DevOps has come a long way in the past decade. In a report released more than a year ago, Forrester declared that the practice had reached “escape velocity,” with more than half of all enterprises implementing and expanding DevOps processes.
But, according to some in the field, gaps still exist between the dev and the ops sides of most organizations. We talk with Brad about why the two sides remain at odds and how companies are struggling to create a delivery infrastructure that balances agility and control.
We discuss how people – not tools – remain the biggest obstacles to companies’ drives to achieve DevOps “nirvana.” We also cover a wide range of other topics – including IT teams’ propensity to force tools to perform tasks they’re not cut out for and young professionals from outside of computer science spending more time learning to code.
