Top Stories by Flint Brenton

I recently had a conversation with Jennifer Lent from TechTarget. She's a respected thinker in our field and covers major trends. We spoke about the emergence of BizDevOps and its implications for businesses. We tackled a number of topics. She wrote about our conversation in a recent article, "BizDevOps: Here's how to make it happen in your organization." Since our conversation, I've been thinking more about BizDevOps, its challenges, and what makes the BizDevOps pipeline flow. Peter Drucker made the prescient statement that "Culture eats strategy for breakfast." This applies to BizDevOps - changing tech is not hard, but changing culture is. You can buy the tools and put the processes into place, but getting team buy-in and creating the cultural shift to make BizDevOps run are not easy tasks.

There are numerous examples of open source software making big splashes in the commercial space - Linux, Firefox, Apache - and inner source takes many of the lessons learned from these massively successful projects and shows you how you can apply some of those same ideologies and practices to your business. In the article "Getting Start... (more)

US Government 'Digital Services Playbook' By @Flint_Brenton | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Our Government's ‘Digital Services Playbook' Is Leading the Growth in Public/Private Sectors Last year I read an article in the Federal technology publication FCW that talked about the President's 2016 spending plan and how much of the focus is on the improvement of digital services. Overall, the IT spending budget is $86.4 billion and $105 million of that is slated to expand the U.S. Digital Service, the tech IT services group that was established in 2014 and is headed by Mikey Dickerson, a Google veteran. When President Barack Obama announced the U.S. Digital Service, he said, ... (more)

The DevOps Movement | @DevOpsSummit @CollabNet #DevOps #Monitoring

I recently hosted a webinar on Enterprise Software Development in Pursuit of Excellence that covers best practices for developing enterprise software that is both flexible and reliable. As software development becomes an integral part of today's enterprise, and teams are often dispersed globally, it's important as a developer to have some tried and true best practices to stand by. Scaling these principles and duplicating successes across the distributed enterprise can be a challenge however, particularly if other organizational stakeholders are turning on the heat when it comes ...
