Abhishek Shankar SVP, Hi-Tech Industries and GM Enterprise Studio

The COVID-19 outbreak and resulting economic crisis have upended how companies work and operate. The massive shift to work-from-home triggered multiple business challenges such as the need for better communication and data security tools, revamp of business continuity planning (BCP) strategy, and onboarding of scalable cloud models. In fact, the challenges posed by this global disruption acted as a critical catalyst for many companies to accelerate their cloud adoption plans. And this trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. 


IDC DevOps Success Survey Yields Two Remarkable Findings
Adam Frary, MBA - Associate General Manager | March 18, 2021

It’s a good day when one receives research results that are both unanticipated and remarkable.

Thanks to Jim Mercer, Research Director within IDC's DevOps Solutions research practice, and the IDC team, we recently experienced such a moment of truth when we analyzed data from our survey, “Decoding DevOps Successes Improves Business Outcomes.”

The survey’s 1,000 data rows and 79 pivot tables confirmed and quantified commonly held views about quality improvements, lead times and agility, among other topics. Here are some widely acknowledged DevOps benefits with impressive, quantitative results:

  • 70% of DevOps leaders reported they release updates daily or hourly.
  • Even lagging organizations reported lead-time improvements of 21-40%.
  • 27% of all organizations saw “massive improvement in quality” as a result of DevOps.

Two findings deserve special attention:

Remarkable Finding #1: DevOps delivers substantial gains in employee satisfaction, decision-making, learning, innovation, and communication for organizations at every level of DevOps attainment.

Remarkable Finding #2: Business executives and customers value DevOps highly, most even more so than IT counterparts.


“Trust but Verify” is Obsolete: Zero Trust Networking

'Trust but Verify’ is obsolete, supplanted by the Zero Trust concept. Chances are, you already have the hardware and the software solutions you need to implement a Zero Trust environment, so the next step is designing and architecting the proper configuration.

Using a common organization structure to examine the effects of Zero Trust, topics covered include operating safely in the current threat environment, coordinating Zero Trust efforts, network access configuration, and incremental implementation suggestions. Goring further, topics also include considerations for narrowing the choice of domain users and domain computers, reducing the attack surface for data center resources, configuring OS firewalls to improve security, and policy changes.

Pick up practical technical insights on Zero Trust for reducing the attack surface and improving security posture. Learn when to go it alone in shifting to Zero Trust, and when to call in assistance, and considerations for design, architecture, and implementation.

If your enterprise is breached or compromised, you’ll quickly learn that “There’s no such thing as bad publicity” is a falsehood. Investigate applying Zero Trust to secure your environment.
