The move to DevOps also introduces additional constraints to our burgeoning Iron Polygon, as individual projects become less distinct. In an environment focused on continuous automated testing as well as continuous integration and deployment, individual iterations become the project unit as organizations establish regular cadences of repeated iterations instead of the discrete, monolithic project releases that characterize traditional waterfall-oriented development ...

What it means to build quality software has taken a beating over the years. We're no longer content to strive for defect-free code. We must also make sure the software meets both its functional and nonfunctional requirements. Only now with the rise of more Agile ways of thinking, we've placed the notion of a software requirement under the microscope, as building flexible, resilient software often trumps checking items off our requirements list. As a result, the tried and true Project Management Iron Triangle has taken its lumps. We've been trying to bend or rework the Iron Triangle for years, with limited success. Today, thanks to DevOps and Agile Architecture, we finally can ...

As enterprises embrace the DevOps philosophy, and the coalescence of the Development and Operations continues, I foresee the conditions ripening to foster innovative methods of making application performance better and code deployments smoother. To me, the argument that system monitoring is just a “nice to have” and not really a core requirement for operational readiness dissipates quickly when a critical application goes down with no warning ...

Pursuing DevOps ROI (return on investment) is compelling for organizations that adopt this approach to agile development practices. With the evolution toward cloud and mobile apps that run on converged infrastructures companies that implement DevOps processes can realize significant benefits in the three components of ROI. These include reduced costs, enhanced productivity and faster time to revenue. DevOps can also help mitigate risks, such as customer loss due to poor user experience, operational inefficiencies, and non-compliance with GRC (governance, regulatory, compliance) mandates ...
