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!

The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO expands the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
Your applications have evolved, your computing needs are changing, and your servers have become more and more dense. But your data center hasn't changed so you can't get the benefits of cheaper, better, smaller, faster... until now. Colovore is Silicon Valley's premier provider of high-density colocation solutions that are a perfect fit for companies operating modern, high-performance hardware. No other Bay Area colo provider can match our density, operating efficiency, and ease of scalability.
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.
The vast majority of organizations today are in the earliest stages of AI initiatives and this shift will be dramatic as more enterprises move forward in the AI journey. Although companies are at different stages of this journey, most agree that finding or developing analytic talent is a key concern and bottleneck for doing more. What if your business could take advantage of the most advanced ML/AI models without the huge upfront time and investment inherent in building an internal ML/AI data scientist team? In this presentation, I will introduce the pros and cons of three pathways: 1. Utilize prepackage ML APIs, 2. Customizable AutoML, 3. Training your your ML models specifically tailored to your business needs. To win with Cloud ML, you will need to know how to choose a right approach in a quicker time frame and without significant investment.
As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
