Why DevOps Changes Everything Prior Year Content

DevOps is more than a buzzword or a passing fad. It's a radical new approach to rapidly deliver and manage high quality software applications. However, many organizations don’t fully grasp the magnitude of this change or what it means for everyone involved in the software development lifecycle. When done well, DevOps drives higher quality and efficiency into software development, software testing, and application management activities. It empowers teams to remove quality and productivity impediments throughout the entire software lifecycle. When done poorly, critical bugs are deployed directly into production and software failures increase. Today, team members are often confused about their changing role and become frustrated. Jeffery Payne discusses how DevOps changes everything and what you must implement to reap the benefits of this movement. Learn what steps to take to successfully implement a DevOps process while avoiding the pitfalls. Take home ideas for how to leverage DevOps to advance your career.
