Enabling High-Performance IT with DevOps

As organizations create increasingly complex software applications, IT development teams evolved their software creation practices for more flexibility, moving from waterfall models to agile or lean development practices.

Today, DevOps designates a set of tools, processes, best practices and corporate management guidelines that make an IT organization more agile and more efficient. While the software tools and practices promoted by DevOps practitioners are well understood, rigid infrastructures reduce the benefits and hinders the application of agile methods.

Join Amazon Web Services Premier Partner, 2nd Watch, for a live webinar to learn more about how to get the right approach to DevOps and Containers in the cloud.

  • CCPA: State Privacy Law Effects on Cloud Development Feb 25 2020 6:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Victoria Geronimo, Security & Compliance Project Manager
    Several states followed the lead of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) by enacting their own consumer privacy laws. The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), effective January 2020, goes even further in defining what constitues private data. What does that mean for your cloud journey and the development of cloud-native applications? How will you secure private data and adhere to each state’s regulations while building a foundation for future law changes without straining cloud infrastructure and digital application teams? This webinar highlights the obligations to be aware of, policies and procedures to pursue, cloud architectural considerations, and KPIs for determining successful implementation.

  • Demystifying DevOps: Identifying Your Path to Faster Releases and Higher Quality Recorded: Dec 11 2019 50 mins
    Stefana Muller, Sr. Product Manager
    DevOps is considered one of the most valuable business and engineering philosophies for companies in the digital age. It has transformed the way engineering teams collaborate to create and release software focusing on building a culture of trust, feedback and continuous improvement.

    As delivering software equates to delivering value to your customers, high functioning organizations find ways to deliver software faster while building in resiliency and security. Transforming your organization into a more agile and high-performing team cannot be accomplished through automation alone. DevOps is a set of tools, cultural values, and practices that improve organizational outcomes in software by increasing collaboration and feedback between Product Development, QA, IT operations, and Security. 

    A true DevOps Transformation includes an evolution of your company culture, automation and technology, processes, collaboration, measurement systems, and organizational structure. We invite you to join us to hear from 2nd Watch DevOps experts sharing the basic tenets of the DevOps methodology and how companies, teams and individuals can use it to transform and meet the demands of their customers. IT Management, Developers, testers, operations teams, security professionals, infrastructure engineers and project managers alike will find value in the discussion.

  • Single Realm Multi-Cloud Security Management with Palo Alto Networks Recorded: Aug 15 2018 59 mins
    Peter Meister, Sr. Director, Research & Strategy
    Customers across the globe are moving past mono-cloud operations and driving fast to consume cloud capabilities from multi-cloud providers. As clients start to use this broad multi-cloud fabric, it becomes ever more important to start to look at new and innovative ways to centralize management and security.

    In this session we will cover the new paradigm of thinking around Realm Management, the ability to manage multi-cloud infrastructure security from one central point of management and start collapsing the cloud providers down to a mission-critical cloud fabric. With the Palo Alto product family under the VM Series platform in coupling with Panorama, we are able to bring to life a single pane of glass management initiative that allows for central security, control and management of Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services in one console. We will review the technical architecture surrounding this solution and discuss, in-depth, the principal around realm management of multi-cloud and how best to centralize security once and push across many cloud providers at scale.

    Enterprise customers are moving quickly to multi-cloud consumption, and single realm security management will optimize and enhance the way they manage enterprise cloud security going forward.

  • Migrating Microsoft SQL Server to Amazon Aurora Recorded: Jun 26 2017 51 mins
    Jason Carver, Director of Product Development, 2nd Watch
    For decades, traditional relational databases have been the primary choice for data storage and persistence.

These monolithic architectures present many challenges, particularly in areas such as cost, flexibility, and availability.

    In 2016, Amazon Web Services Premier Partner, 2nd Watch, performed an analysis on the amount of AWS billing data that they had collected, and the number of payer accounts they had processed over the course of the previous year.
