Anti-patterns in the Continuous Delivery (CD) Practice

This week CollabNet published a new whitepaper “Top 5 Anti-patterns in the Continuous Delivery (CD) Practice“, which discusses common issues faced by companies as they establish best Continuous Delivery (CD) practices. By observing hundreds of companies on their journey to CD, we found that even the best engineering organizations can easily get trapped in process anti-patterns by simply applying engineering best practices used in the traditional software development lifecycle. Why is this happening? It is happening because CD is still an emerging practice, and the best practices for it are still forming. It is very hard, if not impossible, to …

Exploring Task-based CI with SVN and Git

CI is frequently implemented as a dev process and not tied to the rest of the software development life cycle, resulting in a lack of real time visibility across all stakeholders at the project level.  Simply moving CI away from an isolated dev discipline is difficult, let alone scaling CI across an enterprise. One major challenge is achieving the high frequency of integrations while tying the CI process to the business needs and ensuring functional completeness, such as features that span multiple builds. Other challenges in scaling CI are governance and Ops.  CI tooling and adoption is often driven at …

Effective SCM Strategy for the Modern Enterprise

Recently CollabNet published the new whitepaper “Effective SCM Strategy for the Modern Enterprise“, which discusses issues that large companies face when working on their Software Delivery Lifecycle (SDLC) infrastructure. While understanding the requirements for repository management is a major part an enterprise IT strategy, when we talked to our customers and prospects, we noticed an interesting (and somewhat troublesome) trend in how people view SCM technology. The key problem we were seeing is that software configuration management (SCM) is typically viewed as a merely technical issue. Business stakeholders often completely rely on the technical experts – users of the SCM …

Great CrowdChat with John Furrier and Kartik Raghavan

John Furrier, founder of CrowdChat, Kartik Raghavan and I held a 1 hour session on CrowdChat earlier today. Interesting activity stream format integrated into LinkedIn, Twitter, etc. Click below on the #EnterpriseAgility link to see the conversation.

Three Prerequisites for Jumping on the DevOps Bandwagon

The recent article on www.devops.com by CollabNet’s Kartik Raghavan outlines three key prerequisites IT organizations should consider before embarking on its DevOps journey. The DevOps.com site offers a wide range of great content focused on DevOps, and how it is emerging as the new “Agile” for effective software delivery. Kartik rightfully points out that, 1) alignment around organizational commitment, 2) using automation with discipline, and 3) having the right tools and infrastructure, are key elements of success. He also points out how DevOps is not just a plug-and-play proposition, but a strategic commitment that takes fortitude and stamina to achieve.  …

Unexpected Pitfalls of CI/CD Automation: What Your PCI-DSS Guy Will Not Tell You, Part 2

As I promised in my last blog post, I would like to continue the topic of PCI-DSS 3.0, which has been in effect since January 2014. As the January 2015 deadline for meeting the 3.0 requirements rapidly approaches, many companies are working to address areas of the standard that were somewhat neglected in the 2.0 version, such as development tools and processes. It is important to continue developing a better understanding of the standard and its effect on use of development technologies in highly regulated industries. Let’s take a closer look at additional PCI-DSS 3.0 requirements. In my last blog …

Enterprise CI As-A-Service with Jenkins

Continuous Integration is rapidly gaining adoption in large and small organizations alike.  However, while successfully implemented at the team-level, most organizations are struggling to scale CI across multiple teams or enterprise-wide. Frequently implemented as a dev process and not tied to the rest of the software development life cycle.  Resulting in shadow IT, silo’d processes and information, and ultimately a lack of real time visibility across all stakeholders. And even greater implications such as risk of IP loss due to lack of corporate governance controls (e.g., RBAC, security and traceability). In this 30 minute webinar you’ll hear how to scale …
