Automation within enterprise IT is not a new topic. Whether it’s automating the creation of a user desktop or a server, the drive has always been to automate as much as possible to achieve faster time to market and efficiency. What has changed, though, is the number of infrastructure elements one can automate within an IT org. I still remember my first job in college 15 years ago where I used a variety of tools to automatically deploy and configure Windows XP simultaneously across 50 desktop machines for a classroom lab environment. Today not only can we automate desktop computer deployments but also servers, applications, and even networking.

Are you still coding your API client libraries by hand? Is your manually maintained API documentation drifting away from what was actually implemented? You may be interested in reviewing the two popular technologies that solve this problem. In this article, we are going to look at OpenAPI and gRPC side-by-side.

Security technical implementation guides (STIGs) provide a standardized set of security protocols for practically any system. From networks to servers and computers, STIGs are designed to enhance overall security and reduce vulnerabilities. But what happens when the guidelines vary across an enterprise? How do you apply these to a specific product without breaking it? Challenge accepted.

Digital transformation is not only changing the way businesses operate, but how they approach learning as well. Digital change has made continuous learning more important, putting pressure on employers to stay focused on employee learning or risk falling behind. But at the same time, digital transformation has made learning much more accessible. There is more training available online, on-demand than ever before. In today’s digital world, much can be learned without ever stepping foot into a traditional classroom.

Monitoring of application environments is very important, and there are many kinds of monitoring to consider – infrastructure capacity and availability, as well as application responsiveness and availability to name a few. This is also true in a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment, such as one running the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. The use of containers mean that applications can be built as an immutable image that is deployed and promoted to multiple hosting environments at a rapid pace. This makes monitoring more complex, and the need for dynamic adaptation to the running environment is key to success. But what is the best way to deploy and manage the monitoring solution itself, which in many cases is also running fully or partially within containers? This is where Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) comes in a useful approach. First, let’s define IaC.
