Adopting DevOps

Adopting DevOps

What is it? 

Many companies are looking to adopt DevOps due to the increased agility of IT service delivery it enables them to have. DevOps combines previously silo’d teams into broad cross functional teams aligned to products. DevOps teams own the delivery of the product, it’s roadmap and lifecycle from architecture through to operational support. DevOps officially turns 10 in 2018 and despite its maturity, until recently, its adoption rate has been relatively low. The increased reliance of businesses on digital technology, where rapid innovation allows them to build and maintain competitive advantage has resulted in a significant rise in interest and adoption of DevOps ways of working.

Why is it important?

  • Customers who consume IT expect it to be delivered rapidly, feature rich and stable, DevOps has become the natural approach to IT departments to adopt.
  • Ability to bring teams across Technology with different mindsets and way of working, together with new tools.
  • More innovative and efficient way. Able to deliver a product faster whilst still being able to meet quality objectives is an attractive proposition.
