Sanjeev Sharma, VP and Global Practice Director for Data Modernization, Delphix
As organizations mature on their DevOps adoption journey, adopting Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) automation, and breaking down organizational silos, application delivery and infrastructure provisioning speed is being accelerated. The next challenge now being exposed is the lack of agility in delivering Data into non-production environments.
Development and Testing require the availability of relevant data in the production-like Dev and Test environments on demand, to ensure rapid testing and validation of each Build. Data is however difficult to provision and deliver on demand. This results in Data Friction being the impediment to true ‘flow’ through application delivery pipelines. Other than the inherent cost and time it takes to provision and store data instances, there is also the risk that exponentially increases as more and more instances of Data are provisioned in multiple non-production environments.
As Dev-Test teams deliver faster and leverage more environments across parallel development streams, the number of non-production Data instances is typically several orders of magnitude higher than Production instances, increasing the exposed surface area. The ask hence is to be able to provision and deliver production-like Data instances, on-demand, as, when and where Dev-test practitioners need them in non-prod environments, while securing the Data at the same time.
In this session Sanjeev Sharma, VP and Global Practice Director for Data Modernization will discuss practices large enterprises need to adopt, across Process, Technology and People in order to be able to Provision, Deploy, Manage, Govern, and Secure Data in Application Delivery Pipelines, addressing Data Friction and Data Security challenges that may be impeding DevSecOps adoption.
