When implemented effectively, Continuous Delivery (CD) embraces the DevOps philosophy of collaboration between traditionally separate teams: development and operations. CD is the automated implementation of the build, deploy, test, and release process. With CD, software is always in a releasable state. With every change to any part of the software system — infrastructure, application code, configuration, or data — a release candidate goes through a delivery pipeline where the software is created, environments are built, databases are constructed, tests are run, and software is deployed. Many tools make up a platform capable of moving the software system along this pipeline.

Efficient Software Development

 

Many small and medium sized companies need software development done inhouse. However, there are couple of problems.

 

1.0 Fresh Community College and University graduates are not well prepared to apply the knowledge of academic learning to software development.

2.0 The academic and industrial gap of software development is generally learnt on the job and on one’s own initiative. The training takes about 3-5 years.

3.0 Many small and medium business unknowingly becomes the training ground for fresh graduates. The fresh graduates learn the trade at your expanse and after some time they go to a better paying company, leaving you cold

Snort Network intrusion Detection System

Snort is a free and open source network intrusion prevention system (NIPS)[citation needed] and network intrusion detection system (NIDS)

Snort's open source network-based intrusion detection system (NIDS) has the ability to perform real-time traffic analysis and packet logging on Internet Protocol (IP) networks. Snort performs protocol analysis, content searching and matching. These basic services have many purposes including application-aware triggered quality of service, to de-prioritize bulk traffic when latency-sensitive applications are in use.

The program can also be used to detect probes or attacks, including, but not limited to, operating system fingerprinting attempts, common gateway interface, buffer overflows, server message block probes, and stealth port scans.[10]

Snort can be configured in three main modes: sniffer, packet logger, and network intrusion detection.[11] In sniffer mode, the program will read network packets and display them on the console. In packet logger mode, the program will log packets to the disk. In intrusion detection mode, the program will monitor network traffic and analyze it against a rule set defined by the user. The program will then perform a specific action based on what has been identified.

 

 Please contact us to learn how SNORT can help your network Management  and security solutions.

 If your organization uses multiple spreadsheets across organization for information storage and reporting, you need to consider a  database  for efficiency and productivity.

 

Microsoft Access is a database management system (DBMS) from Microsoft that combines the relational Microsoft Jet Database Engine with a graphical user interface and software-development tools. It is a member of the Microsoft Office suite of applications, included in the Professional and higher editions or sold separately.

Microsoft Access stores data in its own format based on the Access Jet Database Engine. It can also import or link directly to data stored in other applications and databases.[1]

Software developers, data architects and power users can use Microsoft Access to develop application software. Like other Microsoft Office applications, Access is supported by Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), an object-based programming language that can reference a variety of objects including DAO (Data Access Objects), ActiveX Data Objects, and many other ActiveX components. Visual objects used in forms and reports expose their methods and properties in the VBA programming environment, and VBA code modules may declare and call Windows operating system operations.

IT Service Management (ITSM)  and Lean, Devops and  Continuous Delivery

 

Definition of Information Technology Service Management

IT service management (ITSM) refers to the entirety of activities – directed by policies, organized and structured in processes and supporting procedures – that are performed by an organization to plan, design, deliver, operate and control information technology (IT) services offered to customers. It is thus concerned with the implementation of IT services that meet customers' needs, and it is performed by the IT service provider through an appropriate mix of people, process and information technology.

 

Differing from more technology-oriented IT management approaches like network management and IT systems management, IT service management is characterized by adopting a process approach towards management, focusing on customer needs and IT services for customers rather than IT systems, and stressing continual improvement.

 

The IT Chaos and Solutions Process

Now a days, the future of a company appears to hang almost entirely on Enterprise e-commerce and mission critical ERP. The political storm brewing behind such  projects, led by  the marketing manager and hidden agenda, adds further tension. Faced with the conflict of E-commerce and ERP requirements against firefighting and competing projects, IT manager  and his team enter a spiral of problems, mistakes, gloom and despair. Thanks to a growing insight into Lean, Agile and DevOps concepts, IT manager  and his team can  gradually evolve their way of working. By the time NextKillerProject  arrives later in the scenario, they’re able to release and support the project reliably, efficiently, and emerge with strengthening morale out the other side. Value of  central change management and Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) is proved and demonstrated to know-all skeptics. No more hardware upgrades causing software firefighting and vice versa.

 

A  Keen Computer Observation

 The problem  addressed by ITSM   has appeared in  almost all the organization that has formal and informal IT department. The problem the ITSM addresses is not only technical like network management or software development- it  encourages a culture of system level thinking and teamwork. The central change management, testing and experimentation, rollout and rollback scenario consideration is crucial for success. 

 

Summary

ITSM stresses the fact that Systems Engineering is necessary for avoiding core IT chaos involving Software, Hardware and IT fire-fighting and finger pointing with individual inner agenda and organizational politics . It’s not the case that, DevOps and Agile approaches to working have magically evaporated all the challenges facing a normal organization. Conflict, incidents and mistakes are inevitable – what counts is how team members grow to manage and resolve them using Systems Engineering principals . In the end the organization must have structure, process, and a more open attitude to change and adaptation to stand them in good stead. An approach to System Level thinking and systems approach is necessary

At its most practical, The ITSM is an illustrative series of process and suggestions for ways to evolve IT from a function that’s viewed as a bottleneck to one that’s widely agreed to be an indispensable capability. And at both levels, The enterprise ERP and E-commerce needs  DevOps that includes the wider organization, and the wider organization can learn a lot from DevOps and ITSM.
