Holistic View of #SDLC and #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit @CollabNet #Scrum

Introducing CollabNet DevOps Lifecycle Manager (DLM)

If you haven't heard yet, CollabNet just put out some very big news for managing and gaining value from DevOps.

We introduced CollabNet DevOps Lifecycle Manager (DLM) - a platform designed exclusively for providing a single pane of glass, dashboard, and traceability views across your DevOps toolchain and processes from planning to operations and that can be traced back to planning and development.

CollabNet DLM gives companies a holistic view of the entire software development lifecycle with continuous feedback-all by leveraging your existing investment from point-tool vendors.

The CollabNet lab started working on this new product after seeing a gap in the market and listening to the needs of customers related to the DevOps toolchain. Due to the number of point solutions available for every part of the software development lifecycle-tools for plan and build, and all the way to release and deploy-enterprises have increasingly complex tool chains to manage.

While DevOps is supposed to be about uniting segmented disciplines, too many of today's solutions only provide limited automation, integration, and visibility. The result is that the entire process is overwhelming for enterprises to manage. Leaders are struggling to see everything that is happening across the board and to be able to take data-driven actions-which is essential to the entire premise of DevOps.

Also sorely missing from today's so-called DevOps solutions are tool integration and a clear contextual view of all the people, processes, and actions involved in the development lifecycle. CollabNet pioneered strong visibility and traceability capabilities; we innovated in this area. CollabNet DLM uniquely gives organizations a true central "pane of glass" to view and trace all aspects of the DevOps lifecycle.

CollabNet DLM not only allows you to view all tools, people, and processes through integration, but it enables you to make intelligent decisions and take actions based on "intelligent eventing," the logging and monitoring of every event across the tool chain.

With this "intelligent eventing" capability, enterprise-wide data becomes actionable, helping DevOps teams to make smarter decisions, automate manual tasks by setting rules, and ultimately delivering quality software at speed!

Here's a list of CollabNet DLM's features:

  • Integration
    CollabNet DLM integrates best-of-breed tool chains through a modern integration broker. This enables organizations to leverage existing IT assets and maintain data consistency and integrity across the application lifecycle. CollabNet DLM allows users to interchange tools without impacting process flow and to leverage reference architectures to create an optimal pipeline.
  • Collaboration
    Any existing point tools can be integrated easily into CollabNet DLM for planning, build, or release management, or users can leverage CollabNet's TeamForge and release manager modules to connect development, operations, and security teams with effective processes. CollabNet DLM promotes transparency and visibility with contextual traceability that spans the entire pipeline.
  • Automation
    By defining rules around events, users can customize DevOps flows and drive pipeline velocity by automating manual tasks. CollabNet DLM can also support third-party automation systems for executing continuous integration and continuous delivery flows.
  • Traceability and Reporting
    Using CollabNet DLM, users have a complete unified view of their application's plan-to-operations flow, including dependencies, bottlenecks, and enterprise dashboard visibility for DevOps managers up to the CIO.

We're already receiving positive market reception and feedback from customers. With analysts like Gartner and Forrester recently promoting the importance of visibility, team collaboration, toolchain tool coordination, and monitoring for continuous feedback and improvement, this shows that a product like CollabNet DLM is crucial to address the current challenge for organizations around their DevOps initiatives.

Thanks to all the great folks at CollabNet who have worked hard to release an excellent product! To take a deeper dive into the new features, webinars, and demos of CollabNet DLM, read the news release, get this data sheet and visit the product page.

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 will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality. Sponsors of @DevOpsSummit will benefit from unmatched branding, profile building and lead generation opportunities through:

  • Featured on-site presentation and ongoing on-demand webcast exposure to a captive audience of industry decision-makers.
  • Showcase exhibition during our new extended dedicated expo hours
  • Breakout Session Priority scheduling for Sponsors that have been guaranteed a 35-minute technical session
  • Online advertising in SYS-CON's i-Technology Publications
  • Capitalize on our Comprehensive Marketing efforts leading up to the show with print mailings, e-newsletters and extensive online media coverage.
  • Unprecedented PR Coverage: Editorial Coverage on DevOps Journal

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
