Sonatype and CloudBees Launch DevOps Express Initiative

Sonatype, the leader in software supply chain automation, today announced the launch of DevOps Express, a one-of-a-kind industry initiative that simplifies access to a set of integrated, battle-tested DevOps solutions aiming to accelerate any organization’s time-to-value.

Prior to DevOps Express, buyers were forced to assess, assemble and support best-in-breed solutions themselves. As a foundational member of DevOps Express, Sonatype collaborated with CloudBees to design an approach that makes it easier for enterprises to acquire, design, integrate and support DevOps native tools. Other industry leaders participating in the initiative include Atlassian, BlazeMeter, CA Technologies, Chef, DevOps Institute, GitHub, Infostretch, JFrog, Puppet Labs, Sauce Labs, SOASTA, and SonarSource.

“No single technology provider offers an end-to-end DevOps solution. That’s why this DevOps Express initiative is a crucial industry development,” said Wayne Jackson, CEO, Sonatype. “In fact, DevOps practices have always emphasized collaboration within an organization to accelerate the pace of software delivery. Sonatype and the other DevOps Express partners are extending that collaboration into the buyer’s journey.”

As part of the DevOps Express initiative, Sonatype is delivering a set of twelve integrations available to the community. Integrations include:

Beyond product integrations, Sonatype has also taken the lead with DevOps Express partners to deliver the first set of 31 DevOps reference architectures. Each of the architectures reveals real-world deployments that integrate tools from participating DevOps Express members.

“DevOps Express is designed to streamline the efforts of enterprises looking to accelerate software development and delivery,” said Sacha Labourey, CEO and founder of CloudBees. “In partnership with Sonatype and other best-in-breed technology vendors, we are able to move the needle and provide enterprises with integrated DevOps solutions.”

“Every organization moving into the continuous delivery and DevOps era will benefit from the kind of organic industry collaboration exemplified by DevOps Express,” said Donnie Berkholz, Research Director for Development, DevOps, & IT Ops at 451 Research. “Rather than forcing enterprises to find their own way through a transformation, DevOps Express founding members are taking a proactive stance to help identify, integrate, and support a set of battle-tested, DevOps-native solutions.”

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.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
