"The fast pace of innovation demanded by today’s digital businesses challenges traditional processes for the deployment and governance
of application delivery and supporting infrastructure. To address the increased pace of change, many organizations are transforming by adopting DevOps: a set of practices which employs continuous integration processes, breaking down the silos between development and operations teams.
As cycle times accelerate, and development teams adopt more Agile delivery methodologies, the traditional model for application security can be a drag on the speed and agility inherent in a continuous integration process. This creates a natural friction. Security teams can be perceived as slowing down or blocking delivery. At the same time, however, the apps are exposed to significant threats.
The goal of continuous integration is to deliver more frequent releases with more new capabilities to market, faster. It’s all about speed."
Software development has evolved from rigid waterfall methodologies to more streamlined
approaches, like Agile and more recently DevOps. This evolution has taken place in
large part to shorten development life cycles and meet increased business demands.
Today, businesses of all sizes have built an advantage by implementing a DevOps culture
and processes, which break down silos between development and operations, allowing
organizations to create better software faster.
As organizations implement DevOps on Amazon Web Services (AWS), they need to
understand the security implications. The AWS Shared Responsibility Model makes clear
that AWS secures what’s “on the cloud,” while the customer is responsible for securing
their assets “in the cloud.” When AWS customers go about securing their DevOps
environments, they need to do so in a way that provides robust protection without limiting

Jigs and fixtures offer manufacturers a reliable process for delivering accurate, high-quality outcomes, whether for a specific part or feature, or for consistency across multiples of parts. Although the methodologies and materials for producing jigs and fixtures have evolved beyond the conventional metal tooling of years past, their position as a manufacturing staple remains constant due to the benefits they offer.
This eBook discusses the use of additive manufacturing (AM) for jig and fixture applications, and demonstrates how production support can be improved in terms of speed, cost and functionality. The applications included within this eBook offer a mere glimpse at what is possible with AM for production support. The examples chosen illustrate opportunities for applying design principles and technology capabilities that are transferable across a wide range of applications.
Governments have long found it challenging to modernize legacy IT systems. Now comes pressure to offer digital government services. However, which takes priority? The answer is both. But rather than thinking linearly, the smart way is to execute simultaneously by standing a traditional IT approach on its head. Government agencies need to use technology to develop proactive and digital government services, from the outside in, from the perspective of the constituent, while making modernizing adjustments. To be successful, it is critical for government agencies to move beyond traditional development methodologies by adopting an agile development approach. But what are the challenges? How can they modernize massive projects already in the works? In short, how to get there? Download this E-bookand find out where government agencies are falling short and where they can improve regarding digitization.

The traditional technical and cultural challenges that large, hierarchical IT organizations face become more visible during times of IT transformation, such as the adoption of cloud technologies, DevOps practices, and agile methodologies. Persistent organizational culture is organic, and it can be extremely difficult for IT leaders to dictate it effectively from the top down. IT leaders can, however, use technology to encourage proper incentive structures in all levels of the organization. This paper explores the role of OpenShift by Red Hat in creating an atmosphere where creative and passionate developers can succeed frequently and quickly. Their success means decisionmakers can impact organizational culture and more rapidly achieve their goals. In this way, IT leaders can harness the efficiency and persistence of spontaneous organization, despite the inherent limitations of hierarchical systems.

As the application economy drives companies to roll out applications more quickly, companies are seeing testing in a new light. Once considered a speed bump on the DevOps fast track, new tools and testing methodologies are emerging to bring testing up to speed.
In this ebook, we’ll explore some of the challenges on the road to continuous testing, along with new approaches that will help you adopt next-gen testing practices that offer the ability to test early, often and automatically.
Business applications have become the battleground for customer loyalty. To compete, IT organizations are under pressure to deliver applications faster and with higher quality. Continuous Delivery (CD) of code offers a solution. CD may be paired with DevOps, Agile and other methodologies. However, QA and testing can be an obstacle to CD’s rapid development and deployment of high quality code. Testers and developers must engage in Continuous Testing, continuously testing software for performance, quality and user experience as it’s being developed.
Continuous Testing is not a push button process, though. It requires a comprehensive approach. This paper outlines the common challenges to Continuous Testing and highlights results from real users who have used technology to get to succeed with the Continuous Testing process.
To compete successfully in today’s economy, companies from all industries require the ability to deliver software faster, with higher quality, and reduced risk and costs. This is only possible with a modern software factory that can deliver quality software continuously. Yet for most enterprises, testing has not kept pace with modern development methodologies. A new approach to software testing is required: Continuous Testing.
In the first session in a series, join product management leadership to gain in-depth insights on how by shifting testing left, and automating all aspects of test case generation and execution, continuous testing, it enables you to deliver quality software faster than ever.

Software plays a central role in business processes and in our daily lives, and companies of all sizes and industries are building, buying and downloading more applications than ever before. However, this increased dependence on software makes the applications powering our world a prime target for cybercriminals. Applications are the No. 1 attack vector for cybercriminals and the main source of breaches.
In addition, the way software is developed is changing. Contemporary application development methodologies like DevOps are increasing the speed and precision with which software is produced and deployed. The increased speed and precision have created a modern software factory akin to the manufacturing factories of past industrial revolutions.
