What is DevOps and how does it help organizations? #Infographic #DevOps

There is a lot of confusion on what DevOps actually is. Many consider it as a gradual change in processes while other consider it as a change in methodologies or IT tools. To us, it is nothing but an organized cultural transformation that every business must adopt to become a high performing company.

DevOps is a term that collated two emerging trends. One is the adoption of agile or lean approaches for development and delivery. Companies have adopted “agile operations” at their core to ensure continuous and flawless development. However, the pressure to deliver products on a continuous basis gave rise to another trend that mixes development with operations. This is what DevOps is. We can see that DevOps is just a way in which companies need to operate.

Given the pressure to deliver high-quality code faster with less time available for quality assurance, DevOps attempts to streamline the process and set guidelines on how different teams should interact with each other and ensures a right quality product is delivered on right times. This speaks of how DevOps is a cultural change, however without support from appropriate tools and technologies it is just a vague concept. To make life easier, I have summarized the life cycle of DevOps in the form of an infographic.

Ecommerce Marketing Trends To Watch Out for in 2017 #Infographic #eCommerce

We are well into 2017, and the e-commerce industry is riding on the wave of new trends and technologies. Consumers have embraced the ways of shopping online through their mobiles, and the retailers are also providing the most interactive experiences to them. According to Conversion Fanatics, customers spend 44% of retail Internet minutes on their mobile phones and 11% on their tablets.

It’s high time that the marketers stop thinking “mobile users” and “desktop users” as being different. This is because an average household has 7.4 internet connected devices. It means that the person who is a ‘mobile user’ one minute, becomes the ‘desktop user’ the next one.

So why not have a UX design enticing enough for the mobile users not to switch their devices? The e-commerce marketing world is going through these and many more such changes. This infographic from Biztech Consultancy will give you further insights on the latest ecommerce marketing trends.

European Developers’ salaries in 2016 #Infographic #SoftwareDevelopment

Nowadays, the profession of a developer is considered to be listed among the best-paid jobs. Many young people chose this subject at college and got their degrees. Moreover, more and more people would like to shift their current job to software engineering. And there is nothing strange about that. Just look at the numbers we have gathered for you in an infographic, which sums up the state of software development in the last year.

The survey, which was done by O’Reilly team, shows that most used technologies were Javascript, Python, HTML, CSS, Java and Bash. At the same time, Java alongside PHP and C/C++, were still used by developers, however not so frequently as before. At the same time, StackOverflow website provides us with the information that the top paid technologies last year were F#, Dart, Spark, Hadoop, Clojure, Cassandra, Scala, Redis, Go, Salesforce, Cloud (AWS, Azure, GAE, etc.).

According to statistics, the top industries (where the programmers earned the highest salaries) were software development and IT consulting. And, at the same time, the largest number of companies on the market is around 20 or more years old. The respondents who took part in the survey are in their thirties and forties and have more than five years of experience in their job.

If you are a developer, you can get the highest salary in Japan, Switzerland and the USA. At the same time, your salary will be higher if you are located in Northern and Western Europe than in the Eastern side. You can have even more money if you are fond of cloud-related technologies and use such languages as Swift, Scala, Go or Python.

State of Disaster Recovery #Infographic #Disaster #Technology

Have you ever wondered what happens to critical data for banks, apps, hospitals, schools or any other business when their physical servers are affected by natural disasters, fire, or hackers?

There is a whole industry dedicated to saving the world’s data from destruction. It is called Disaster Recovery. Using the cloud and other digital media storage, disaster recovery professionals create plans for what to do when the inevitable happens: their company’s sensitive data is threatened.

Get a sneak peek into the lives of Disaster Recovery (DR) professionals with this infographic. Almost 400 industry professionals were surveyed about the role of DR technology in their company. Two-thirds of these professionals say that just having their data center down for 8 hours would cost them more than $20,000 a day. 75% of those surveyed have experienced a power outage that cost their company money.

In a world of sensitive data that needs immediate availability, disaster recovery is one of the fastest changing and most in-demand skillsets in all of IT.

AngularJS or ReactJS: Who will Win the Race? #Infographic #Technology

Are you planning a new project and thinking of which front end web technology to use? Well, AngularJS and ReactJS are currently the most prominent technologies that developers mostly prefer. Both have some unique, crisp features that make them stand apart from each other.

Developed by Google, AngularJS is a web application framework that uses JavaScript/HTML for building dynamic apps. It performs only on the client-side and has a Regular DOM (Document Object Model), meaning the components are bulky and somewhat distorted. But over the years, it has become a comprehensive framework with a fairly large community on GitHub.

On the other hand, ReactJS, developed by Facebook, is a JavaScript library that uses JSX, an HTML-like syntax for building interactive user interfaces. It renders on both the client and server sides and has a Virtual DOM i.e.; it is light-weight and more organized. But, React follows one-way data binding process, which means any change in the model will not be updated in the view and vice versa.

This is just an overview of some of the traits of AngularJS and ReactJS. To get a clear idea about both, see this infographic from Cabot Technology Solutions given below.
