What is new to DevOps this week? 06/12/19

It’s crazy to think that December is finally here and we have almost reached the end of 2019. DevOps has seen its highs and lows, but, although we are all ready for a break, DevOps (as a concept) never sleeps. So let’s take a look at what these firms have been doing to keep the industry going.


Digital transformation firm Mindtree, has been appraised at Level 5 in the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) V2.0. It means that the team has had a proven commitment to high quality software development process and delivery standards.

Debashis Chatterjee, CEO & MD of Mindtree comments: “At a time when new technologies and new delivery methodologies are a norm, it was only logical for us to test ourselves on the new age framework of CMMI 2.0. This Level 5 assessment emphasizes the high level of rigor in data and metrics-driven practices we follow and validates our delivery methodologies, systems and governance.”

Support in Kubernetes

Another digital transformation delivery company, Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), has announced support for Kubernetes to provide its clients a new option for cloud containerization orchestration on AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, Pivotal, and Red Hat.

“As organizations continue to turn to the cloud, they want a modern cloud architecture that gives them the flexibility and cost control needed to succeed in today’s fast-changing markets,” said Don Schuerman, CTO and vice president, product marketing, Pegasystems.

Adding templates for teams

An award-winning collaboration-solutions company, Nureva Inc., has publicized that it has added 13 agile-themed templates to Span Workspace. The company’s cloud-based digital canvas will help with visual planning and team collaboration and have the option of customizable templates designed to help teams progress.

“These new templates are tailor-made for planning and execution of their most common and recurring activities, and we look forward to seeing the impact they will have on team velocity, engagement and collaboration,” says Nancy Knowlton, Nureva’s CEO

Updated platforms

HCL Technologies (HCL), a global tech firm, spoke of the general availability (GA) of the latest version of Domino, the secure enterprise rapid-application-development platform. This newest style represents a HCL’s commitment to modernise and innovate the Domino ecosystem.

Darren Oberst, CVP and Head of HCL Software says: “Domino has proven its versatility, scalability and low total cost of ownership in large enterprises around the world for decades, and with v11, we are modernising and opening the platform to build upon these foundational strengths for the next generation of applications.”

There are still a few weeks left of the year still to go, with one last push, it will be exciting to discover what the rest of the year holds.
