    Foster the DevOps Culture

    Keep on fostering the DevOps culture.

    DevOps culture needs constant commitment by the stakeholders involved. While the tools your DevOps teams use might change, you'll need the team to be committed to making the process continually better. What does that mean? It means that sometimes, you might plan for a certain outcome but it just doesn't work out. It's easy to give up, but a true DevOps team will look at why it failed (post mortem), how it can be avoided in the future/what did we learn, and how to move forward from this point. Successful DevOps teams aren't a result, but a constant effort at improving the speed, accuracy and agility of the development environment.

DevOps is all the rage in the trendiest IT circles. Many organizations are spinning up their own DevOps team, while others are building entirely new organizations around the idea. With the recent growth of ultra-scaling startups like Uber and AirBNB, DevOps is the next standard in how IT organizations produce great outcomes in a faster and easier way.

Why is DevOps hot right now? Traditionally, IT organizations have been run as independent silos, with specialists working within their departments and communicating when needed with other branches of the company. This has lead to a centralized IT department — with demand coming from a sprawling developer community within an organization. With today's 24/7/365-Internet-facing projects and tight timelines, business leaders have realized that it's a tedious and inefficient way to run IT — hence, the rise of DevOps.

What is it? DevOps, broadly stated, is a way for organizations to integrate their IT and developer environments into a continuous delivery system that allows faster, more agile outcomes from IT teams. By having everyone work together rather than in silos, and involving everyone in the process, problematic designs or challenges can be addressed earlier in the development lifecycle. In addition, by having everyone involved with at least a bird's eye view of the project, all members have a better understanding of the challenges involved, reducing drama and accelerating deployments.
