Kill DevOps

Key takeaways
  • Define DevOps as the set of cultural norms
  • Explain the value of DevOps to business executives
  • Examine your value chain and discover whether your weakest link is in IT or the business
  • Adopt the right attitude to continuous learning and experimentation

There is much hype around DevOps, so what are we actually talking about?

DevOps improved Agile by speeding up deployment (and more). But how do you 'sell' DevOps to business executives who don't understand IT?

No business value is realized until the users actually use the systems well. This is often the weakest link in the IT value chain, so you need to extend your scope.

But why "Kill DevOps"? This refers to an ancient Zen saying about a monk’s journey towards enlightenment and awakening. If you think that you’ve found Buddha, think again, because you never will. It’s the same with DevOps: it’s about continuous experimentation and learning.
