The pandemic has accelerated digital business initiatives. Ultimately, it’s the application that delivers new capabilities to customers and employees; but transformation occurs at several layers to support those applications. At VMware, we see our customers navigating three transformations, each of which supports digital business and app modernization at different levels.

App modernization has played an outsize role in many organizations’ digital transformation journeys throughout 2020. In fact, 70 percent of IT leaders indicated that they’ve prioritized app modernization efforts because of the pandemic, according to a September 2020 thought leadership paper commissioned by VMware in which Forrester Consulting surveyed more than 200 global enterprise CIOs and SVPs of IT.

When developing applications for Kubernetes, which is a distributed system, developers and platform engineers need to know both how to monitor them and understand how they impact their business. There are several tools available to instrument Kubernetes clusters and code, but figuring out which options are the right ones can be challenging. That’s why we created the Introduction to Observability course on KubeAcademy.

In previous blog posts, we’ve talked about the process of setting up vSphere with Tanzu (see our quick start guide) and creating your first Tanzu Kubernetes Cluster (TKC). As a vSphere Administrator, you might be saying to yourself, “This is cool and all, but what’s next? What’s an easy application to deploy?” The easiest target is the standard NGINX Kubernetes deployment, but that’s very basic.

Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is a hot topic, but what exactly does it entail? And do you have to follow the principles to a T in order to achieve benefits from it? If you’re searching for answers to these common questions, look no further. In this episode of the Cloud & Culture podcast, VMware Tanzu’s Hannah Foxwell explains the what, why, and how of SRE—from key principles (such as SLI, SLO, and error budgets) to real-life examples of enterprise adoption.

What made the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns so novel in recent history is that they were true existential threats to many businesses. This was not a case of getting “Ubered,” whereby the erosion of revenue can take years to fully materialize. Rather, this was a case of companies needing to—sometimes literally overnight—expand their digital operations and adopt new business models.

The upstream Kubernetes community recently discovered a security issue—CVE-2020-8554— affecting multitenant clusters that allows anyone who is able to create a ClusterIP service and set the spec.externalIPs field to intercept traffic to that IP address. There is no patch for this issue yet, and it can currently only be mitigated by restricting access to the vulnerable features.

In this demo, you will see one method for how VMware Tanzu Build Service and VMware Tanzu Application Catalog can be used together to build a functional application stack. Each layer within these stacks will be automatically monitored for any patches or upgrades, and automatically rebuilt and ready to deploy. Not only will these systems keep all your containerized applications up to date, but further tools are provided to automatically scan all contained code for vulnerabilities, report on what is included in each container, and hashed to ensure a secure application dependency supply chain.

In this episode, I discuss four software and operations metrics to start with when you’re doing your digital transformation, app modernization stuff: deployment frequency, lead time for changes, time to restore service, and change failure rate. Also, I discuss my thoughts on TRRS vs. TRS cables, and USB-C variations.

In this episode, Coté is joined by Rick Clark and Sophie Seiwald to discuss management challenges of remote working. You know the drill: everyone has been working from home since the spring, taking away all the advantages and habits of working face-to-face. What’s new in this conversation is some advice for doing strategy communication, something that’s especially important when you’re relying on autonomous developer teams. We also discuss keeping people’s spirits up and making casual conversations with the boss more like running into each other in the hallway instead of an ominous “we need to talk” meeting.

When was the last time you got a Kubernetes cluster up and running and said, “Welp, now we’re done”? Probably never. The cluster is only one part of the puzzle. In this demo, you will see eight open source technologies that provide different aspects of operating Kubernetes. Get a technical demo of Kubernetes automation with Cluster API, use Kubeapps and Harbor to provide easy access to new applications, utilize Antrea and Contour to improve network performance, visualize the cluster with Octant, measure conformance with Sonobuoy, and save the day with Velero.

Why You Need Application Modernization Most developers work on existing applications (apps): products and services that have been built, maintained, and updated over long periods of time. Normally, these apps exist as a web of tightly coupled, sparsely documented systems.

The adoption of multi-cloud is on the rise among enterprises. However, major cloud providers including AWS, Azure, GCP, or VMware Cloud on AWS are different and monitoring across diverse cloud environments is not easy. Learn what metrics should you as DevOps or SRE engineer observe on each of the major cloud providers. Also, learn why is Tanzu Observability by Wavefront essential for unified, full-stack, multi-cloud observability, and analytics.

It's common in talks about digital transformation to make fun of waterfall as a software delivery methodology, but that's not entirely fair. Waterfall works great if your requirements are unchanged, you understand your users and, as a result, you don't need to be highly adaptable to users' changing needs.

Modernizing Software Development to Improve Your Business. Wrapping your mind around what exactly "digital transformation" is-and, more importantly, what to do about it-can be difficult. In my experience, "digital" is a catch-all phrase for "doing new things with IT." That could mean anything from moving desktop management to virtual desktops, using SaaS more, or selling insurance policies and industrial solvents on Instagram.
