Q&A with Read It Quik Editor Meghna Lal

June 22, 2017 Flint Brenton

I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by readitquik.com editor Meghna Lal. We discussed several topics including my background and what led me here to CollabNet, our company’s role in the DevOps market, and where the industry is headed. We also covered important trends and technologies worth watching.

We covered how today’s software-driven world is driving DevOps to be explored at the executive level. IT challenges have become business challenges and organizations know now that in order to succeed they must deliver better quality applications at a faster speed. And that is our sweet spot.

You can read the full Q&A, and here’s is Meghna’s  introduction to get you started:

“The rapid increase in the number of available software interfaces that businesses deploy today has also increased the need for agile and quick software development. And developers are turning to DevOps to address business needs—industry reports indicate a strong preference to adopt DevOps in order to speed up deployment times, cut costs associated with application process delivery, and reduce costs and time spent on testing new applications.

Enterprise software development firm CollabNet recently published insights into software delivery trends for 2017 based on a Q&A series with DevOps industry analysts. One of the key themes that emerged in a number of analyst responses was the importance of looking at DevOps lifecycle tools and taking steps in 2017 and beyond to ensure those tools integrate and work together. Experts also acknowledged the need for a platform to control or manage these tools and processes easily.

RIQ talks to CollabNet CEO Flint Brenton on the idea of DevOps, how organizations are embracing it and the challenges they face. Prior to joining CollabNet, Flint held leadership positions at a number of companies, including AccelOps, Tidal Software, NetIQ, Compaq Computer Corporation, BMC Software, and IBM. In his own words, he is passionate about helping organizations accelerate their growth and innovate to be market leaders.  … Read more on readitquik.com.”
