What do GigaOm analysts see as the big trends in 2023? 

This week I spoke to a number of GigaOm analysts about how they see 2023. Costs are driving, and consolidation, better architectures and more and governance are following, they told me – while this will cause a wave of uncertainty, you can be taking steps now to get ahead. Let’s tune into what they said, and do get in touch if you have any thoughts. ...

Why DevOps is failing: It’s Not You, It’s The Tools

We all know the adage — “Bad workers blame their tools.” But here’s five reasons why the software tools involved in DevOps in general, and the CI/CD pipeline in particular, have become part of the problem rather than the solution.  1. They take too long to deploy This, it must be said, is a massive irony. When software...

A three-point plan for mid-market technology cost saving

Sweat your infrastructure, review your contracts and assess your workloads All mid-market organizations are reviewing how they can make better use of their budgets next year. This starts with the infrastructure you have already paid for and how to get the most out of it. When I talked about sweating assets in a previous article, this really...

In Software Development, Address Complexity and the Rest Will Follow

Where is DevOps going? Is it ‘dead’ as some are suggesting, to be replaced by other disciplines such as platform engineering? I would proffer that while it was never as simple as that, now is as good a moment as any to reflect on approaches such as those discussed in DevOps circles.

How GitOps is Driving Cloud Native at Scale

GitOps is great, isn’t it? What’s that, I hear you ask. Simply put, in these days, where all infrastructure can be virtualized, GitOps is about managing information about what that needs to look like (written as a text file), alongside the application that’s going to run on it. Hold onto that word ‘managing’.  The concept of infrastructure-as-code...

Cybersecurity in the mid-market: Playing catch-up in a cold budgetary climate

In a previous article, I said how important it was for mid-market organizations to spend on security – “The more you spend, the harder you’re going to be able to penetrate, even if the target is ultimately larger.” For ransomware gangs for example, ROI is key – they’re asking, how do I get the most return for the least investment? They found that certain...

Let’s kill email! Cybersecurity as a driver to better communication strategy

Email has been around for a while, and I really do mean a while: it was first conceived back in 1971, by US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) programmer Ray Tomlinson. Whilst electronic mail services existed in the 1980s, the internet boom of the 90s really added rocket fuel to the solution, delivering 400 million email users by the...

CXO Insight: Cloud Cost Optimization

One of the most common discussions with users these days is about the cost of public cloud and what they can do to reduce their bills. I visited AWS Re:Invent last week, and there was no exception. What can enterprises do to solve the cost problem? And what is AWS, the biggest of the cloud providers, in this space? Why does it...
