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
"Pressure on IT to deliver new functionality continues to drive faster software development cycles. While agility has always been important, today’s IT teams must operate in a hybrid environment where applications take various forms: legacy systems that remain on-prem, existing applications migrated to the cloud, and new applications built with cloud-native approaches. The combination makes for an increasingly complex IT landscape — one in which simply migrating to the cloud falls short.
Read this Google Cloud guide and learn how IT leaders can better meet today’s challenges by capitalizing on the historic shift toward open, connected environments."
Extending DevOps to mainframe applications and teams is essential towards the agility and velocity that enterprises require to remain innovative in today’s turbulent digital business environment.
• For enterprises with mainframes, trying to achieve the benefits of Digital Transformation without dealing with existing mainframe assets is a fool’s errand.
• Breaking down silos and moving to DevOps is central to what it means to undergo Digital Transformation.
• Including the mainframe in modern software development approaches can improve quality overall, reduce test cycles and deployment timeframes, and ensure mainframe-based applications support the end-to-end performance requirements that today’s customers demand.

In the early years of software development, you would often design it, build it, and
only then think about how to secure it.
This was arguably fine in the days of monolithic applications and closed networks,
when good perimeter-based protection and effective identity and access management
would get you a long way towards minimising the risk. In today’s highly connected,
API-driven application environments, however, any given software component or
service can be invoked and potentially abused in so many different ways. Add to this
the increasing pace of change through iterative ‘DevOps-style’ delivery and ever-faster
release cycles, and many understandably assert that security management and
assurance nowadays needs to be an ongoing and embedded part of the development
and delivery process.

For many companies, in particular in industries like pharmaceuticals, software development, or entertainment, their intellectual property is more valuable than any physical asset. And with the increasing need to collaborate with external business partners to accelerate product life cycles and enhance innovation, there is a greater risk for sensitive information to be compromised.
In this 6-page white paper, discover the benefits of how the right inter-enterprise collaboration tool can ensure secure document sharing and team collaboration, and what to keep in mind as you look for a provider.
