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.

Managers Don’t Have to Hate Agile | @CloudExpo #IoT #Agile #DevOps

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.
