    IT Modernization and DevOps News Week in Review

    Thanks to everyone who reached out following last week’s inaugural IT Modernization Week in Review blog.

In fact, Gartner predicts that by 2020, more than 50% of global organizations will be running containerized applications in production, up from less than 20% today.

    Driving Agility through IT Process Automation

    Automation. It’s a word that can mean so many things depending on your context. For CIOs looking to spearhead their organization’s digital transformation, it increasingly means creating agility for their organizations through IT process automation. The implications of this are vast for enterprises, as automation touches everything from technology, to IT processes and even the corporate culture. As a result, Flux7 CEO, Dr. Aater Suleman, has written a paper discussing how CIOs can use automation to be the driving force behind tomorrow’s innovation engine.Download it here or read on for highlights from his piece.

    AWS Case Study: QSR Adopts Amazon RedShift for Cost-Effective Analysis

    We recently had the opportunity to work with a popular quick serve restaurant (QSR) who reached out asking if Flux7 could help speed its developer outcomes for faster time to market. For this global enterprise, the goal manifested itself in a project where Flux7 helped the QSR create one-click automated installations of various products, including Amazon Redshift, through AWS Service Catalog which helped make development more efficient and productive-- through automation that minimized process overhead. Today we’d like to share the story of this AWS case study project.

    Optimize Code Delivery Pipelines with DevOps Automation

    Many developers steeped in the world of agile startups view continuous delivery (CD) pipelines as an accepted standard requirement for software development. Yet many companies, particularly large enterprises with traditional infrastructure, still struggle to make this approach a standard part of their development process. Whether you are an enterprise looking to make CD pipelines a standard project element to increase agility and speed time to market, or if you are looking to simply implement code delivery pipeline best practices, Flux7 CEO, Dr. Aater Suleman, has written a paper that illustrates how to deliver business value through DevOps-based automation that grows developer output and strategic contributions.

    AWS WAF, an AWS Security Best Practice

    One of the key business drivers of cloud based DevOps is greater scalability, which the DevOps team here at Flux7 sees quite often -- especially for eCommerce and digital business. So, as more and more organizations move to AWS for its scalability, availability, and reliability, it makes sense we’d get more and more questions about moving to new solutions like AWS Web Application Firewall (WAF). In today’s blog, we will address why such a move is a good choice for companies migrating their digital business to the cloud. Let’s kick-off the discussion with a little background on AWS WAF.

    AWS Case Study: Specialty Retailer Adopts Docker-Based Microservices

    In few industries is innovation more important than in the rapidly changing, highly competitive retail market. Tasked with servicing the organization’s eCommerce site and in-store systems, today’s AWS case study is about a well-known household name retailer who approached the DevOps team at Flux7 about enabling their in-house development team to stay nimble and one step ahead of the competition.

    AWS Case Study Research Firm Attains Secure High Performance Computing

    We recently had the opportunity to work with a privately-held clinical research organization that was interested in updating the systems that its internal team of research scientists uses for data analysis. It was interested in moving to the AWS cloud as the team’s large data-related demands had outgrown its on-premise system and needed the benefit of a highly secure, elastic, high performance computing environment.
