DevOps is about sharing! Sharing is an important part of the success behind the Open Source development movement that has seen such an increase in the software industry for the past 10-15 years. The sole foundation of the Open Source model is to add your piece to the puzzle (in this case software) and share your additions with the rest of the community.
Agile IT Operations, Cloud and DevOps
DevOps is about knowing! So at this stage you have kicked off your DevOps initiative. You have Developers and Operations staff working together in a PoC team or even already managed to roll-out several teams. But how do you know if the initiative is successful and giving your organisation the desired benefits?
DevOps is about working smarter! When automating existing processes, people will likely open up entire new opportunities for working smarter. This is why an important cornerstone of a DevOps initiative is to automate what can in fact be automated. Automation frees time for innovation and development, whilst manual routines often are error prone and time consuming.
DevOps is fundamentally about changing culture. One of the primary objectives when starting a DevOps initiative is to achieve a cultural change in the organisation as a whole. To be successful with DevOps you need an organisation that takes responsibility for the full picture and not only optimises parts of processes. A good illustration of a well functioning DevOps organisation is to view the organisation and its processes as part of large manufacturing plant.
The Digital Transformation is bringing a lot of challenges for IT decision makers. One of the main challenges is trying to keep up and deliver on the business expectations and requirements for software solutions to address problems or create innovation. The sheer volume of projects and time constraints are overwhelming IT decision makers, their organisations and their ability to deliver.
To establish a DevOps style of work requires a new culture within the entire organization. So how do you go about it? Instead of optimizing within their silos, developers, operations as well as the business need to work together to establish joint targets.
Customers and users are used to getting things the way they want it, when they want it. So in order to stay competitive, your company must decrease the "time-to-market" for new ideas which in most cases requires a digital transformation.
