IBM DevOps Insights Team Dynamics is Now Live

IBM DevOps Insights Team Dynamics is generally available

Team Dynamics provides qualitative answers to software delivery team leaders about how their teams are performing. If you’re a lead developer, you probably have a good idea about who are your strongest coders and who’s great at debugging. You may even have a feeling about who’d be a potentially strong mentor for those new to your team. You don’t have to rely on intuition, however, because there are already lots of key social cues buried in your code repository.

Team Dynamics employs social coding analysis to identify the level of interaction between team members so that the team can fix unproductive practices. You will see how your team interacts based on real data, not guesswork.

IBM DevOps Insights

General availability of IBM DevOps Insights, allowing software delivery teams to aggregate data from a variety of testing and code scanning tools to provide a comprehensive dashboard view of the risk profile of projects. Now, in addition to providing a single place for teams to access data about their projects,  IBM DevOps Insights Team Dynamics can help answer questions like:

  • Are team members comfortable changing each others’ code?
  • Are development responsibilities distributed equitably?
  • Who would be a good candidate mentor? Who could benefit from mentoring?
  • Are there signs that the project is at risk of being abandoned in the future?

With the help of the Social Coding graph in IBM Cloud DevOps Insights Team Dynamics, it’s easy to assess the dynamics of your software engineering team.

IBM Cloud Hyper Protect Crypto Services – Key Management Service [Update]

IBM Cloud Hyper Protect Crypto Services

IBM Cloud Hyper Protect Crypto Services offers highly regulated organizations a managed cryptographic service in the cloud. It provides dedicated control down to the root secret of the Hardware Security Module. The Hardware Security Modules are FIPS 140-2 level 4 certified. This accounts for reliable protection of your keys, certificates, and cryptographic operations.

As part of the IBM Hyper Protect family of services, it introduces protection even from privileged users. It comprises built-in high availability and scaling capabilities, which addresses always-on requirements of the digital enterprise.

With Keep Your Own Key, Hyper Protect Crypto Services assures that all your secrets are always kept under control of keys that you own.

Key management service

A key management service like IBM Key Protect manages the entire lifecycle of keys. This ranges from key creation through application use, key archival, and key destruction. It enforces separation of duties between data management and key management.

Company policies, industry best practices, and government regulations increasingly require data-at-rest encryption. Encryption key management is a fundamental requirement for data storage, management, and governance. IBM Key Protect helps clients secure their sensitive data from unauthorized access or inadvertent employee release while meeting compliance auditing standards. Learn more about Key Protect here.

Hyper Protect Crypto Services is a drop-in replacement for IBM Key Protect and exposes the same key management services. As a single-tenant service, it offers dedicated control of the Hardware Security Module per customer. It extends the family of key management services in the IBM Cloud towards single-tenant instances with dedicated hardware secret control.

  • Deprecation of Advanced Crypto Service Provider (ACSP) Remote Hardware Security Module Services.
    • Already deployed experimental instances will continue to work until further notice.
    • No further management of experimental instances (create, delete, manage).
    • Attention: Please keep in mind that no migration is supported for experimental services.
  • Temporary unavailability of Hardware Security Module services in the updated service until further notice.
