Maximize the Impact of Your DevOps Strategy
Many business have embarked on a digital transformation journey, which includes implementing a DevOps plan. However, many of these organizations still fail to reap rewards from these efforts. That’s because they are looking at DevOps as an automation strategy only. They haven’t completely embraced the spirit of DevOps, which requires changes to culture and organization in order to improve business capability and deliver more customer value. In this presentation, Forrester will present findings from our research to inform businesses how to maximize the benefits of their DevOps strategy and, ultimately, make customers happier.

Secure and Manage DevOps Secrets in Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery without Disrupting Flow or Velocity
Jenkins is a step forward in developer and operational productivity, but there’s a lack of best practices and workflows for running Jenkins securely in an enterprise setting. In building out our own continuous integration/continuous delivery pipelines, we've learned a couple tricks to improve security, ease of use and developer happiness. Some of the security challenges surrounding continuous integration/continuous delivery pipelines are unmanaged secrets, master servers with too much privilege, duplicate secrets management functionality on different platforms and lack of audit and compliance visibility. This interactive workshop will cover the keys to achieving security at scale throughout your continuous integration/continuous delivery pipelines, including strong identity and role-based access control, truth for security policy and partitioning of security responsibilities. CyberArk Conjur meets these requirements and provides granular control over data access, powerful change controls and a clear audit of security activity. CyberArk Conjur is a free, open source security service that integrates with popular tools to secure secrets, provide machine identity based authorization and more. Conjur Enterprise is scalable enterprise product that extends the open source version to include many additional features. Open source is available at conjur.org or upgrade to Conjur Enterprise. Prerequisites: This tutorial uses the Conjur command-line interface, but you don’t need to be an expert. All the commands you need to run, and files you need to create, are spelled out in explicit detail. You may want to download all of the tutorial filesin advance. Here are the developer tools you’ll need: A terminal application. Hyper is a nice one. Docker CE. It’s available for Mac, Windows, and GNU/Linux: scroll down and select the package for your operating system. The jq JSON processor. Download from its website.

Track 3: Making the Impossible Possible: Transforming an Organization from Waterfall to Agile
In 2014, we had an established company, a long-tenured development staff working in an established technology. We had a slow time to market and minimal innovation. A change was needed to meet changing customer demands and to improve business performance. That change was an agile transformation that most in the world would think impossible. The transformation at Compuware, a 45 year old mainframe software vendor was not simple. We transformed Compuware’s development process from Waterfall to Agile in 90 days. From our experience, we have learned the importance of continuous learning and continuous improvement. After three years, we continue to evolve our agile practices. We have seen an increase in code output, a decrease in escaped defects and an increase in customer involvement in the development process. We’ve learned how to celebrate success AND failure. Recognizing, reflecting and sharing mistakes has helped us learn and grow. We also identified how to measure what success looks like in an Agile and DevOps environment. Come share in our experience. Learn how we did it, how we measure it, the benefits we received and what we continue to do to improve. Learn from our journey to help make yours smoother. Your DevOps system delivery toolchain may be missing a critical component: the mainframe. In this workshop, you’ll learn how a mainframe-inclusive DevOps toolchain will improve the quality and agility of your business software, while at the same time reduce costs. In the live demo, you’ll see how advanced mainframe technology like the Compuware Topaz development and testing suite and Compuware ISPW integrate with DevOps tools like Jenkins and SonarQube to enable the next generation of mainframe developers with modern, intuitive interfaces.

Track 3: Binary Artifact Management is Crucial in Any DevOps Implementation
Binary artifact management is a critical component for automating DevOps CI/CD pipeline. As automation accelerate software release delivery from months or longer down to possibly hours, it becomes even more critical to control the quality, security and license of third party binary artifacts of unknown origins. Incorporating third party libraries is a necessity in modern day software development. Even the simplest "Hello World" example often includes dozens of third-party artifacts. A more practical system often includes hundreds or thousands of artifacts of unknown origin even if the system was built by well-known developers with good intentions. Accelerating the DevOps release cycle does not negate the proven processes for quality and security controls. In fact, the quality assurance and security teams gain greater visibility into the composition of the system under development through binary artifact management. The Jenkins Artifactory plugin for example enables uploading the full build information, artifact and its dependencies. The quality assurance team can update the build metadata to designate pass or fail status. The security team can enforce standards by restricting introduction of unsafe third-party artifacts with known vulnerabilities. The promotion pipeline can trigger upon meeting all quality and security standards. DevOps requires organizational adoption and willingness to transform repetitive tasks into pipeline automation. Regardless of the release cycle speed, the responsibility and standards control remain vested within the appropriate institutions. Traditional cross-domain collaboration remains relevant and possibly even more critical as the speed accelerates toward full DevOps automation. Therefore, this workshop encourages collaboration by forming lab groups with individuals serving different organizational roles. Each group will define and automate the promotion process using Jenkins Pipeline and Artifactory release repository. This workshop involves hands-on exercise using the following: 1. Binary artifact management of JFrog Artifactory 2. Jenkins Artifactory plugin 3. Build artifact deployment and dependencies 4. Build promotion using Jenkins Pipeline 5. Packaging as a Docker container with artifact traceability 6. JFrog Xray scan of Docker image and its underlying components The lab will utilize a cloud hosted server having Jenkins, JFrog Artifactory and JFrog Xray preinstalled. Template pipeline scripts illustrate the full integration between Jenkins and Artifactory. Each group will be given a separate sandbox server with administrative access to review and improve upon the pipeline script to best fit your organizational promotion process.

Secure and Manage DevOps Secrets in Your CI/CD without Disrupting Flow or Velocity
Jenkins is a step forward in developer and operational productivity, but there’s a lack of best practices and workflows for running Jenkins securely in an enterprise setting. In building out our own CI/CD pipeline, we've learned a couple tricks to improve security, ease of use, and developer happiness. Some of the security challenges surrounding CI/CD pipelines are unmanaged secrets, master servers with too much privilege, duplicate secrets management functionality on different platforms, and lack of audit and compliance visibility. This interactive workshop will cover the keys to achieving security at scale throughout your CI/CD pipeline including strong identity and role-based access control; truth for security policy; and partitioning of security responsibilities. CyberArk Conjur meets these requirements and provides granular control over data access, powerful change controls and a clear audit of security activity. CyberArk Conjur is a free open source security service that integrates with popular tools to secure secrets, provide machine identity based authorization, and more. Conjur Enterprise is a scalable enterprise product that extends the open source version to include many additional features. Open source is available at conjur.org or upgrade to Conjur Enterprise at cyberark.com/get-conjur-enterprise/.
