CollabNet Named One of 25 DevOps Solutions Transforming Business | @DevOpsSummit @CollabNet #DevOps

The DevOps phenomenon is evolving from a cultural and professional movement into a mainstream operating model

CollabNet's CEO, Flint Brenton, was recently interviewed by CIO Solutions and TeamForge was ranked among the 25 DevOps Solutions Transforming Business in 2016. This article was featured in the recent CIO Solutions the DevOps editionCollabNet: Accelerating Application Development, Delivery and Collaboration

The DevOps phenomenon is evolving from a cultural and professional movement into a mainstream operating model. According to a Gartner survey*, DevOps toolsets had an estimated $2.3 billion market share in 2015, and will see major growth as 25 percent of Global 2000 IT companies are adopting the technology in 2016. Set against that backdrop is CollabNet, which has a strong history in pioneering innovative open source solutions and today provides best-of-breed Versioning, ALM and DevOps products, and Agile consulting and training services to help organizations develop and deliver enterprise-scale software faster. In the article, CollabNet CEO Flint Brenton, remarked that, "We enable companies to bring together distributed teams, increase productivity and speed time-to-market while reducing costs and regulation risks."

Flint also explained, "There is a lot of interest in how CollabNet covers DevOps because we allow developers and teams to collaborate in a unified way so that development is aligned with business objectives and future innovation. There is growing demand for what we do because developers find other DevOps products to be either proprietary or limited in scope. They do not unify teams and make it easy to work together, as CollabNet does. On a technical level they are not as flexible; for example, they do not factor in the heterogeneous and global environments and methodologies that enterprises operate in today. On a practical level, they do not cover governance and compliance the way CollabNet does. So CollabNet is ideal for enterprises that are taking DevOps to the next level and seeking to standardize on a flexible, easy-to-use DevOps solution that works across their enterprise."

Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
