Software delivery pipelines are comprised of many different tools which are glued together using one or more orchestration platforms. The process from user story to code commits through testing (unit, functional, performance and integration), security audit, packaging and deployment, involves many different people and tools, and may even involve outsourced teams and SaaS or cloud-based tooling. With this complexity, how does an organization know that a change was approved and committed by a trusted developer? Who performed the code review and security audit? Were all the tests run in each of the environments as the change progressed from dev, through test in to staging and finally to production? Some proposed solutions require an organization to fully adopt a single vendor stack and keep all development within their walled garden. This approach is not flexible for modern application development, which often involves multiple technologies from different vendors. In this talk Jesse Stockall, CTO of Embotics, will describe an innovative, flexible software delivery process that uses the distributed transaction capabilities of blockchain to provide a trusted, auditable record of a change across the spectrum of tools, processes and people involved in making that change and delivering the value from it. Jesse will provide example integrations with common DevOps tools and provide insight on blockchain technologies available in the market today and explore key benefits organizations can expect to achieve from a distributed ledger using blockchain, such as greater use of distributed teams (including outsourcing) and multiple best-of-breed technologies and microservice-based architectures, while gaining the visibility, control and audit capabilities required.
