Disruption from Within: Driving Innovation at Franklin American with Docker EE

When you think of mortgage companies, you think of paperwork. You probably don’t think agile and responsive to customers. But Franklin American Mortgage wanted to disrupt that model. With their investments in innovation, microservices and Docker Enterprise Edition, they’ve been able to quickly create a platform to make technology core to their success. Don Bauer, the DevOps lead at Franklin American is part of an innovation team the mortgage company had established last year to challenge the status quo. Franklin American was doing amazing things and transforming their business — all with Docker Enterprise Edition as the foundation. Don presented at DockerCon 2018 along with Franklin American’s VP of Innovation, Sharon Frazier. They’ve been able to quickly build a DevOps culture around four pillars: Visibility, Simplification, Standardization and Experimentation. Experimentation is key. It lets them fail fast, and fearlessly. In Continue reading…

Docker and the Three Ways of DevOps Part 3: The Third Way – Culture of Continuous Experimentation and Learning

written by John Willis, Evangelist at Docker The Third Way of DevOps completes the full cycle. It has also been referred to as just “Continuous Learning”. In DevOps speak, we sometimes allude to the word Kaizen as a method of continuous improvement in an organization. This “Kaizen” being achieved through a culture of continuous experimentation and learning throughout all activities in an organization.

Docker and the Three Ways of DevOps Part 2: The Second Way – Amplify Feedback Loops

written by John Willis, Evangelist at Docker In the previous post in this series, we discussed patterns of applying DevOps principles in a way that yields high performance outcomes. In part two, we are going to discuss what is called “The Second Way”.  This second “way” is ultimately about amplifying and shortening feedback loops such that corrections can be made fast and continuously. This is sometimes referred to as the right to left flow. A defect is not a defect unless it hits the customer. Lean principles teach us that the earlier we can catch a potential downstream defect, the less costly it will be on the overall cost of the service delivery. Therefore the three V’s also apply in this “Second Way”. Velocity of a correction in the flow is essential. Variation also plays a role in the “Second Continue reading…

Docker and the Three Ways of DevOps Part 1: The First Way – Systems Thinking

written by John Willis, Evangelist at Docker Have you read Gene Kim’s The Phoenix Project? Some of the principles behind the Phoenix Project and an upcoming book I am co-authoring with Gene (The DevOps Cookbook) have been referred to as the “Three Ways of DevOps”. These are particular patterns of applying DevOps principles in a way that yields high performance outcomes.

Docker Selected as a Gartner Cool Vendor in DevOps

Docker is pleased to have been included in Gartner’s latest “Cool Vendors in DevOps, 2015“report, published April 21. In the report, Gartner notes: “As virtualization and cloud applications grow beyond being single images run on premise to being comprised of multiple tiers that can be run and scaled in a hybrid cloud, new approaches are needed to reduce complexity.” Docker is focused on reducing the complexities of building, shipping and running distributed applications, whether deployed on prem or in the cloud. We blieve our inclusion in the report reflects the progress that we’ve made over the last year to develop the tools and technologies that increase productivity for development and operations teams alike  – at every phase of the distributed application lifecycle.
