The Significance and Impact of DevOps on your organization
My take is that DevOps is an essential function for organizations that desire to streamline their development, deployment and operations of internal or customer-facing web applications. Not only is there an efficiency gain, but also a quality gain when practicing DevOps. Unfortunately, DevOps is a bit like Agile methodology in the sense there is no single right way to practice DevOps. DevOps must be tailored for the organization based on needs, maturity of the processes and the people involved. For many organizations the "quirk" is that the traditional IT (infrastructure, ITSM, etc.) and App Dev teams have historically operated in isolation so ramping up DevOps has been challenging due to lack of any overlapping processes between the teams. Where IT typically focuses more on rigid processes that are more predictable (bottom line), the App Dev teams have pressures to deliver business value (top line). Before DevOps can be smooth, the two teams must be ready to sing kumbaya to share and empathize with each other.
