Good Enough is only Good Enough Until It Isn't [64122]
F5, June 8th 2017

Lori MacVittie blogs, "Let's talk turkey. Or creme eggs. Or boxes of candy. What do they have in common? They're all associated with holidays, of course. And, it turns out, those holidays are the number one generator of both profits and poor performance by websites.

Consider recent research from the UK, 'which involved more than 100 ecommerce decision makers' It 'revealed that more than half (58%) admitted to having faced website speed issues during last year's peak period.'

Now, we all know that performance is important, that even microseconds of delay results in millions of dollars in losses. Nuff said.

The question is, what can you do about it?..."

Delivery and Deployment Toolchains: Still Subject to the Weakest Link Axiom [63314]
F5, May 11th 2017

You can hardly turn around these days without someone mentioning their DevOps-supporting toolchain. Everyone's got one (yes, even us) and all of them are enabled by the (other) API economy. According to Wikipedia, a DevOps toolchain is: "a set or combination of tools that aid in the delivery, development, and management of applications throughout the software development lifecycle, as coordinated by an organization that uses DevOps practices."

Now, that focuses mainly on the app, but there's also the production side of the house - where software generally spends a good deal of its life (one hopes, at least). The same definition works for that, too, with the caveat that its focus (based on my perspective) is on the "provisioning, configuration, and management of network and app services throughout the app lifecycle, as coordinated by an organization that uses DevOps practices."

Why Networks Matter to App Architecture [63315]
F5, May 8th 2017

Lori MacVittie blogs, "I've been writing a lot on the topic of the sometimes tumultuous relationship between app architectures and the network. For the most part, these have focused on how changes in the app architecture impact the network and the app services used to provide speed, scale, and security. Today, however, we're going to turn that relationship around and look at how the network has a pretty significant impact on applications and, in turn, on innovation..."

ChatOps: Peopling without People [63085]
F5, May 4th 2017

There's been a shift lately in the DevOps community to focusing more on culture. That's likely because without the cultural change to a more open, collaborative cross-IT environment, many of the benefits of DevOps can't be fully realized. Closed, "need to know" sharing of information leads to those silos that stand like defensive towers encasing the tribal knowledge unique to each of the operational domains that make up what we fondly refer to as "IT."

F5 'Open' for Business at Red Hat Summit [63086]
F5, May 1st 2017

Undoubtedly no one reading right now would be surprised by the finding from Sonatype's 2017 DevSecOps Community Survey that "80% of a typical application is now assembled from open source components and frameworks." Nor would you be surprised to hear the author of the NorthBridge Future of Open Source survey claim that the most important transformations in the enterprise IT space - cloud, SDI, digitisation and DevOps - will be driven by open source."
