Three Ruling Technology Trends to Watch Out for in 2018
As we head into a new year, IT improvements and management should be top of mind for any business looking to amp up their customer experience, delivery and service in 2018. Recently, at CA World ‘17, I talked about how every business strategy is now an IT strategy. With that in mind, I have a few predictions for 2018 that I encourage companies to have on their to-do list as they look to find greater success in the new year.
#1 It's all about DevSecOps
Security will remain top of mind for customers, but the software development lifecycle will now need to integrate security from start to finish in a seamless way. The need for speed and velocity with quality in development has created a "shift-left" movement that integrates security from the start, which needs to be easy and accessible for developers as they write code.
It also needs to morph and leverage the immense amounts of data generated by a business to protect information and mitigate risks. Bringing intelligence into this process allows you to speed up delivery in the application economy, and now that companies are relying on Agile and DevOps, there is an urgent need for the adoption of Secure DevOps.
