The DevOps payoff is both cultural and financial. Various studies, including the annual Puppet Labs survey, have shown that one begets the other. DevOps is about creating an environment of communication, collaboration and trust between IT and business teams. This is no easy feat. But the stronger the culture becomes, the more stable an environment it creates and the higher morale and productivity rise. As a result, companies that succeed at DevOps outperform their respective peer groups in most operating and valuation metrics ...

The proliferation of data and the pace of innovation within the open source software ecosystem are driving the convergence of Big Data, Cloud Computing, and DevOps/Automation. Proficiency across these functional areas is essential in this rapidly evolving, converging IT environment. At the moment, however, there's a lack of qualified talent with these cross-disciplinary skills. To an extent, the emergence of DevOps itself has led to a skills imbalance across disciplines ...

Companies rating the interactions between Dev and Ops as “Above Average” or “Excellent” are 11.5 times more likely to achieve double-digit revenue growth than those rating such interactions as “Average” or “Poor” ...

Over the last few years I've tried to represent a clear and growing trend that I've come to call "Advanced IT Analytics" or AIA, in contrast with other industry terms such as "IT Operations Analytics" and "Big Data". My issue with the former is that AIA isn't restricted to operations, but can reach out across all of IT, including executives, service desk and ITSM teams, development and even non-IT business stakeholders. It is multi-use case and multi-stakeholder in value, as the same data mosaic may serve performance, security, change management, and DevOps requirements, while also supporting business stakeholders in areas such as customer experience and market planning ...

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 ...
