Today Flux7 announced it has closed a round of funding from NewWave Partners, LLC. This is truly exciting news for us, and a significant milestone as we continue to expand our DevOps consulting services to speed our customer’s time to results. The news just gets better as we are also announcing today that Sagar Lagisetti, a NewWave partner and executive director for Magnum Opus IT, an SAP Service Partner, will join the Flux7 Board of Directors. We are truly honored to have Mr. Lagisetti join our Board, bringing a breadth and depth of experience in shaping how companies do business.
When we started Flux7 in 2013, Aater and I were first-time entrepreneurs. While we knew we wanted to create a workplace that everyone enjoys coming to and being a part of, we weren’t versed on the best steps to take to get there. So, we started reading. (Actually, it started with Aater reading books and m listening to his summaries, but soon I started reading, too). Reading books really helped me learn and improve. So much so that I wanted to discuss every book I read with my coworkers, (now I understand why Aater shared all those book summaries) which led to the creation of the Flux7 Library.
At #DWS19, the DataWorks Summit in Barcelona, Cloudera introduced its strategy for bringing together Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP) and Cloudera Distribution Hadoop (CDH) following its merger. According to Cloudera’s Hollison, the CDP will have four primary elements: support for multi-function analytics; support every possible means of cloud delivery with a common metadata catalog and schema; a common security and governance model across both; and it shall be open platform.
In our last blog, we discussed the role of knowledge transfer (KT) in ensuring ongoing DevOps success. (In case you missed it, you can read it here) As promised, today we’re going to take a closer look at the specific KT offerings the Flux7 DevOps consulting team brings to bear to help customers achieve their DevOps adoption goals.
“Na hee gnanena sadrusham” - Nothing is comparable to knowledge. As this Sanskrit proverb implies, nothing is as crucial as knowledge transfer (KT) for DevOps success. More than simple DevOps training, KT is the process of creating, capturing, organizing, sharing and/or distributing knowledge to ensure its availability. Importantly, KT provides inputs to problem-solving for future users and use cases. It is through KT offerings that the Flux7 DevOps consulting team empowers its customers, teaching them how to fish and helping them build an Agile enterprise. (For more information, refer to our blog, Why We Teach Our Customers How to Fish.)
