5 Team Skills That Make DevOps A Success [63467]
DevOps.com, May 18th 2017

"When starting their DevOps journey, your team will discover it needs to develop some new skills. Most likely the team is good at typing code and solving issues, but what about the soft skills?

Many teams have to learn how to deal with issues themselves - as self-supporting teams, there is no longer a manager who will help them out and tell them what to do.

During the Phoenix Project DevOps business simulation, the majority of teams discover collaboration and communication are skills they lack. I am often surprised how few people can really facilitate standups, retrospectives, Andon-sessions and other communication methods.

Here are the five team skills that participants recognize as core skills they learn (or could learn) during the simulation..."

"Think about the last time you tried to change a personal habit. You likely hit a point where you needed to alter the way you think and make the habit less a part of your identity. This is difficult - and you're only trying to change your own ways of thinking.

DevOps.com, May 11th 2017

"Innovation, which increasingly is cited as the competitive advantage businesses need to meet their digital challenges, is widely misunderstood; it's mistakenly reduced to the sophisticated features of a technology or a service.

As a competitive matter, innovation is more than that; it's primarily the process of translating ideas or inventions into high-value technology features or added-value services. In other words, to be called innovation, a technology or a service must satisfy a specific need and create value for customers..."

DevOps, Security, Hybrid IT: Priorities Of Successful IT Pros [63262]
The Enterprisers Project, May 9th 2017

"Consider how much the role of the IT professional has changed during the last 10 years. As traditional, siloed IT roles - such as network administrators, storage administrators, systems administrators, and database administrators - continue to include new responsibilities, IT professionals can no longer get by as specialists.

These days, they're are expected to be implementing new technologies and trends, including containers, serverless architecture, and IoT, while working with cloud service providers. They're acting as liaisons to business leaders. On top of all that, they must still manage traditional technologies and infrastructure, such as on-premises servers, networks, databases, and virtualization, which, for all the new technologies and trends, still have their place..."

DevOps.com, May 8th 2017

"There was a time when the operations team and the developers regularly were at each other's throats. The developers were never satisfied with production code updates and the server administrators chafed at developers piling up the serve requests and circumventing the processes.

However, the battle lines have been somewhat erased since the advent of DevOps. IT teams adopting DevOps can move rapidly from concept to production to enhance the business impact, quality and velocity of the application delivery. Many organizations are shifting to DevOps because of its high efficiency and the number of people taking DevOps training are also increasing due to numerous job opportunities in this field..."

5 DevOps Management Faults [63010]
Information Week, May 4th 2017

"Sometimes the barriers to success with DevOps can't be blamed on poor tools or poor workmen, but on the managers who are in charge.

By all estimations, DevOps has been proven to be effective in accelerating the delivery of applications with a consistent level of code quality. In fact, DevOps has such a big impact on enterprise IT, that some call it a 'key driver of business growth' in 2017. Despite the potential, management of DevOps has proven difficult in some organizations. The biggest problems seem to revolve around improper management practices that should bind operations and development teams together..."
