Implement DevOps Practices That Work

Accelerate software deployment through Dev and Ops collaboration.

Onsite Workshop

There is an inherent competition in objectives between development and operations, leading to teams feeling like they are in conflict rather than working together. This is due to:

  • Business wants to move faster and deliver new features to customers without compromising the reliability and stability of their systems.
  • Development is tasked with getting new features into production, and ultimately the customer’s hand as fast as possible. They introduce change the business desires.
  • Operations is tasked with managing the stability and performance of systems so they do not disrupt the end user. They are incentivized to resist the change that developers introduce.

Adopting the right DevOps practices will provide the following benefits:

  • Better alignment to overarching business objectives across the organization.
  • Break down cross-functional thinking and remove bottlenecks impeding the delivery of business value.
  • Increase cross-team collaboration and transparency that will prevent mistrust between development and operations.
  • Improve the quality and performance of applications.
