DevOps is now the most prevalent software development methodology in use. Since 2009, it has spread beyond development teams into other functional areas. One of the earlier DevOps extensions was into DevTestOps, which emphasized continuous testing throughout the software development lifecycle. This was followed several years later by the emergence of QAOps, which built on that model with a focus on improved quality assurance (QA). At first glance, these terms refer to the same methodology. But when you dig deeper, QAOps represents a significant departure from the purpose and process of DevOps. Let's explore.

In today's tumultuous computing landscape, the DBMS (database management system) remains core and central to the IT infrastructure. And, as such, it is central to the applications used by modern organizations to conduct business and service their customers. So, it stands to reason that a core competency for a DBA is to be able to keep their organization's databases up and operational. This requires resilience.

Data modeling has always had a push-me/pull-you relationship in the IT world. The idea of complete logical and physical data models, insightful definitions, coherent data flow diagrams, and other related informational caches is always desirable. However, far too often, the expectation is that these activities take virtually no time to create. When the expenditure of resources goes beyond a certain level, the activities are jettisoned or otherwise given the short shrift. Actually, getting code in place is viewed as the only evidence of true progress.

Most times, if asked, I will rattle off, without hesitation, a list of ways AI is being applied along with all the ways it can go wrong. You may also get bit of a diatribe about why speaking of AI in the royal sense (i.e., "the AI") is always a bad idea. It's practically a (bad) party trick. Yet recently, when asked to characterize the primary ethical issues in AI, I had a perfect moment of mental blankness. It was an uncomfortable and instructive moment on many fronts.

AI has become pervasive across enterprises, and the drive is now on to push this potentially powerful intelligence out to the edge and network, where it can deliver insight and operational performance in real time. These days, no discussion of edge and IoT is complete without weighing the implications of AI. "If people think AI will stop at data centers, they have an unfortunate blind spot, because AI is likely to be deployed in some form at the edge," said Kevin Brown, SVP at Schnei­der Electric. "In my opinion, it will bring with it a host of new challenges regard­ing data privacy concerns, an increasing demand for power, and an infrastructure that will be even more broadly distrib­uted. Undoubtedly, we need to get ahead of these challenges."

A first and important step in being successful at almost any job or task is understanding oneself. This is true for engineers, modelers, or even architects. Do you know how to perform your tasks? Are you faster or slower than others doing the same tasks? Do you have more or less errors in your output than others? It seems that a rising number of people are so uncomfortable with competing that they may even avoid asking these kinds of questions of themselves; but this is not about competition, it is about understanding oneself, it is about being responsible, it is about holding oneself accountable.
