Umfrage: 50 % der Unternehmen sind noch dabei DevOps zu implementieren

Zwei aus meiner Sicht empfehlenswerte Berichte zum Thema DevOps. Zuerst die Umfrageergebnisse unter 700 IT Profis zum Thema. Obwohl das Thema DevOps nicht mehr neu ist, sind noch 50 % der befragten Unternehmen dabei, DevOps zu implementieren.

  • 50% of companies polled are still integrating DevOps, or have done so within the past year.
  • The hardest part of integrating DevOps is, in order according to the poll: Shifting company incentives to change behaviors, maintaining open communication and transparency, and having flexible processes.
  • The primary challenge with DevOps is a lack of time and a lack of team-wide expertise.
  • 70% of respondents say that DevOps has always or usually contributed to greater overall agility.
  • Overworking remains a serious issue, with 70% of respondents stating that they could see themselves burning out.
  • 43% of survey respondents say that DevOps has improved innovation, and 34% say that it has led to a marginal innovation increase.

Trotz der Herausforderungen würden Unternehmen, die DevOps in ihre Entwicklungsprozesse integrieren, in der schnelleren Auslieferung von Software-Releases profitieren und schneller auf Marktanforderungen reagieren können, so die Studie.

Isaac Sacolick geht in seinem Beitrag auf den notwendigen Kulturwandel ein. Zuerst seine sehr gute Definition von DevOps und das unterschiedliche Verständnis von Entwicklerteam und Operations, des klassischen IT Betriebs:

An amalgamation of “development” and “operations,” “devops” describes the organizational structure, practices, and culture needed to enable rapid agile development and scalable, reliable operations. Devops is about the culture, collaborative practices, and automation that aligns development and operations teams so they have a single mindset on improving customer experiences, responding faster to business needs, and ensuring that innovation is balanced with security and operational needs.
For development teams, that usually means standardizing platforms, following an agile development process, and participating in operationally driven initiatives. For operations teams, it means targeting better stability, reducing costs, and improving responsiveness.

Er plädiert dafür, Operations und Entwicklung enger miteinander zu verschränken, um ein gemeinsames Verständnis zu entwickeln und dadurch Hürden und Schwierigkeiten abzubauen:

In this transformational view, devops aims to reduce conflicts that arise when developers are focused on meeting business demands to add functionality and improve the usability of applications whereas operations teams are traditionally more focused on the stability and security of the computing environments. It tries to educate developers on operational responsibilities and educate operations teams on how to serve business needs smarter and faster.

When there is a shared understanding and a better alignment on priorities and process between the development and operations team, a more customer-centric devops culture emerges.
