I had the privilege of sitting down with Charlene O’Hanlon from DevOps TV along with Robert Reeves from Datical and Derek Langone from XebiaLabs to talk about what the future holds for DevOps in the enterprise and what to be on the lookout for the coming year. It was a great discussion and we talked about some trends we are seeing in our areas of expertise. Key themes pointed out were: Increase in executive involvement in DevOps — organizations want to make sure software is not only delivered on time, but that it satisfies business goals and customer expectations. Scale, …

CollabNet VersionOne has been conducting the State of Agile survey for 13 years. This is a valuable body of research and is widely cited across the industry and across the world.

Still Camped out on the Value Stream: Reflections from the DevOps Enterprise Summit, DOES18

I’ve just returned from Vegas where I attended the 2018 DevOps Enterprise Summit or DOES18. This was the third year in a row CollabNet VersionOne has supported this important conference and each year it’s one of my favorite events. I remember two years ago at DOES, in 2016, I had begun to realize the link between what we as an industry were doing in DevOps and the need to derive business value from that. To those in the industry, the connection was implicit — delivering better software faster through empathy, collaboration, etc. would of course result in business goals being …

Asking the Experts: What will DevOps Look Like in 10 Years?

DevOps has already evolved quite a bit in just the last few years, it is hard to imagine what it will look like ten years from now. Using Agile as a model, which has now been around for nearly two decades, actual adoption of the DevOps methodologies will take time. In the 2018 State of Agile Report only around half of the survey’s respondents said the majority of teams within their organization were using agile and only 25 percent said that all teams were agile. There’s still a lot of room for growth and need for continued expansion efforts such …

Asking the Experts: Has the Definition of DevOps Changed?

DevOps is really a matter of perspective, right? The idea originated with a need for two siloed teams to exchange perspective and work together. If dev teams can better understand the objectives and goals of operations team members later down the line, they will be less likely to simply throw code “over the wall,” and will work to bake in operations priorities earlier in the software development lifecycle. If operations teams understand the work and processes of their development counterparts, operations teams can improve communication and better respect the time and effort of devs. It’s a win-win because the result …

Configuring TeamForge Git Integration with Git LFS using AWS S3

Welcome to the third blog in the series on how to configure TeamForge with Gerrit replication enabled. In the first blog post, I have explained the problem of Git LFS data in context of replication and proposed a solution with AWS S3 Bucket Cross Region Replication (CRR). In the second blog post we went through the process of setting up the CRR between two regions. Now it is time to configure our Gerrit servers to make use of this setup. Next, we will discuss the migration of the existing data from the file system to the S3 bucket. Finally, we …

Asking the Experts: What’s the Best Way to Evangelize DevOps Internally?

As we gear up for our fall events, including the DevOps Enterprise Summit October 22-24, we have been talking with some of the industry’s foremost leaders in DevOps thinking. It has been exciting to see this methodology grow over the last several years and to walk customers through transforming the way their organizations develop and deliver software.
