[G u e s t P o s t] Every company, technological ones in particular, is faced with a long list of challenges concerning productive work environments. For starters, traditional concepts of hiring local talents, which may or may not exist, and having all employees work together in the same office space have proven, over the years, to bring about a number of interruptions and fairly unproductive work environments. What is lacking is focus.
[G u e s t P o s t] The term “DevOps” has been floating around the IT industry since 2009, yet a very select number of people seem to actually understand what it means. Companies make efforts to create DevOps teams, appoint DevOps managers, and even seek outside consulting, but the main point that is missing is that there is no one person, or small group of people within a company that can “do” DevOps. It is a culture that needs to be accepted and practiced by the company as a whole. Only then can it effectively contribute to the ultimate goal of customer satisfaction.
Last two days were extremely interesting at the Devops Days Conference in Tel Aviv. It was impressive to see the amount of professionals that attend and the amazing energies that supported a great open space sessions and networking. The successful conference was initiated by the great Gigaspaces team led by the honorable (and a very good friend) Mr. Nati Shalom, CTO at Gigaspaces. You can also check these recorded sessions.
