As agility and speed to market become increasingly important for enterprises’ survival in a highly competitive and dynamic business landscape, the popularity of DevOps has ballooned exponentially and is becoming a standard way of working for many companies.
DevOps is the software development approach that focuses on fostering collaboration between the teams that create and test applications (Dev) and those that maintain them in production environments (Ops).
Today, organisations globally as well as those in Australia and New Zealand are turning to DevOps to address the increasing pressure to deliver higher quality apps within a shorter period of time. Its ultimate goal is adding increased value to the customer and enabling organisations to react faster to change in the business.
The 2016 State of DevOps Report found that organisations employing DevOps are outperforming their lower-performing peers. They deploy 200 times more frequently, with 2,555 times faster lead times, recover 24 times faster, and have three times lower change failure rates.
Below are some principles and practices we’ve developed that will enable you to getting a step closer to achieving a DevOps-focused mindset in your organisation.
