DevOps Transformation

Understanding the DevOps Transformation

DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. This speed enables organizations to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the market.

Why DevOps Transformation matter in Today’s Business?

Competition, new products and continuing pressure to monetize older services severely taxing many businesses driven by legacy applications and infrastructure. To maintain the competitive edge in a highly dynamic market, business need to re-imagine the customer experience in lower economics. Enterprises looking for modernization of their legacy stack and operate in more fast and competitive way taking DevOps as key strategic drivers. As companies embrace DevOps, they must address both technology and the human side of change. The most important need for technology and human side are as follows:

Technology Shift

Small services delivered in extreme agile manner and runs in multi cloud hybrid ecosystem in lowest Capex & Opex with highest security.

Technology Shift

Cultural Shift

A culture with less roles, much E2E responsibilities, which innovates fast accepting high speed feedback and respond with super-fast delivery coupled with stringent security and lower economics.

Cultural Shift

Getting Started To DevOps

The first step is for CIOs to connect with the business to establish clear lines of communication and to set common goals. Within the IT organization, CIOs must set policies that identify the need to prepare for DevOps as a priority for overall IT strategies. Courageous leadership is key for success in adopting an enterprise wide DevOps culture.

Then we recommend assessing the company’s People, Process and Technology estate using some standard maturity model. The Synectiks maturity model for a quick DevOps assessment is as follows:

For your self-assessment, please refer  DevOps assessment Questionnaires

The standard maturity model-based assessment will clearly give you insights on the current and future capability to create a business case for improvement in each capability and thereby helping you to create a roadmap to guide the journey to DevOps centric organization. This roadmap should map people, process, technology change requirement, consider IT policy and operating model factors; and ultimately produce clear, data-based recommendations with a proposed execution plan to enable DevOps transformation to happen. Getting there will require significant upliftment of people skills, impart modern tools and technologies, transforming and migrating applications, integrating and orchestrating environments, automating and monitoring business services, enabling digital processes, and integrating data and security.
