Both digital transformation and DevPps are organizational and cultural transformations more so than they are technology changes – although in both cases, technology plays a large part in driving the organizational change necessary to achieve the business value for either effort. Just how the organizational changes and technology changes work together, however, is a difficult question. Fortunately for us, this question is an old one – 47 years old, in fact. In a 1968 paper, computer scientist Melvin Conway wrote, “Any organization that designs a system will inevitably produce a design whose structure is a copy of the organization’s communication structure.” Conway produced no evidence of this statement, and his paper was initially rejected as a result – but to this day, we refer to this statement as Conway’s Law. Law, however, is decidedly an overstatement. Observat... (more)

How T-Mobile Is Using DevOps to Slay the Competition | @DevOps #DevOps

How America's most disruptive mobile company is using DevOps to slay the competition By Yaniv Yehuda So how does an innovative company like T-Mobile look to its IT organization in to drive the agility they need to remain at the top of their game? Jason Bloomberg reports for Forbes that T-Mobile came to the realization that they can’t beat AT&T and Verizon when it comes to spending money, but they understood that they can make up for that by being more Agile and lean. So T-Mobile has begun adopting DevOps to build and deliver their software, only they don’t call it DevOps, the reas... (more)

Is @Rackspace the Nordstrom of Cloud? By @TheEbizWizard | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

It’s been only a handful of months since my fellow Forbes pundits Mike Kavis and Ben Kepes bemoaned cloud provider Rackspace’s troubles competing in the cutthroat public cloud marketplace. “Companies like Rackspace simply cannot compete,” opined Kavis in July 2014. Back in May, Kepes snarkily pointed out that “Rackspace has long been something of a bridesmaid,” as they unsuccessfully explored selling themselves to the highest bidder. Yet, just as reports of Mark Twain’s death were exaggerated – or perhaps Monty Python’s “not dead yet”? – just so with San Antonio-based Rackspace ... (more)

DevOps Revolution? By @TheEbizWizard | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Digital Revolution or DevOps Revolution? How about Agile Architecture? I’ve been writing about Agile Architecture for years – and in fact, I believe it is such a fundamental change in the way businesses deliver value that I named by 2013 book The Agile Architecture Revolution. And yet, revolution is one of those words that has long since reached buzzword status. There seem to be revolutions all around us, after all. The Digital Revolution. The DevOps Revolution. Perhaps you can think of more: the Big Data Revolution, perhaps? Or cognitive computing, or software-defined everything... (more)

Introducing 'Microservices Journal' | @CloudExpo [#Microservices #API]

SOA World Magazine Becomes Microservices Journal Even though it's now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL - soa.sys-con.com - remains unchanged. And that's no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are talking about microservices instead, ... (more)
