What DevOps is NOT

What DevOps is NOT

It seems like DevOps is absolutely everywhere now. Pretty much every company is talking about it – even if they are not ready to explore it yet.

When DevOps is mandated, the word itself becomes overused and the core message can get lost.

What a difference a Platform makes

Over the last few weeks, we have been publishing a few articles about the Live DevOps Innovation Platform, and how we built it.

Are CI tools enough for an effective Continuous Delivery pipeline?

Continuous Delivery (CD) is a software strategy that enables organisations to deliver new features to users – as fast and efficiently as possible. The core idea of CD is to create a repeatable, reliable and incrementally improving process for taking software from concept to customer. The goal of CD is to enable a constant flow of changes into production via an automated software production line. The CD pipeline is what makes it all happen.

IBM Integration Bus – A Developer’s Perspective

Having worked with some of the popular EAI tools like TIBCO BW, Vitria Businessware and SAP PI, it’s time for me now to familiarize myself with something from the IBM product catalogue as well. IIB – IBM Integration Bus. It is the next product offering from IBM in the ESB range; an extension to Websphere Message Broker and Websphere ESB.
