Too Many Updates!
In this podcast panel session, the speakers will discuss the challenges of the continuous and increasingly more frequent update cycles of 3rd party software. How can IT keep up with all the changes across the environment and what strategies can be employed to better manage this crucial aspect of living in the cloud.
Questions the moderator will ask the speakers:
-How do you balance the need for security patches with the potential disruption that updates can cause to ongoing operations?
-How do you ensure compliance with industry regulations when 3rd party software is continuously updating?
-What role do DevOps and CI/CD pipelines play in managing the frequent update cycles of 3rd party software in a cloud environment?
-How do you prioritize which 3rd party software updates to implement immediately versus those that can wait, especially when dealing with a large and complex IT environment?
-Can you discuss any real-world cases where a failure to update 3rd party software led to significant issues, and how those could have been avoided?
