The Role of Operations

Trend #5: DevOps will eliminate the role of operations.

Previously, if you had a big monolithic system, it would take years to overhaul. Today, the time to change or switch out the technology stack is taking mere days to accomplish. Expect to see more pronounced changes in how companies look at investing in their legacy systems, and as a result, how the role of operations will diminish or be eliminated entirely in the next five years.

TIP: As the traditional technology refresh cycle is upended, companies looking to revise this process should start with something small that has less impact, then work their way up toward major components such as databases, networks, etc. For operations professionals, it is imperative to look at how they can adjust their skills as DevOps increasingly becomes the norm in organizations.

DevOps – a cultural and professional IT movement focused on changing the mindset of how organizations function – will no doubt make a significant impact across many companies this year. Whether it is more stable operating environments, faster delivery of product features, quicker resolution of problems, or continuous software delivery, DevOps can benefit a company's product lifecycle, its competitive advantage, and its ability to more quickly meet customer needs.

Yet for all of its benefits, DevOps is still in its early phases, because it's about making a significant cultural shift in how an organization works – and what tools it uses to improve its products. Rajesh Sethu, director of DevOps at Replicon, identifies five key trends organizations should watch in 2016, as well as tips on how these trends should be used to ensure DevOps success in your business.
