CollabNet and VersionOne: Building Value at Enterprise Scale | @DevOpsSummit @CollabNet #Agile #DevOps

CollabNet’s goal is to innovate & introduce new ideas for efficient, effective software development to the enterprise market

This month has been more than exciting thanks to our recent merger with VersionOne. I am privileged to lead a great team at the newly expanded CollabNet. It is an honor to be a part of a team that makes daily strides to deliver value to customers through technical innovation, professionalism and hard work.

As I think about our merger with VersionOne, I am not only enthusiastic about the new levels of value we will soon offer to our customers, but also about how we will demonstrate the great value that can be unlocked for organizations through better, faster, more effective software development and delivery.

Our goal at CollabNet is to innovate and introduce new ideas for efficient and effective software development to the enterprise market. And, when it comes to offering open and scalable platforms for ALM collaboration, enterprise version control and DevOps, the high standard we set for driving innovation and quality products has been met to an impressive degree, and of course we know there is always more to aspire to achieve.

That's why, with the VersionOne enterprise Agile platform in our solution portfolio, we are able to extend our best-in-class offering to encompass the engine of today's software-driven digital transformations - enterprise Agile practices. While I'm excited about the technology, I'm equally excited about the mindset and approach both CollabNet and VersionOne advocate.

To deliver great value we must empower our customers to reduce the roadblocks and friction of using technology to innovate. Whether it's Agile, DevOps, open source or even waterfall, we view the software delivery lifecycle as a single, dynamic and continuous process.

Each and every organization has unique needs that require an open and flexible approach - coupled with security and governance. Both of our companies have focused on the concepts of easy, fast and secure. Now, we can include unified - from requirements, build and test, to deploy and release.

I now see a company that is truly best across the enterprise software lifecycle. Couple that with an open and flexible approach, and we have an opportunity to deliver value in new, unprecedented ways. We plan to move forward quickly to partner with our customers and deliver important new capabilities.

Therefore I am confident that current and future customers will benefit greatly from the deep experience both of our companies have in helping organizations transform and improve their software process and, of course, delivering value.

This is a major new chapter for CollabNet and VersionOne, and I look forward to continuing this journey as we merge our organizations, technology, people and processes!

I encourage you to reach out to your account teams with any questions and if you haven't see it already, here is an FAQ we created with answers to many questions about this exciting merger.

Thank you and welcome to the new CollabNet!

When you're operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential. Unfortunately, it is a real challenge balancing priorities between building new features and tools to help pinpoint root causes. Linkerd provides many of the tools you need to tame the chaos of operating microservices in a cloud native world. Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput.

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked questions that every enterprise trying to adopt an Enterprise Kubernetes Platform needs to know so that they can make informed decisions.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
