When considering the future of DevOps, James stresses the fast rate at which this area is evolving: ‘we’re at an interesting stage of maturity…where value-stream management is at the centre of activities – we have a programme called velocity which makes that connection between the data visible. Over the next few years, more companies creating DevOps will be freed up by automation.’
The VSM capability in UrbanCode Velocity ingests data from various software development tools in the software delivery pipeline to provide insights into where the delivery process is experiencing bottlenecks, which code changes are behind schedule, and which teams and devs are overloaded. Armed with this information, a self-organizing app-dev team can rebalance, make adjustments and refine handoffs to optimise through-put and maintain a happy team.

After five years of research and development, IBM has taken the wraps off its first 7nm processor, which is packed with features to cater to the demands of modern-day hybrid cloud computing.
The tiny chip is the tenth iteration of IBM’s flagship Power processor range and is destined for enterprise data centres by the second half of 2021.
7-nanometre fabrication is the cutting edge of bitesize chip manufacturing and affords major gains in power efficiency and performance compared to the 14-nanometre process, like that used for IBM’s current-generation Power9 semiconductor. IBM said Power10 will deliver a three-fold improvement in capacity and processor energy efficiency compared to Power9.
Wimbledon 2020 was set to kick off at the All England Club this week.
But just like every other major sporting event under the sun, Covid-19 has stopped play, and the most-watched live sporting event in the UK won’t be returning to screens until next year.
