Where do I start with DevOps?
Working in IT Operations is hard like really hard. Most of you who have been doing for years already know this. Technical debt seems to pile up and you are constantly being asked to more with less. Most companies are now an IT organization which puts more pressure from the business to help generate revenue.
DevOps is the key to helping IT operations transform from a fragile chaos ridden teams into agile disciplined teams. Sounds like another absurd promise from the buzzword of the day. I’d probably think that way, however, my back ground as a Scrum Master tells me it’s true. In the the developer realm we have been using agile frameworks since the Agile Manifesto was written in 2001. Yes we have a Manifesto!
Phoenix Project Book?
Before jumping in head first I recommend reading The Phoenix Project. It’s a fictional account of a company where everything that can go wrong does go wrong. Of course the problems all fall on IT operations. The book walks through how a company can transform from a traditional IT organization that is seen as a cost center into a revenue generating part of the company.
