For many large enterprises, achieving both the customer focus of digital transformation and the business velocity of DevOps is a daunting task.
Simply replacing old with new is rarely practical or cost-effective. And yet, separating fast-moving digital efforts from slower, traditional IT is a recipe for disaster.
In a recently published article entitled, “DevOps: The Secret to Digital Transformation and Live Business?” author and expert, Fred Isbell, writes:
“One such concept that is currently cresting at the hype roller coaster is the Internet of Things (IoT), and it promises to be as pervasive as anything we’ve ever seen,” adding, “With the IoT’s connection and dependency on support, DevOps is clearly a best practice. But could it be a fundamental secret to enabling digital transformation, innovation, collaboration, and support – all characteristics of a Live Business?”
For those unfamiliar, DevOps is (a):
1. A clipped compound of development and operations
2. Culture, movement, or practice that emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other IT professionals, while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes
3. An environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably.
How Can DevOps Help Your Business Successfully Implement a Digital Transformation?
The answer: incorporating still-valuable legacy applications into modern digital efforts while carefully updating or replacing older tech when necessary.
“DevOps focuses on four primary areas within the IT organization: culture, organizational style (including key roles), processes, and tools,” Isbell writes, adding, “In the case of DevOps, we’re talking about the software development and operations teams responsible for production systems, quality assurance, and testing team. Just like sales, marketing, and the marketing operations functions that seamlessly work together in parallel, DevOps must embrace collaboration – not an end-to-end, time-consuming serial process.
