Tech News InteNS1ve provides a rundown of this week's news about IT modernization, tech adoption, and industry trends.

Platform Trends

Enterprises are increasingly turning to a platform-based approach to manage their IT infrastructure. In a recent article for Forbes, Janakiram MSV outlines how the service mesh is a key part of this approach in Service Mesh - The New Battleground for the Platform Wars.

To manage their growing infrastructure, some companies are now building platform engineering teams - separate from DevOps and the rest of the IT team. Tom Merritt provides details on platform engineering in his article for TechRepublic, 5 Things to Know About Platform Engineering.

Cloud Computing

The addition of platform engineering hires isn’t the only change to your IT team. Roberto Torres of CIO Dive provides insight into how cloud leaders are finding employees with the necessary cloud management skills in Cloud leaders grapple with lack of internal skills, survey says.

It’s crucial for companies to address this skills gap, as managing the cloud at scale is becoming increasingly complex. Zachary Flower addresses some of the top cloud management challenges in Top 6 complexity challenges of operating a cloud at scale in TechTarget.

IT Teams and Remote Work

When companies switched to fully remote work earlier this year, software development teams were more prepared than most, but also under increasing pressure to meet new technology demands. Veronica Haggar reports on a recent survey from Accelerated Strategies Group outlining remote work and software development trends - check out her DevOps.com article, New ASG Report Looks at COVID-19’s Impact on Software Development.

A recent survey from IDG and BigPanda found that IT operations teams are under increasing strain due to the switch to fully remote work. Brandon Vigliarolo outlines key findings from the survey in the article IT is plagued by outages, and messy environments make mitigation difficult for TechRepublic.

Security Issues

Rising cybersecurity threats are only adding to the complexity of switching to a fully remote workforce. To address this, companies are turning to Identity and access management software. Tom Allen provides details on how cloud-first vendors are leading the trend in his article for Computing, How has the global pandemic changed identity management.

SASE security model is another way companies are mitigating security risks. Danny Bradbury provides some advice on how to implement SASE in his article for Infosecurity Magazine, SASE Sounds Seductive but Takeup Will Take Time.
