Welcome to part two of our blog series on change visualization and Peer Reviews (Click here to read part one). We’ll look at how peer reviews will help developers gain confidence in the release readiness of their work and be empowered to share best practices between peers.
With a focus on the developer experience in Dimensions CM 14, Serena believes that Peer Reviews can unlock the potential of team members to share their learning and encourage teamwork, without
DevOps is starting to attract mainstream attention, but there is still confusion about what DevOps is and what it takes to have a successful DevOps initiative. Some companies have tried to automate their way to DevOps success; many others are trying to stay true to the core DevOps CAMS (Culture, Automation, Measurement, Sharing) principles. Unfortunately, most information available is related more to web 2.0 companies than more complex enterprise environments.
These stories are starting to emerge with more enterprise-friendly content
I’ve just returned from the Gartner Data Center event in London, where Serena Software was a sponsor (booth pictured to the right). We showcased the newly announced Serena Release Manager v5 and talked with numerous companies in attendance.
In 2012, Gartner interviewed over 200 CIOs on the topic of DevOps and found that
Having spent many years of my career in both IT operations and application development, I’ve seen both sides of the problem. I remember quite vividly the late night weekend heroics onsite implementing a new release or being woken up at home on a failed release. I’ve also experienced the intense deadline pressure as a developer to deliver the new features that will help ensure that the business makes its quarterly number.

I’ll be heading to London next week for the Gartner Data Center Summit from November 25-26. Serena Software is a sponsor and we will showcase our soon-to-be-released Serena Release Manager v5.
In a 2012 Gartner DevOps survey of over 200 CIOs, release management was rated the number one issue. No surprise that our customers tell us pretty much the same thing; they need to improve visibility, reduce rework and errors
Two of the most highly anticipated areas of new development for Dimensions CM 14 are change visualization and peer reviews. Taken as individual new capability areas, these features represent a massive stride forward for our flagship SCCM solution. And when combined together, they will redefine the way Dimensions CM users think about parallel development and agile practices. In this two-part blog, we’ll talk about Change Visualization first and then follow up with a look at Peer Reviews.
Traditionally, Serena has excelled at providing control and insight into the
I’ve just spent an amazing week in London. I already had high hopes for this trip having been to DevOpsDays London earlier this year but I didn’t expect to be blown away by the events.
Attendees at both events were from all over Europe. I’m used to meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds at events in the USA but this was on a totally different scale.
As to be expected, culture and process were
Last week I was at DevOpsDays Portland. As expected, the open space topics were really interesting. Two in particular stood out for me. The first was about fitting DevOps into your organization. DevOps teams seemed to be the way people were going. If you have been to other events with prominent figures of the DevOps community present, you may have noticed how the mention of “DevOps teams” can spur heated
