Have you recently deployed DevOps, expecting a high return on your investments only to discover that the adoption of it hasn’t improved IT performance and business results. Did you seek to increase productivity and efficiency but only ended up being having less than usual productivity.
Do you still feel it is difficult when it comes to managing DevOps and not improving it, it would have been easy to think, this process might not work, and sooner you abandon it, sooner you will realize, you are missing out capitalizing on the benefits of DevOps to your business. It might have been true that it didn’t turn out the way you were expecting, but that doesn’t really make it any less efficient. It’s just that it needs an expert who can leverage the disruptive combination of people, processes and products that accelerates software delivery, increases operational efficiency & business results through, collaboration, fast feedback, iterative improvement, and automation.
It takes more than tools to accelerate project delivery
Managing DevOps can be complex and difficult. Many companies face these challenges because individual departments may not have deployed a framework that is aligned with business goals and objectives. Many business owners nowadays assume that DevOps is more about tools, so much so that, it is thought that all it takes is just tools to accelerate project delivery, but it is far from reality.
Even if you have the best automation tools, it may not give desired results if not used well
This disruptive technology presents a valuable opportunity for organizations to build, test and release software faster and reliably by integrating the developers and the operations team. Currently though, more than half of these projects fail to reach completion, run overtime, or lack the focus required to provide a true advantage. So what’s going wrong?
The truth is there’s a single, underlying threat to the majority of DevOps projects that often go unnoticed. And no matter how sophisticated your tool capabilities, if they have this problem, they’re likely to see less success. It might come as a surprise that even the best of organizations with the best of resources are not seeing much success. Majority of businesses that didn’t see success may not have made the best use of DevOps. Not ., many lack the knowledge that can help them can help them manage & deploy their resources and deliver the best results possible. They are not aware of how to:
- Identify organizations’ readiness for adoption of DevOps and Cloud technologies
- Define a road-map for adoption
- Identify the benefits, risks, and cost impact
- Develop enterprise-wide and BU-wise DevOps and Cloud strategy
Facts: 70% of organizations investing in DevOps initiatives have access to the approach they should not and that is fast becoming a problem for companies.
The rise in the awareness about DevOps of not just being tools but a disruptive combination of people, processes, and products are forcing organizations to revisit the need for investing in customizable frameworks and time-tested practices, driven by robust R & D, which are the cornerstone of project success.
A proven approach can help address challenges that come in the way
The lack of absence of deep knowledge of the proven DevOps approach often cripples IT organizations in effectively addressing operational, structural and technological challenges that stand in the way of efficiently accelerating high-quality applications and services.
When most companies implement DevOps, they do so with one thing in mind. It automates everything. One of the single biggest mistakes organizations commit when embarking on a project is to jump into the middle of the project and automating all that is possible without giving a thought, how they contribute to the entire project. Many companies face these challenges because they may have automated processes that are less important, which is the last thing want.
Knowing what you want to achieve is the first step to a successful project
Some seek to accelerate time to market; others seek frequent deployment, while there are some who just need more stability and the ability to standardize. If you are sure about what you’re trying to achieve, you can really say that automation can help you achieve it. Only then can it deliver the expected results. When companies skip these steps, their project is not going to be operating to its full potential.
