Supercharging the business of IT by bridging the gap between development and operations
When it comes to application development (Dev), the business cares about speed and quality. Contrast that with IT operations (Ops), held accountable for response times, stability, and efficiency, and focused on how to reduce business disruptions at the lowest cost. These are very different core missions that yield very different behaviors. The goal is to bridge the gap between development and operations, supercharging the investments that currently exist in siloed automation by integrating the end-to-end delivery model. Simply stated: real-time DevOps.
IT can likely improve the quality of their products and services by standardizing and automating environment, build, release, and configuration management—using tools like deployment managers, virtualization, continuous integration servers, and automated build verification testing.
Real-time DevOps is not a tool, though tools make it workable. Real-time DevOps is a process shift that changes the cadence of how much can be done—and in how much time.
Alejandro Danylyszyn, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP, describes how an organization was able to achieve better results in less time from its software development efforts by introducing automation and integration into its development process.
