DevOps Principles Lead to Architectural Changes

Executive Update
Posted February 12, 2015 in Agile Product Management & Software Engineering Excellence

DevOps is more than a set of tools and scripts used to make software operations easier within a software engineering group. DevOps is also a set of principles based on the belief that when an organization improves its deployment frequency, it will find success with a faster time to market, a lower failure rate on new releases, a shorter time between reporting bugs and deploying fixes in production, and a heightened ability to respond to production operations issues. Increased deployment frequency leads to increased profitability due to these successes. As we explore in this Executive Update, when an organization begins an internal DevOps initiative, it will find that it needs architectural changes for its desires to come to fruition.
