So what exactly is DevOps?
It’s growing so fast in popularity according to Gartner that a quarter of Global 2000 organisations will deploy it by the end of this year.
At the heart of DevOps are four crucial elements: speed, quality, control and cost. Speed is fundamental to competitive execution and market positioning. Quality is vital to successful implementation and long-term viability. Control, the command of data use, security, access and process is essential to safe operations. And cost as we all know is a key element of nearly all business decisions.
While it is a common assumption that implementing DevOps is a primarily technical process, we see that the cultural aspects and adjustments are equally as important. Every DevOps team need to possess certain traits in order to successfully tackle this cultural shift.
