus and "Ops" Operations Focus.

Join DevOps Summit Chair Andi Mann and Host Alan Shimel, November 4-6 for three days of intense DevOps discussion and focus.

We'll see you in Santa Clara! See you in November!

Video Highlights From DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo New York

While there are many ways to define DevOps, the goal of the concept is to be able to deliver IT solutions faster, leveraging several technology tools to add value for business. Cloud companies have demonstrated how they can manage massive pools of IT infrastructure, giving the developer a very flexible resource pool that they can leverage and IT is eager to do the same.

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally.

DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.
