Adopt Robust Analytics

Relief Step #5: Prioritize Analytics

Build analytics and monitoring into everything – and Parsons means everything. Adopt a robust analytics platform, where all application and tools data can be stored, so that operations can have the systems visibility it needs. Do this even for the systems not under operations' control – give them awareness without hindering adoption. Leverage analytics to guide and manage the effort. The trick? Become a facilitator while maintaining all needed operations practices.

DevOps and operations teams are always focused on problem solving. They are not only under increasing pressure from tech-savvy, app-centric business users to collaboratively solve challenging business problems with IT, but also trying to keep up with a rapidly changing landscape of tools, technologies, processes and adoption. So, as we head into 2015, it is important to take stock of all the potential new challenges ahead … as well as some ways to get ahead of them.

IT infrastructure used to be a service published to the rest of the organization – all new requests were made to and executed by the operations team. However, the process is becoming more democratized and collaborative. And while that is certainly a good thing for business, it shifts the dynamic and responsibilities considerably.

Luckily, knowing what is coming will help DevOps and operations teams better prepare to overcome it. In this slideshow, operations expert Dr. Trevor Parsons of Logentries explores the five challenges teams need to address – from cultural changes and shifting ownership to hybrid environment complications. He also shares steps to take now to overcome future challenges and save some headaches along the way.
