THE FUTURE FOR CYBER SECURITY

A study entitled, State of Cyber Security 2017, performed by ISACA (Information Systems Audit and Control Association), suggested that cyber security staff are becoming increasingly difficult to find in such a rapidly expanding and evolving field. The report was based on a survey of 633 cyber security specialists across North America and Europe, with 27% stating that they were unable to fill open cyber security positions in their businesses and another 14% unsure as to whether they would ever fill those positions...

Top 25 European Rising Stars 2012 – Wercker

Top 25 European Rising Stars 2012 – Wercker

……..Deploy in Bits of Codes with Wercker?

Wercker is a Netherlands project that seeks to revolutionize the coding process. It is one of top five startups of 2012, according to a pollster, that have promise to define cloud applications in the future. The shortcoming of the site is its scanty homepage that operates on the beta code. Though it outlines the major gist of the company’s repertoire of code-acclimatization, the site has little or no press externally. Perhaps this is a bonus or even a prediction of how revolutionary the firm may become in the foreseeable future.

So what is the secret behind the deployment process by the Wercker tool using codes…?

The answer is that people see programming and associate it with servers to decode the information. With this code-editing tool, servers are not necessary, as the scripting/encoding process can happen in a cloud app-hosting ecosystem.

The startup seeks to streamline perpetual provisioning in the cloud especially for corporate sites. A scenario in point is where staff are undertaking the same IT task, but operating from diverse machines. This means that each is touching the code or scripting language that the company uses to deploy. This may alter programming and thus requires close attention when deploying the finished product from these diverse quarters. To facilitate this integral working, Wercker has introduced a tool that bridges the gap between all the disjointed ends of the code.

The site says that “we shouldn’t be concerned with managing servers,” implying that what matters is to get a tool that will be open source enough to encode information, disjointed as it is, and as it comes.

Remembering the fact that companies are factories of information, it is inevitable that various departments will work differently, each with its own developers, who apparently hit the same code, that of the company. Results will be disastrous in the long run, since some of the information in the private cloud will be illegible to some users. Were it that a single tool, that reads the momentary needs of the current project, bit by bit was in place, deployment would not lack orchestration as it does now.

Wercker blames the poor orchestration of projects on deficiency of master tools that can handle millions of apps, while at the same time adapting to the specific coding system of the entity. This is why Wercker is working with GitHub, a free coding system that enjoys some 1.5 million subscribers. Apparently, the system has enabled this rising startup to improve on the leverage potential of its deployment software. They are also working in cohort with Heroku, a hosting system that is audacious enough to provide a Platform as a Service (PaaS) framework for another 1.5 million apps. From these working models, Wercker gleans the fact that managing data equipment is not as necessary as making coding orchestrated.

Solutions from Wercker

Working in bits of a master code, rather than the whole stems the risks of getting entangled in a labyrinth of information conduit. Revisiting the smaller bits of codes, according to the experts leads to better provisioning outcome than when belaboring right, left and center on the same master script. They also come with a theory that to ensure integrity, it is important to subject these detached ends of codes with regular revisits, rechecking the system every so often. Most of all, the tools for doing this spotlight should be simple, open source and highly integral.

Thus, the secret weapon of Wercker is continuous deployment, employing odds and ends of codes, one at a time, but inexorably.

Modern coding systems like Mercurial and Git usually allow users to cross-check their sources and even alter faulty tributaries that emerge from the mother code. They do this through discussion forums like BitBucket, being the hosting environment. Perhaps Wercker may do the same for its customers now that it employs the GitHub for its provisioning work. It might also reach the same level of success as the aforementioned host which allows one to modify any alterations perpetually. It might be even worthwhile to dream that clients may meet with the same success as they do with Git when provisioning their applications to the huge depository that is Heroku.

Thus, Wercker as a coding tool, that advocates open source, bit by bit coding, qualifies as European Rising Star primarily for its visionary approach to the subject. One can read revolution in the air, especially now that the firm is already working with code-editing tools and seeks to create a niche of its own.
