DevOps: Ignore at Your Own Peril

DevOps is now being frequently linked with enterprise’s profitability and market capitalization. But can the DevOps live up to the expectations? How companies are reacting to the new paradigm? Organizations around the world are beginning to realise that there is a lot to be achieved when development and operations teams collaborate. It is a new cultural change that brings customers and businesses together.

When it comes to code deployment and lead time, DevOps teams are witnessing a high level of success. There has been instances where companies that adopted DevOps has been able to reduce the lead time from months to week. The popularity of agile methodology and cloud adoption are fuelling the growth of DevOps. The areas where the companies stand to gain most are

Deployment Frequency :

According to a study, companies that are following DevOps practices the longest were shipping code up to 30 times faster — and completing deployments up to 8,000 times faster.

Speed of Deployment :

In an IT survey, more than 25% of the companies reported that their teams were able to accelerate time-to-deployment to less than a day. Some Fortune 500 companies have reported that they are now able to move code from developer’s machine to production within hours.

Failure Rate :

A few companies have reported 50% fewer failures from code changes. One of the leading multi-national in the US reported just 0.001% outages from deployment.

Recovery from Failed Deployment :

Almost 75% of the respondents were able to restore service in less than an hour and about 28% were able to restore services within few minutes.

So, whether your company is releasing codes frequently for production or not, DevOps can still be used. Even companies that don’t have frequent releases, are experiencing huge reduction in the cost. Though development, integration, testing, and deployment are key for any software development, the idea behind DevOps is to automate the entire process in order to deliver value to the end user. Recent studies and surveys reveal that there’s a compelling business case for DevOps, with a typical the return on investment (ROI) ranging from about 10 to 100 times.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV and AX: How Do They Compare?

Microsoft Dynamics AX Vs NAVMicrosoft Dynamics offers a range of integrated, adaptable business management solutions that enables organisations to take decisions with confidence. Microsoft Dynamics’ ERP offerings are aimed at automating and streamlining financial, customer relationship and supply chain processes of your organisations.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions empower people to anticipate and embrace change so that business can innovate and grow. It increases the efficiency of the organisation by making the critical business information available for the right people at the right time.

While ERPs can bring about a huge change in how your business is run, an ideal ERP should be simple use and also provide the agility you need to expand business. Choosing the right solution is very crucial for any organisation as ERP implementations are not only risky and complex, the perceived failure rates are also very high.

A research done by Gartner points out that “an estimated 20% to 25% of ERP projects fail outright (late and/or over budget, failed to deliver any benefits, or abandoned). A further 50% to 60% are perceived as having failed because they are considered compromised by the organization in some way.

Though Microsoft Dynamics offers a wide range of ERPs catering to various business needs, Microsoft Dynamics NAV and Microsoft Dynamics AX are more popular and choosing between them requires good understanding about the business needs and goals.

Both Dynamics NAV and Dynamics AX are highly customizable, flexible and offer high scalability for the businesses that are operating from one centralized or multiple decentralized locations.

The primary aim of this article is to shed some light on how both the applications differ from each other in terms of functionality and technology. This ready reckoner can be a good starting point to understand how these robust applications can solve your business problems.

ETL on Cloud Gaining Significance

A survey carried out by an US-based data integration company involving 200 business intelligence professionals finds that 51 percent of them are ‘strongly considering’ moving all ETL processes to the cloud.

While many organizations are still relying heavily on existing on-premise IT for ETL, the desire to shift to a more cloud-based model is growing stronger.

Cloud ETL offers a host of benefits over on-premise, from increased agility in resource deployment to reduced costs. As such, the cloud is an increasingly attractive option from both a performance and operational perspective.

Big data analytics solutions

Biggest Challenges :

The study also reveals that the biggest challenges were in making data ready for analysis.

Over 55% say integrating data from different platforms, followed by transforming, cleansing and formatting incoming data (39%), integrating relational and non-relational data (32%), and the sheer volume of data that needs to be managed (21%) at any given time.

As a business manager you should be more concerned about the information rather than making the data ready for analysis. To know how Karya can drastically reduce your data burden, please mail us at

While Extract-Transform-Load (ETL) technology allows for a seamless integration of information from various sources, it has its own set of challenges when it involves cloud. The biggest part of the challenge is ‘security’.

It would be more pertinent to ask where should the ETL tool sit in relation to the data warehouse. Just like how the data can reside onsite (on-premise) or in the cloud, ETL tool can also reside onsite or in the cloud. Irrespective of the fact where it is located, it has to work well with the Business Intelligence platform, which again may exist onsite or in the cloud.

Assuming the data warehouse, BI and ETL are all deployed and floating, then the ETL tool would also exist as a cloud service.

Security in the cloud

Though the job of securing the data may not be the responsibility of the business that uses the cloud service, the link from database to database over IP may pose some worry. We definitely need to secure the most sensitive data using the best encryption methods.

ETL tools are not built to scale. The right tool depends entirely on the infrastructure that’s using it. ETL also involves a great deal of network sophistication. When the complexity of the enterprise BI increases, the ETL tool has to quickly scale up to meet the requirements of the organization.

A weak ETL tool or a bad setup can wreak havoc on consistency and reliability of extracted and loaded data. Once again, if the ETL is hosted in the cloud, there are certain complexities and issues that come along with it. ETL tools, depending on their engines, can handle both small and big data. Choosing the ‘right’ service provider for implementing ETL securely into your process would be the first step for any organization. With an experienced systems implementation partner like Karya, which follows safe and secure practices, you can be rest assured.
