The growth of robotic process automation (RPA) over the past few years has been one of technology’s great success stories. On the face of it, RPA’s huge popularity makes perfect sense. Properly executed, RPA is able to automate a wide range of repetitive, rules-based processes, vastly reducing the time spent on routine tasks, as well as the potential for human error which often accompanies such work.
For many companies, having a single M365 tenant is a benefit – it creates one uniform environment where an organization can easily manage, collaborate and share information. Historically, enterprises struggle with large M365 tenant management in three key areas – efficiency, security, and ROI.
It should be easier to find answers to basic questions, but for testers working with automation, there hasn’t really been a go-to resource for this. The Automation Cookbook, a new test automation resource, aims to solve this issue for the engineering community. The Automation Cookbook is filled with individual bite-sized video recipes that solve specific problems testers might be having at any given moment.
Scriptless testing offers some immediate benefits to three common testing roles in most organisations: business testers, developers and test engineers. Once scriptless is introduced among these three groups, organisations can achieve up to 85 to 90 per cent test automation coverage on each and every regression cycle.
The low-code approach simplifies application development by replacing hand-coding with reusable components that can be stacked together via a drag-and-drop interface. While these platforms help reduce IT strain, decrease costs, and increase productivity, they come with their own set of challenges.
The foremost problem that organisations encounter when trying to automate is knowing their own environment. That simply won’t do. Organisations need to know their environments inside and out – they need to know where their nodes are located, they need to know what kind of web servers and operating systems they use and they need to know how certificates are used within their environment.
How will autonomous databases affect the role of data administrators? While the job itself is not going to disappear, the role of the DBA will continue to change and must adapt to AI and machine learning. This article examines what complexities data administrators will have to handle, how the job will shift, and what manual tasks autonomous databases will continue to take over.
As the end of the year approaches, we took some time to talk to John Pocknell, senior solutions product manager at Quest Software, about his vision of the future. We talk about database management, database automation, the rise of NoSQL and the evolving role of the database administrator or DBA.
Security is no joke, especially as more and more companies are moving to cloud-based container setups. The stakes are high, and the price of a security breach can be catastrophic. CEO of NeuVector Fei Huang shares his thoughts about why DevSecOps matters and how to shift left and right to ensure security is considered all through the lifecycle, not just at deployment.
Container technology is more widespread than ever, but a report has found that security standards are unable to keep up with the pace. We interviewed Ali Golshan, CTO and co-founder of StackRox about what causes container security issues and how to improve the way security is approached.
The OutOfMemoryError can be a real pain to troubleshoot, and it’s still done manually for the most part, even in this day and age. Ram Lakshmanan teaches you how to automate troubleshooting and identifying the root cause of this error.
Continuous integration, continuous deployment and now continuous automation. What’s all the fuss about and why should you be thinking about it? Olivia Diaz lays out the benefits to businesses willing to automate their DevOps processes.
Automating routine, boring tasks sounds great. Automation promises to rid developers of scutwork and let them focus on the meaty details. However, as Oren Eini explains, this is a snare that causes more problems than it solves.
The Atlassian Summit is behind us but now’s the perfect time to roll out the interviews with Atlassian executives. We talked to Sid Suri, Head of IT Strategy at Atlassian about everything DevOps, including pillars such as monitoring and automation, the importance of Ops and more.
