Buzzword bingo for software automation

Infrastructure as code (IaC) delivers the promise of agility and speed to IT Ops teams as well as developers. Yet new terms seem to be blended or, worse, misused in the context of what value can be achieved.

Containers are becoming the Lingua Franca of the cloud — not a fad

As a CIO you may be wondering if this “Container” fad has legs or may go the way of some other fads. Are containers just another piece of technology you will have to worry about maintaining 10 years from now and wish you hadn’t gone down this path?

The Virtuous Circle is key to understanding how the world is changing - Mobile, Social, Cloud, Open Source, APIs, DevOps

Virtuous Circle

I could talk about each of these components in isolation, for instance, Mobile and talk about the growth of it and changes it is fostering but you wouldn't get the big picture.  The change we are seeing can only be understood by considering all these components together.  They each affect each other and the widespread adoption and improvement in each drives the success of the other.  Therefore, this article is intended to give you the context to understand the entire change we are undergoing rather than any particular element.  By seeing that you see that adopting any one technology or doing any one thing will ultimately fail.

The idea of the virtuous circle is that each component of the circle has been critical to the success of the other parts of the circle.  It is hard to imagine the success of any of these elements in isolation.  The massive adoption of key aspects of the circle is clearly needed but each element of the circle has been key to the success and adoption of the other parts.    The constant improvement in each aspect of the circle drives improvements in other parts of the circle driving more adoption and more innovation.  The process feeds itself and grows faster as each element grows.   It is impossible to say which element is less - critical so they have to be considered as one.

These components of the virtuous circle imply that to leverage the benefits of the circle you have to be using components of the circle in your processes.   The more components you use the more benefit you gain from the circle and the faster the change you will experience.   The combination of these technologies is being called Platform 3.0.
