Shifting security left isn’t like the scratchy sweater from your grandmother or a pink bunny suit from your Aunt Clara. It’s one of the good gifts, one of the big ones. Like a puppy or a trip to Disney World, it’s one of those the whole-family, everyone-loves-it gifts. It’s got perks for the security team, the development team, and even the organization as a whole. Gift for developers You know what’s not a good gift? When security comes bearing a long list of testing results late in the game. Revisiting months-old code to find and fix flaws is a cumbersome, time-consuming momentum-killer. But ... Read More

DevOps – A Cultural Christmas Carol

Twas the night before Christmas and not a creature was stirring. Except for Anna Scroogely, the CIO of Laggard Inc. and her downtrodden team. As usual they were working overtime trying and keep the latest release of some flaky software working across a patchwork of neglected, creaking infrastructure. As Scroogely prepared to trash another procurement request, the lights dimmed, her monitor flickered and a face came into focus. It was Clint Marley, Laggards’ former CIO. “I’m here to warn you Scroogely that tonight you’ll be visited by three spirits. Listen to what they say regarding DevOps culture or you will suffer my same fate – doomed to wear the chains of ineffectiveness and mocked by your business peers.”... Read More

Every year about this time, we gaze into crystal balls to divine the future of our industry – or at least where it’s headed over the next 365 days.

The truth is, technology isn’t as revolutionary as we often think – and commenting on incremental changes alone may not help us understand what lies ahead.

How to avoid the Grinch in the system this holiday season

For a period of a few days in November, fear and uncertainty reigned as thousands of American Airlines’ passengers waited to hear if their holiday flight would be cancelled due to a pilot scheduling snafu. No pilot, no flight. They blamed a ‘glitch in the system.’ But let’s face it, these types of defects end up draining the joy for everyone they touch—they really are a Grinch in the system. While I don’t know what the exact problem in the system was, I can surmise that there was a code change that was not sufficiently tested that was released to production. This may have been a very minor change, but one that ended up having major consequences. As companies move to deliver new features and capabilities faster and more... Read More

For years, computer scientists, science-fiction fans and the general public have been fascinated by the premise of human-machine interactions.

And recently there have been some real-world examples proving machine learning isn’t immune to social biases. For instance, Microsoft’s AI Chabot Tay was quickly taught about racism via social media.

Tech News Keywords: ,

Technological change has a way of sneaking up on us. If I had asked you twenty years ago if you’d own an electric car someday, you would probably have said no. Ten years ago, you would have cautiously said maybe. Today, you would either say your next car could be electric, or you already own one. That’s disruption. It’s when something that you never really believed would happen actually unfolds in front of your eyes. I believe that by 2030, what we now know as “IT” will be gone, or it will be virtually unrecognizable.

We are living in a world replete with all kinds of networks. Your personal network consists of new and old relationships with people like your colleagues, managers, customers, and even competitors, or with various projects, products, and software.

Finding the right person in a large, distributed organization is a challenge. The old, hierarchical org charts provide few options and quickly go out-of-date.

We all know that many of the alarms which Kip and Gary experience are false positives. Your teams are wasting precious time chasing down these alarms because they have to track down every single one of them, across multiple disconnected tools and then verify if it was real or false. While they’re doing that, there’s a good chance that they’ll miss another alarm that they should have been paying more attention to. Here’s a few real life benefits our customers have achieved by...

If you want to deliver a phenomenal user experience, put your finger down

How often have you seen your team play the “blame games” like Kip and Gary’s team are in the comic above? Your application or service performance goes down and everyone takes out their point tools to resolve the issue. The server guys says it’s not the server issue, network folks tell you everything is running smooth on their side, the data center team says the energy utilization is optimal and so on. You begin to think maybe you needed to be more rigorous with your capacity planning? As all these blame games and thoughts happen in parallel, representing a massive loss in staff productivity. Further, while all this reactive troubleshooting is occurring, the outage duration continues to grow, meaning the customer experience... Read More

DCIM: it’s the business for long-term planning

In Business by CA Technologies

Tech News Keywords: , ,

When I recently bought an industrial grade instant read thermometer for my grilling endeavors, I wasn’t just thinking about the upcoming birthday party for my husband. I was also thinking about the hundreds of family meals and dinner parties that would follow. I was thinking long-term and I was acting strategically. Data center decision-makers need to take a similar approach when deploying a DCIM solution. Yes, DCIM can deliver rapid results in the short-term, but it really turns up the heat with the realization of long-term benefits. In order to unlock these benefits, organizations need a clear strategy from the outset. All too often, DCIM is seen as a tactical IT or facilities solution, not a strategic business program....

Been there, done that, got the application economy T-shirt

In Business, Government, Science & Nature by CA Technologies

Tech News Keywords: ,

If you’re looking for an appropriate slogan to adorn the T-shirts worn by your dedicated and talented IT operations teams, it might be, “The application economy is coming – look busy!” And why not – we operate in a software-driven economy where businesses that deliver innovation the fastest will win – so better hustle, right? When you think about IT operations and managing infrastructure, being “busy” has always come with the territory. As each wave of technology arrives and implants itself within the business fabric, our teams of skilled pros operating in silos scramble to ensure the underlying infrastructure supports it. No mean task considering the eclectic mix of technologies accumulated over decades of enterpr... Read More

A trick or a treat: What’s your mainframe cybersecurity posture?

Cybersecurity, the mainframe and Halloween actually have more in common than one might think. October is National Cybersecurity Awareness month, dedicated to reminding individuals and businesses that we all need to do our part to make sure that our online lives are kept safe and secure. Indeed, the cybersecurity scope is wide, from the pre-teen chatting on their mobile device to the global business processing billions of dollars of customer transactions on their mainframe. This month also brings Halloween, also known as “Allhallowtide,” “All Hallows’ Eve,” or “All Saints’ Eve” in some countries. It’s about remembering the dead, including saints and the faithful departed. And it’s about ghosts and ghouls and oth... Read More

The true price of mainframe altruism

In Business by CA Technologies

Tech News Keywords:

Believing in the “greater good” is an altruistic view that many of us (at least the optimists amongst us) strive to achieve in our lives, whether at work or play. That’s why at CA, we believe in the greater good of the mainframe ecosystem for our customers. More specifically, I’d like to tell you about CA’s ongoing participation with IBM to collaborate on a variety of installation-related improvements on the z/OS platform. On October 4th, IBM announced z/OS platform software enhancements to help drive improvements in installation, configuration and deployment, along with functions that are intended to enable independent software vendors (ISVs) to use them.

HP ALM customers, CA is here to help you transition

Tech News Keywords: , , , , ,

As you might have already heard, last week HPE announced the “spin-merge” of its non-core software assets with Micro Focus, a software company based in the UK, in a transaction worth around $8.8 billion. The software assets included in the spin-merge include its application delivery management, big data and enterprise security. HPE has been in the news many times in the past year – from the split of HP into HP and HPE, to the HPE Services spin-merge with CSC, and now the divestment of a major portion of its software portfolio. No matter how they spin it, HPE is losing in the IT software market and have even stated that these software tools are great assets, but not part of their core strategy. This leads to a murky s...

Integrated DevOps optics: No room for vendor myopia

In Government, Security by CA Technologies

Tech News Keywords: , ,

In some instances, this willingness to subjugate potential revenue prospects and look beyond competitive conflicts takes a very long time to materialize. Unsurprisingly, this typically doesn’t benefit the technology consumer. Take for instance the IT security market. It took literally decades for vendors to agree that sharing information about widespread attacks and resulting anti-virus signatures was more useful for practitioners, and ultimately solutions providers themselves, than pursuing purely independent strategies. Last time I checked there was still plenty of room for competition in that space. Brightest names in DevOps joining forces Thankfully, in the domain of DevOps tooling and automation, it h...

Learning from Brexit: Are you prepared for unexpected change?

In Business, Education, Events, Government, Legal, Science & Nature by CA Technologies

Tech News Keywords: , , , ,

In my daughter’s final year at university, she wrote a thesis on how well prepared small and mid-sized companies were for big changes. For me, it was no surprise that she found very few of them actually had strategies that would help them cope with significant change. And I have no doubt that many larger enterprises are, to this day, similarly unprepared. Having said that, how do you prepare for the truly unexpected? It seems like very few people actually believed a majority of Brits would vote to leave the EU in the recent “Brexit” referendum. Consequently, the British government and people now appear rather uncertain about what is going to happen next. I have personally experienced this kind of unexpected change at ... Read More

It’s football season again, and I don’t want to miss a single game! Thanks to mobile streaming, multi-channel recording and interactive TV, I can catch all the action when, where and how I want. Well, that’s the theory. Every on-demand digital service relies on the performance of a complex array of network and infrastructure components. Just one break in the chain and the user experience will be disrupted and you’ll miss that amazing one-handed catch in the end zone.

Is agility the new strategy holy grail?

In Business, Emerging Technology, Government by CA Technologies

Tech News Keywords:

As a watch enthusiast, I follow with interest the ever growing number of watch “micro-brands” that are appearing, boasting high quality Swiss movements and innovative designs. It is now possible to produce watches that compete with the high-end Swiss brands at a fraction of the cost. The new manufacturers are agile and able to adapt to market feedback in near realtime, which is often difficult for existing leaders. It is obvious why it makes sense for new, purely digital market entrants to keep at the cutting edge of digital transformation – they need to drive market share. But why do organizations that have been around for decades and are already turning economic profits need to embark on a digital transformation jo... Read More

The ultimate loser in PSD2 is the consumer

In Business, Legal, Security by CA Technologies

One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results.  — Milton Friedman The Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2) is designed to create a single and efficient market for payments. It would do this by creating a more competitive playing field that offered consumers more choices for payment at lower costs while also improving security. A tall order to be sure, but after the release of the draft technical requirements one has to wonder if the intent and desire to combat fraud will come at the expense of consumers rather than benefit them.

Comedians love cheap shots. Right now, one of the easiest laughs to be had is at the expense of Web-native businesses that are perceived as being dead-in-the-water. Mention Ask Jeeves or Myspace to a tipsy audience and you’re onto a winner. Done right though, a joke on this theme can be used to satirize the hubris displayed by today’s tech giants―the digital disruptors who seem invincible in the knowledge that they are the future and they always will be. Here’s the thing: funny as it now seems, Myspace was once the future.

Simply having APIs is not enough

In Business, Events, Finance, Security by CA Technologies

Tech News Keywords: , , ,

For several years now, the conventional wisdom among both business and DevOps professionals has been that well-designed APIs are a key contributor to the delivery of successful digital projects. In fact, our study from 2015 showed that almost all “digital disrupters” – companies at the leading edge of innovation – had leveraged APIs to achieve twice the revenue growth of their mainstream counterparts. Digging deeper, the research also showed that the best predictor of success is not just having APIs, but having them in the context of a properly managed and coordinated API program. APIs accelerate innovation, which in turn leads to the great digital experiences that make consumers and shareholders take notice. ... Read More

If it feels like everything is too complicated, it’s not you. Sixty-seven percent of Generation Xers agree that life has become much too complicated. If you’re anything like me, you struggle daily just trying to figure stuff out. I’m often amazed that people with less of a technical thought process than I have can even get by. It’s not the hard stuff either. For example, last night, my wife watched me try to figure out why a TiVo season pass wasn’t recording properly. Twenty minutes.
