#Code of #DevOps #Practice
Code of DevOps Practice is an open proposal for organising creative work of DevOps in modern enterprise. The document includes: subject, cause, values, pillars and principles of the DevOps development as well as some best practice recommendations and a list of referred articles.
#Why We Need #Agile #Agility for #DevOps
While DevOps have elevated delivery velocity to the level that only Sun is higher and made it the goal and work effectiveness criteria (regardless quality), they still claim they are agile. The article takes a look into Agile Manifesto and Scrum Guide for the role of velocity. Neither the Agile Manifesto nor the latest version of the Scrum Guide (2017) reveals velocity at all, but have many loopholes inherited by DevOps.
Problems in #Microservice #QA and #Solutions
One of the major task of DevOps is a speedy delivery of Microservice into production. The major objective of QA and Testing is to find as many bugs as possible. Fixing these bugs slows down the delivery. The article describes this conflict in details, outlines problems in testing articulated by Mr Martin Fowler, proposes additional tests and explains how to improve quality of the released Microservices.
#Microservice #Protection based on the principle of #Zero #Trust
The task addressed in the article is about protecting Microservice’s functionality and resources in the inter-Microservice interactions. Known techniques like OpenID Connects, JWT and OAuth2 were reviewed from the perspective of Microservice interactions. It has been found that these techniques cannot be applied as-is to the Microservices either because unanswered questions to them or because of doubtful trustfulness of related workflows.
The article proposes two protective methods for Microservice (or service) that have sensitive functionality and/or resources. While the Basic Protection Method is just a classic identity verification and following access permission control, the method does not require single centralised Identity and Permission Authorities. The latter can be distributed as needed following the distribution of Microservice-based applications. The Closed Optimised Protection Method replaces Identity and Permission Authorities with Dependency Catalogue Service per application and provides full protection with performance comparable with OpenID-JWT/OAuth2.

#Contribution of #Architects into #Testing
Article discusses issues with modern light-weight testing applied via automation in DevOps practice and states that such testing is not necessarily enough for quality products, especially in the case of distribution in Cloud.
How smart is #Smart #Contract?
The first time I heard about the automation of contract negotiation and agreement in 2001-2002. It was written in ebXML (backed by OASIS and UN/CEFACT). It was an amazing achievement because the first SML Conference took place just in 2001. The endeavour fails because of two major reasons, as I learnt later: Recent splash of …
Jamming #ISO #20022 into #Open #Banking #API makes them #REST-ish, not #RESTful
This case is a perfect example where a business value requires an adequate technical instrument, but when the instrument is driven by technology convenience, nobody cares about the business values. We are talking about a well-known problem that UK Open Banking (OB) and EU PSD2 face with financial transactions. It seems that the technology considerations …

Do we really need identity propagation in SOA and Clouds?
2012 IT developers and, especially IT Security specialists struggled for years trying to create an identity control at the enterprise level. The most known initiative and model in this area is Single Sign On (SSO) where an identity of an end-user can be propagated between systems and can be recognized across an enterprise. In today’s …

#Purpose #Case #Management and #Solution #Flexibility #Estimate
2012 Preamble After many years of process-dominating approach to our work, we have collectively “discovered” that the process is not the only way of doing things. There are many unstructured activities and even social activities that have to be governed and managed. These activities affect our daily productivity and, at the end, an efficiency of …
