Another theme that arose often during our recent “DevOps: Wine-ing, Not Whining” event was the importance of software supply chains. Every software development organization has a software supply chain, and DevOps leaders are now applying principles from lean manufacturing, Deming, and Toyota supply chain management to improve their operations.

You remember Outlook, maybe some of you are unlucky enough to still use Outlook, but for Microsoft, Outlook […]
The New York Times had a great article this weekend that explored some of the disconnect in the industry. In “Power, Pollution and the Internet”, James Glanz writes: “[the] foundation of the information industry is sharply at odds with its image of sleek efficiency and environmental friendliness.” This article is interesting in that it calls […]
