Mark Burgess (@markburgess_osl) is a theoretical physicist, but in his keynote at the 2016 All Day DevOps conference, he talked more about economics and human interactives than physics. What does either have to do as the keynote for a conference on DevOps? Well, for a little more background, Mark Burgess is also the founder and former CTO of CFEngine, a configuration management and automation framework, and is the author of Promise Theory. While at CFEngine, Mark worked to apply a theory of how the autonomous agents in software interact with each other. Promise Theory was born. Promise Theory sits counter to obligation theories. Obligation theories view human interactions and behavior under the assumption that people (or agents, in the case of software) choose behavior based on their obligation to follow the rules. Agents are obligated to take a certain action. Pro... (more)

[slides] Enterprise Agile Transformation | @DevOpsSummit @Scrumdotorg #Scrum #AI #DevOps

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Freeze the Pond vs Take the Hill: Two Metaphors for Enterprise Agile Transformation It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to change their culture and cultures are very hard to change. To paraphrase Peter Drucker, "culture eats Agile for breakfast." Successful approaches are opportunistic and leverage the power of self-organization to achieve lasting change. ... (more)

[slides] Is SaaS Dead? | @CloudExpo @stackArmor #SaaS #Cloud #DevOps #DX

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Is SaaS Dead? Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going "all-in" to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the "shrink-wrapped" software in the customers' cloud? Further, serverless computing, cloud marketplaces and DevOps are changing the economics of hosting and delivering software.

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Cloud Sprawl: The Rising Epidemic and What to Do About It Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack - from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they've also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all. Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here ... (more)
