  • DESCRIPTION

    Organizations struggle with obtaining buy-in and implementing DevOps methodologies because security, compliance, and audit stakeholders (both internal and external) believe that change control requirements cannot be met. These stakeholders often tend to disrupt adoption of DevOps before an organization can explore its potential for implementation. In this paper, we will provide some high-level guidance on three major concerns about DevOps Practices: DevOps and Change Control, DevOps and Security, DevOps and Separation of Duties.
