Over the last few months, I have had a number of opportunities to meet with technology professionals to discuss emerging DevOps best practices. Very often I meet people who tell me that they are in charge of DevOps. These discussions usually focus on scripting automated application build, package and deployment as well as building and provisioning servers using deployment frameworks such as Puppet or Chef. DevOps is taking the industry by storm and I see many firms embracing DevOps.

The recent incident involving Target's point of sale machines has provided an interesting view into the way that many people view this problem. Some of the articles focused on the issue of having secure chips in credit cards and other articles seem to indicate that the problem was that the virus protection software did not identify the malware on the point of sale machines.

As 2013 comes to a close, I enjoyed reviewing some of the more interesting glitches that impacted major systems from the Obamacare healthcare.gov website to large scale financial systems, including banks and trading firms in my monthly Behaviorally Speaking column.

Recently, my GPS device starting prompting me to update the maps which were over a year old. Obviously, roads change so this seemed perfectly reasonable. I am very dependant upon my GPS and literally cannot drive my car without the voice that consistently guides me to turn right or left depending upon where I need to go. These days, it seems like almost every device or appliance that I use requires constant updates via the internet. The problem is that many of the companies who manufacture these devices do not seem to know enough about configuration management.
