Puppet CEO: We must scale automation for business

“Unfortunately, neither you nor us can rest on our past laurels. Technology and business is moving at an incredible clip. The pressure is on. Every company is being forced, whether they like it or not, to become a software company.”

Puppet CEO Sanjay Mirchandani shared those observations in his PuppetConf 2017 keynote address. And while his opening greeting, “You’re here today because you believe in automation,” hinted at Puppet’s solution for companies feeling the pressure, Sanjay later explained that mere automation for business simply isn’t enough. It needs to be ubiquitous.

“I think the world is ready and needs a way that allows us to scale the success in a prescriptive, predictive and repeatable way.”

According to Sanjay, that means the world is ready for what he calls “the journey to pervasive automation.”

Helping Puppet customers on that journey are these major products announced at the show:

  • Puppet Discover, which offers visibility into hybrid infrastructure for easier and more effective management
  • Puppet Tasks, which simplifies automation for business across infrastructure
  • Puppet Pipelines for Apps, Pipelines for Containers, and Puppet Container Registry, all spun out from its Distelli CI/CD platform acquisition.
Sanjay Mirchandani, CEO, PuppetSanjay Mirchandani

But that’s not all. Pervasive automation, apart from a catchy phrase, is a guiding principle for Puppet’s view of how the enterprise can best deal with the pressure and scale automation for business. Three elements fasten this principle — a tried and tested automation roadmap, leader accountability and the need to rally people.

“It’s not about doing it alone. I don’t want heroes. This is a team sport; this is an absolute team sport, here and with our community and partners, and with our customers. That’s the only way we’ll succeed.”

Diverse teams means good outcomes

Teams are made up of people, and as with anything DevOps, there’s a strong cultural component — both in IT and the traditional sense.

Puppet was very keen on promoting its efforts to increase its internal diversity, including establishing a manager of diversity and inclusion, as well as making PuppetConf 2017 a welcoming show, complete with travel and lodging sponsorship for speakers and attendees from underrepresented and culturally focused user groups, and free conference tickets to organizations promoting diversity.

Diversity also makes good business sense, bringing with it practical benefits, as Nigel Kersten, Puppet’s chief technical strategist, explained in comments to DevOps Agenda.

“There’s actually pretty good research that shows that the more diverse your teams are that build products, the more diverse appeal your products have to the market.”

Citing the many studies and research supporting Kersten’s take, Puppet CTO Deepak Giridharagopal added, “I would consider it incontrovertible that literally in any type of study of any amount of rigor, it’s been almost universal that if you have a team that is comprised with more gender diversity, more racial diversity, and age stratification, they tend to be strongly correlated with better business outcomes.”

Teams of Tech Partners

At PuppetConf 2017, the team concept also extended to Puppet’s many partners. Puppet CEO Mirchandani claimed, “We talk with Nutanix and Google and Amazon, the list continues. These are deep integrations.”

Our mantra inside the company is, we don’t live alone. We’ve got to live in the ecosystems our customers are using today.
Sanjay MirchandaniPuppet CEO

“Our mantra inside the company is, we don’t live alone,” he added. “We’ve got to live in the ecosystems our customers are using today.”

Splunk is an example. It provides infrastructure monitoring and intelligence. Mirchandani described a world where Puppet enables seamless action on that intelligence. For example, Splunk alerts an Exchange Server crash at 4:00 a.m. and Puppet spins up a failsafe in lieu of an engineer who might otherwise get up and check in, or miss it altogether.

That’s discovery into action, which Mirchandani envisions will be integrated everywhere in that prescriptive, predictive and repeatable way, for sake of the business. But only time will tell if his vision and this ultimate promise to enterprise users bears out.

“It makes life easier on our customers, and that’s the journey to pervasive automation.”

Making the case for AI in software testing

Enterprise digital technology provider InfoStretch announced it will offer artificial intelligence in software testing through a brand-new service called Predictive and Prescriptive QA. It’s just another move among other new AI testing ventures. How will machine learning and AI fit into DevOps and continuous delivery?

Microsoft Azure announces new capabilities and partnerships at IBC 2017

Over the past months, we have aggressively added innovative new capabilities in Azure to enable content owners and partners to prepare, store, protect, distribute and monetize media in the cloud. We are thrilled to see media & cable organizations choosing Microsoft Azure for their digital transformation needs. Whether helping organizations move their focus away from infrastructure to content, distributing content with digital era velocity, or providing reliable and relevant content, Microsoft Azure is the trusted and global-scale cloud for the media industry’s needs.

Azure Media Services

In response to enthusiastic customer feedback, we have added the following new capabilities to Azure Media Services.

  • Democratizing AI for Media Industry: Video Indexer a powerful new capability which brings AI to life for media industry was introduced a few months back at BUILD 2017, as a unique integrated bundling of Microsoft’s cloud-based artificial intelligence and cognitive capabilities applied specifically for video content. Its brings capabilities like face detection, sentiment extraction, object dectection, audio transcripts and more. Enhancements to this service include support for Egyptian Arabic language for speech analysis, playback at multiple speeds, and many more.
    Azure Media Redactor is a powerful cloud video processing service leveraging word-class artificial intelligence, which is capable of automatically detecting and blurring faces in your videos, for use in cases such as public safety and news media. This is a new addition to the broad set of already existing capabilities of Azure Media Analytics.
  • HEVC Encoding support: The improved encoding efficiency of HEVC helps video service operators deliver higher resolution and higher quality video to their viewers, while saving on storage and CDN costs. Apple’s iOS11 release will support this codec, which will ensure a large addressable market for operators who adopt this codec. HEVC encoding is now generally available in Azure Media Services via the Premium Encoder. Further, HEVC encoding is priced the same as H.264 – we believe this to be critical to the success of our customers.

Azure CDN

The following new capabilities to optimize performance for media streaming and dynamic content were added since NAB for Azure CDN.

Media streaming optimized delivery With Azure CDN: We have added the ability to easily optimize the delivery of streaming media. With a single click, media streaming optimizations are automatically applied. This results in fast and efficient delivery of media assets to users and optimized requests to origins.

Dynamic content acceleration: Azure CDN now supports Dynamic Site Acceleration (DSA) to optimize the delivery of dynamically served content. When DSA is enabled the performance of web pages with dynamic content is significantly improved as a result of route/network optimizations, resource prefetching and smart image compression.

One Click Integration with Storage and Web Apps: Pursuant to our goals of simplifying & making CDN capability transparent to our users we have enabled “One Click” enablement for assets in Azure storage as well a simple on click enablement of CDN for Websites & Web apps built on Azure.

Azure Storage

Azure Storage has made substantial improvements in 2017 to address the needs of Media & Entertainment customers. This includes:

  • Azure Archive Blob Storage – Azure Archive Blob storage is designed to provide Media organizations with a low cost means of delivering durable, highly available, secure cloud storage for rarely accessed data with flexible latency requirements. This is in addition to the existing Hot & Cool tiers which provide instantaneous high throughput object storage.
  • Blob-Level Tiering – To simplify data lifecycle management, we now allow customers to tier their data at the blob level.  Customers can easily change the access tier of a blob among the Hot, Cool, or Archive tiers as usage patterns change, without having to move data between accounts. Blobs in all three access tiers can co-exist within the same account.
  • Larger Object Sizes – Azure Blob Storage now supports up to 5TB objects to address the needs of 4K and 8K media.
  • Higher performance – Azure Blob Storage now supports significantly higher throughput for object reads, up to gigabytes per second for a single object to support post production, transcoding and other workloads. Write throughput has also improved to support large media ingestion including Media Archival.
  • Encryption at rest (including customer managed keys)– Azure Blob Storage has support for Encryption at rest to meet the security needs of our media customers. Azure is the only public cloud compliant with the MPAA certification. This summer, we launched a preview for customer managed keys, which allows customers to further enhance security by encrypting the data with their own keys.

Growing Partner Ecosystem

At IBC this year, we are excited to announce that our partner ecosystem is growing at a rapid pace, enabling our customers with solutions that span the length and breadth of digital workflows.

Earlier this year, we announced that Avid has selected Microsoft Azure as their preferred partner to power their business in the cloud. Visitors to the Microsoft booth at IBC can see a demonstration showcasing an integrated Microsoft Azure and Avid offering.

In late July, it was announced that Ooyala’s Flex platform, which runs on Microsoft Azure, will now be utilized by Zone TV for its end-to-end workflow needs. Also, other notable customers who are driving value from Ooyala’s solution are National Rugby League (NRL), SiriusXM and Zoomin.TV (Netherlands). We are pleased to announce that visitors to Hall 15 at IBC can also see a joint demo between Ooyala’s Flex and Azure Media Services.

We are also pleased to announce our new partners – Amagi and axle Video. Amagi, which provides cloud-managed broadcast services and targeted advertising solutions, announced that their CLOUDPORT product, a cloud playout platform, can now be deployed on Microsoft Azure. axle Video, which provides Media Management solution, announced a deep integration with Microsoft Video Indexer to enhance their axle ai product.

We have also expanded the partnership with LiveArena as it launches LiveArena Broadcast Room, an end-to-end service allowing production and broadcast of Live and on-demand TV to any device, built entirely on Microsoft Azure.

Additionally, Levels Beyond, makers of Reach Engine, has announced the release of Reach Engine Media Services, which is built on Microsoft Azure and integrates with Microsoft Azure Storage. XenData, provider of high capacity data storage solutions, announced the launch of its managed hybrid cloud service by integrating with Microsoft Azure Storage.

Stay tuned for more Azure blog posts that will dive deeper into these announcements.

Microsoft Office Users Are Getting AI, But May Not Know It



Over the past few years, Microsoft has quietly added a number of artificial intelligence (AI) features to Office 365 , but my guess is that most Office users either don’t know these features exist, or just take them for granted.

At last year’s Ignite conference, I saw a number of new AI features, and among these were notable new features for PowerPoint and Outlook. But this year, many of those features have deepened and a variety of new tools have been added, some announced at the recent Inspire conference and others announced just this week.

Kirk Gregersen, who heads the program management team within Office, explained that the team’s goal is to add “intelligence into the product in a way that users don’t have to understand to benefit from [it].” This involves using a lot of information the company has in the form of its “knowledge graph”—all of the information you store in documents and email, including what some companies have agreed to share with Microsoft—as well as taking advantage of both the cloud and the AI experience. “Without the move to the cloud, we couldn’t be doing what we are doing,” Gregersen said, explaining that many of these concepts have been around since the 1980s or 90s, but that they weren’t possible without all the data that is now in the cloud.

Gregersen said the product team now works deeply with Microsoft Research, led by executive vice president of Artificial Intelligence & Research Harry Shum, in a way that it couldn’t have in the past. Gregersen referred to these new AI features as “gifts from Harry’s org” and said they have enabled scenarios the product teams have envisioned for years.

Some of the new features are fairly obvious, such as the “focused” inbox in Outlook, while others are less noticeable. (Note again that not every user has all these features yet. I’ll recap the update policies at the end of this post.)

Word Tackles Writing Style

In recent months, Word has added a variety of new proofing tools. The spelling and grammar features have been significantly enhanced, and they have a notably different look.

Among the changes are suggestions that are based in part by contextual ranking, and a “read aloud” feature, which is designed to help those with visual impairments.

Most obvious is the new “gold squiggle,” which suggests style changes within your documents. Each new monthly release adds more of these features, which range from general style critiques to helping you make sure you use more inclusive language, such as identifying gender-specific terms or terms that have different geopolitical meanings. Many of these are turned off by default at present, so users may not be aware they exist. (These settings are listed under File, Options, Proofing, Writing Style as shown in the graphic below). They are interesting and potentially quite useful tools.

Gregersen said this represents a use of AI wherein it takes something that was solely rules-based and adds context awareness. In the future, he said, it will be easier to see how this could be used in LinkedIn resumes, as well as become more personalized, so you could have it ignore certain style issues.

PowerPoint Turns Text into Presentations

Many of the most interesting features involve PowerPoint. Last year, Microsoft demonstrated a new option called Designer, in which PowerPoint can take a variety of slides you have and show you alternatives for different designs based on your content.

In new versions, Designer has improved how it does image analysis in the background, and this helps it to recognize salient regions of a photo, for things like facial recognition (so it doesn’t crop out faces), or extracting color to help determine the color tone for the rest of a presentation. In addition, the company is tracking which designs people choose, and using a ranking algorithm similar to that used by the Bing search engine to propose the most appropriate choices.

My favorite new feature involves taking the text you type and automatically turning it into a visual, or typing a number of steps in a process and turning that into a visual process flow. This was unveiled last year (under the name “SmartArts”), and the company has been updating it over time.

Similarly, another new feature turns a bulleted list with dates into a timeline, and it’s quite cool. It’s long been possible to create such visuals in PowerPoint, but it was time consuming and required a bit of artistic sensibility. This feature makes it much easier.

In addition, last year PowerPoint added a feature called Quick Start, aimed mostly at students, which, if you type in a topic, creates a basic outline of a presentation for you, using information and images from the web that are available under the Creative Commons license. This feature, too, has been enhanced.

Perhaps the flashiest new feature, however, is the ability to translate a presentation into another language in real-time. Presentation Translator was first demonstrated in the
