What to Automate and What Not to Automate By Ron Gidron The benefits of automation are well documented; it increases productivity, cuts cost and minimizes errors. It eliminates repetitive manual tasks, freeing us up to be more innovative. By that logic, surely, we should automate everything possible, right? So, is attempting to automate everything a sensible - even feasible - goal? In a word: no. Consider this your short guide as to what to automate and what not to automate. What to Automate As we know, automation is the driving force behind continuous delivery and agile practices. It's helped change our digital landscape and is shaping businesses into the Modern Software Factories the application era requires. Automation's benefits can be applied to just about any department within an enterprise; from HR to Accounts, Dev to Ops - even the mailroom. However, certain... (more)

Defining DevOps Maturity | @DevOpsSummit #Agility #DevOps #DigitalTransformation

Defining DevOps Maturity By Ralf Paschen For over ten years, DevOps has been taking the world by storm. It has made organizations step back, evaluate their processes and implement enterprise-wide cultural and infrastructural change. Vendors have followed suite, introducing an abundance of continuous delivery tools to facilitate this step-change. L.P Hartley famously quipped, ‘The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there' - words which resound more than ever as we more further into the digital age. Agility and digital transformation is now the name of the game. ... (more)

IoT Automation and the Modern Software Factory | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M #Automation

IoT Automation and the Modern Software Factory By Scott Willson For what feels like a lifetime, industry analysts and experts have predicted ‘this' will be the year the Internet of Things (IoT) finally takes off, both within industry and for consumers. But, as if by clockwork, each year of ‘guaranteed' IoT explosion has passed - the mass adoption and exploitation of the Internet of Things having failed to materialize. The IoT vision is almost utopian in its promise: a connected intelligent home or office, offering a simpler more convenient future. Our houses will be populated by ... (more)

What Is Intelligent Automation | @CloudExpo #AI #Cloud #DevOps #Automation

What Is Intelligent Automation and What Does It Mean for Workload Automation? By Yann Guernion While Artificial Intelligence (AI) may not be a new concept, its contribution to automation may just change the face of business. AI's conception dates as far back as 1950, when Alan Turing proposed the Turing test in order to evaluate a machine's ability to exhibit intelligent behavior. Fast-forward a couple of decades and research led to the creation of well-known theoretical tools such as Fuzzy Logic, Bayesian Networks, Markov Models and Neural Networks. Concurrently, new types of pro... (more)

The Future of Automation | @DevOpsSummit #AI #ML #DX #DevOps #DigitalTransformation

Automating Progress: The Future of Automation By Chris Boorman We've all read the dystopian fiction, watched those apocalyptic movies and heard a myriad of prophetic warnings heralding our obsolescence. Surely now we're just a couple of years from flipping the switch on a Skynet of our own making and condemning mankind to the annals of history. Actually, we're not entirely sure what the future holds, but it's probably not fire and brimstone. For detractors and naysayers of technology, could there be a more fitting image than Terminator 2's opening shot? A hulking, skeletal, humano... (more)
