[At the Unicom DevOps Summit on 23rd May 2013 in London I gave a talk on The Business Case for DevOps; here is a summary of the talk, along with the slides. Update: now with video too.]
With an increasing number of organisations turning to DevOps to try to improve their software systems, it is becoming necessary to provide the business case for introducing DevOps, especially in organisations which perceive their main focus to be something other than software systems.
For me, building the business case for DevOps has three strands:
- Using appropriate terminology
- Recognising the huge technology shift which has occurred over the last few years
- Emphasising the importance of operability in our software systems
