Cloud Migration Assurance - COTS Migration Challenges

With fierce competition from enterprises and increased cloud adoption across the industries, it's past time to rethink the COTS portfolio approach to future-proof the growing business needs while lowering overheads. COTS apps, on the other hand, have their own set of issues when it comes to cloud migration. A standard R path analysis will not suffice to define the COTS cloud adoption journey, says Deepak Vijayaragavan, Vice President, Delivery, Cigniti Technologies.

Demystifying the Data Governance Framework

Data governance is a set of rules, processes, role delegations, and responsibilities that clearly define data quality, accessibility, data security, and regulatory compliance for an organization’s enterprise data management. You are most probably already applying some sort of a data governance program - setting up rules for the management of data and acceptable use of data assets.

API monetization: Technical best practices

Jason Cumberland, CPO and co-founder of API and data monetization platform HyperCurrent, contributed to this post. In our last article on how to get started with API monetization, we laid out how to build your API monetization strategy and avoid common pitfalls that occur when trying to get to your first minimum viable product release.

Local Tests With Selenium And Python Browser Automation

There are various reasons for running Python browser automation tests locally, the most common one for us is saving time. Loadero test runs usually take no more than 5 minutes to initialize and start execution but can reach up to 10 minutes or more depending on how busy is the test run queue. To increase the speed of development, it’s often quicker to create the test script on your local machine and then run tests on Loadero.

How to Plug an Existing User Store into WSO2 Identity Server?

Are you someone who already has a legacy system in place and wants to migrate to a modern authentication system with Identity and Access Management (IAM) features? The first thing you need to consider is how you can use the existing legacy user store with this new system. Keep in mind that if the legacy user store uses an old security mechanism to store your data, we would recommend that you migrate to the WSO2 JDBC user store format or Active Directory (AD).

How to establish data excellence

There is no operational excellence without data excellence, and to ensure you are using this valued asset properly, a data governance framework must be part of your strategy. For organizations to meet their business objectives on a continuous basis, it is critical to maintain data quality and trust. Data quality — and by extension, data health — is not a “one and done” exercise; data is always changing and growing. Because data health is an ongoing process, tracking that health over time can expose hard-to-spot issues like data drift and can help organizations quantify the ongoing impact of data quality interventions.

Continuous Performance Testing in CI Pipelines: CircleCI

With over 50,000 active organizations and 250 million workflows, CircleCI is one of the most popular networked CI platforms. When getting started with CI pipelines, teams typically want to ensure that code will compile, pass unit tests, and build a container image. After catching these low hanging fruit of syntax errors, engineering teams need to dig much further to find business logic and scalability errors.
