In a market downturn, reducing spending would seem to be the prudent course to pursue. However, surveys show that most companies intend to increase IT spending in 2023. A Spiceworks Ziff Davis survey, for example, found that even for businesses that plan to cut back in other areas, tech spending will increase. The survey found that more than one-half of companies surveyed planned to increase IT spending (compared with only 6% planning to decrease spending).

There are instances in which organizations miss the opportunity to improve their infrastructure and gain competitive advantages by clinging to entrenched, well-worn technologies with which they are comfortable. This is the case with Terraform and Cluster API (CAPI). When explaining to various organizations the benefits they could gain through CAPI, I have heard hesitant responses such as.

DevSecOps–short for development, security, and operations–is a trending practice that introduces security testing, triage, and risk mitigation as early as possible in the software development lifecycle, rather than bolting on security in the final stages. DevSecOps requires a shift (also known as “shift-left”) in culture, process, and tools across development, security, and operations teams to make security a shared responsibility.

A recent Wall Street Journal article cited a KPMG survey that showed that roughly 67% of 1,000 senior technology leaders at U.S. firms across industries said they have yet to see a significant return on cloud investments. The most common issues preventing a better return on cloud spending were insufficient skills of tech teams, additional security and compliance requirements, and a misalignment with expected outcomes, said Barry Brunsman, a principal in KPMG’s CIO Advisory group.

I was hesitant to write a piece on Henry Ford because of his unsavory political views that have tarnished his reputation. However, if we focus on Ford only as a businessman and innovator we can draw some compelling parallels to today’s industrial and business landscape. Thus, for this article we will postulate a modified Henry Ford, a virtual character who possesses only Henry Ford’s positive qualities.

Developers often struggle when first encountering the cloud. Learning about distributed systems, becoming familiar with technologies such as containers and functions, and knowing how to put everything together can be daunting. With this practical guide, you'll get up to speed on patterns for building cloud native applications and best practices for common tasks such as messaging, eventing, and DevOps. Authors Boris Scholl, Trent Swanson, and Peter Jausovec describe the architectural building blocks for a modern cloud native application. You'll learn how to use microservices, containers, serverless computing, storage types, portability, and functions.

Kubernetes is a distributed cluster technology that manages container-based systems in a declarative manner using an API. There are currently many learning resources to get started with the fundamentals of Kubernetes, but there is less information on how to manage Kubernetes infrastructure on an ongoing basis.

To keep pace with the ever-changing digital landscape, organizations are adopting open source and cloud native technologies at an incredible pace. But as the number of clusters and workloads grow, it can become increasingly difficult to know where clusters exist and how they are performing. And if multiple teams are provisioning and using clusters with different policies, roles, and configurations, you might as well jump ship. Because before you know it, you'll begin to experience cluster sprawl, and your multi-cluster operations will potentially capsize before you reach shore.
