eBook on Continuous Delivery for Managers Nets 3,000 Downloads

High Interest Shows CD Gaining Widespread Attention Within Executive Ranks

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/14/14 -- A new XebiaLabs eBook on how to develop and release enterprise software within days instead of months has achieved 3,000 downloads in 60 days, making it one of the most popular eBooks for managers on the topic of Continuous Delivery. The book, which is aimed at managers looking for a short, clear introduction to the topic, champions the concept of Continuous Delivery in enabling organizations to build automated software delivery platforms for releasing high-quality applications into the hands of users and customers faster.

"The IT Manager's Guide to Continuous Delivery: Delivering Software in Days, Instead of Months," has been well received by CIOs, development managers and professionals in quality assurance, testing and operations (DevOps) who view the fast conversion of good ideas into marketable software as a critical business imperative that drives success.

Continuous Delivery is a set of processes and practices that radically removes waste from the software production process and creates an effective feedback loop with end users. The end result is rapid time-to-market of enterprise applications and mobile apps.

"IT Managers Guide to Continuous Delivery" presents measurable business benefits and is written for non-technical readers, starting with concrete advice on how to get started.

"The overwhelming interest for this book demonstrates that Continuous Delivery is gaining momentum at the executive level," says co-author Andrew Phillips. "Releasing software quickly with high quality is the first key step.... The subsequent step is to rapidly collect feedback from users to guide the next set of ideas for further improvements. Adopting Continuous Delivery is critical because more and more cases prove that it truly works."

The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
