Episode 29: The Hybrid Cloud Forecast Series – Outlook: DevSecOps
In this episode of the Hybrid Cloud Forecast series, Andre talks with Rosalind Radcliffe, IBM Fellow, CIO DevSecOps CTO, where she is currently working on transforming z/OS into a modern platform with DevSecOps as a showcase for Hybrid Cloud, demonstrating to the world how Hybrid Cloud can work for enterprises. She emphasizes fit-for-purpose by running workloads where it makes the most sense in the Hybrid Cloud environment for business value. They discuss how siloed mainframe and distributed computing organizations today can use the same development processes, with many of the pipelines and toolchains being ported to z/OS. Andre and Rosalind discuss how DevOps has evolved into DevSecOps using automation to help simplify security challenges. She talks about the challenges of running the CIO organization for IBM, of being IBM’s client “zero”, with 6000 developers that build, run, and maintain all of the applications for running IBM. She is currently working on transforming z/OS to be infrastructure-as-code based to simplify management processes with application pipelines that are very highly efficient, with zero trust, no system programmers, all done through automation.
