Cross the Streams
In Cross the Streams IT Performance Blog, IT Evangelist and Aussie Paul Muller questions conventional thinking and crosses the boundaries between information, technology and culture in this virtual walkabout.

Breaking down IT applications and operations silos returns AIG 5.7x their investment.

If you’re not aware of AIG, this in an enterprise that’s had to contend with change at a rapid pace at a massive scale, with hundreds of subsidiaries and business partners and eight lines of business (LOBs), each with its own divisional CIO. As they transformed they had to ensure application integrity while accelerating speed of responsiveness to change. All while being asked to contain or restrain costs.


I had the opportunity to speak with Abe Naguib, Senior Director of AIG’s Global Performance Architecture Group at HP Discover as well as during a longer podcast where we talked about what it takes to cross organisational boundaries and to deliver a return on that investment.

What a CIO should know about DevOps

The term DevOps has taken 3 years to become something of an overnight success. There are probably more myths and misunderstandings about it than there are hard facts. This is especially challenging if you’re a CIO or senior IT leader trying to make sense of whether it’s worth taking a look at.


To help cut through the noise, I sat down with Gene Kim and Patrick Debois, two of the DevOps movement’s most widely practiced individuals. We sat down to swap experiences and to discuss how a CIO should be thinking about DevOps.
