Big Enterprises Need Big DevOps

Big Enterprises Need Big DevOps

The more I encounter organizations adopting a DevOps approach, the more I believe that everyone needs DevOps. I increasingly see how it addresses fundamental problems that nearly every IT organization faces. If you ask senior executives if their organizations are doing DevOps, you often get a blank stare. However, ask them if they are doing anything to foster better collaboration and communication between Development and Operations and you will find that there is not a single organization that is not doing something in this effort. I am also coming to understand that DevOps is at a crossroads and you can see the signs of it in the way companies are using DevOps. Like ITIL before it, instead of sticking to a “pure” DevOps methodology, many companies are adapting DevOps and forcing it to flex. DevOps is such a good idea, yet it is so utterly foreign for so many (especially…

Video Roundup – Gartner Symposium and ITxpo 2013

Video Roundup – Gartner Symposium and ITxpo 2013

I was recently at Gartner Symposium and ITxpo 2013 in Orlando Florida. Another great Symposium, with some excellent speakers, centering on the topic of “digitalization” – fascinating stuff! While I was there, I presented with the great Ken Piddington (@kenpiddington), CIO of Global Partners LP, on “Taking Charge of the Digital Revolution”. Great turn-out, and Ken was such a brilliant co-presenter. We talked about cloud, devops, mobile, social, and the gos station of the future, as a way to illustrate the incredible innovation that is coming fast, in the form of this digital revolution. You can catch the whole presentation in the on-demand video (as long as it is still there when you read this). I also recorded a quick impromptu roundup of what I thought was cool and interesting. Check it out at the CA Technologies YouTube channel, or embedded below:

Survey: DevOps an Overnight Success Because It Works

We’ve all heard of bands or movie stars that seem to be overnight successes, even though they’ve been working hard for 10 years to “suddenly” make it. Like them, the idea of DevOps seems to have come out of nowhere, even though it has been around for years and is suddenly making it big because it delivers big business benefits. That’s the results highlighted in the  latest researchconducted by Vanson Bourne and sponsored by CA Technologies. Two-thirds of the 1,300 respondents from large organizations across the globe have a DevOps strategy currently in place or plan to implement one. (We define DevOps as a method of developing software which lets developers and IT operations professionals communicate and collaborate to speed the delivery of new business services.) Even more importantly, of those who have implemented DevOps, more than 90 percent have seen or expect to see measurable benefits. Ninety-four percent, for…
