We see environments provisioning, however, as an important yet secondary process. We sometimes neglect development and test environments. Learn more about what SDLC and software provisioning are from Dawid Ziolkowski on Plutora’s blog. 

ZeroTrustOps: Securing at Scale

And its core values are to be open, innovative, global, and to have integrity. Find out more about OWASP from Erik Dietrich on Sonatype’s blog. 

Software systems have only ever grown in complexity. New trends such as microservices, distributed systems, and containerization have popped up. In addition, there is an increasing need for connectivity between systems. All of these technological improvements are great for the end user.

Which is where observability and controllability come into play. Learn more from Michiel Mulders on Scalyr’s blog.
