Benefits of a DevOps Mindset

By IT Revolution

series of advice blogs from DevOps Enterprise Summit 2020 presenters.

Sometimes, it’s not easy to help a boss or colleague understand why and how DevOps can solve many or your problems.

But these experts from the DevOps Enterprise Summit boil it down to its simplest and most powerful for you. 

“We are designing an entire system of delivery, from idea to end user, around the truth that every requirement is wrong, we’ve misunderstood it, and/or it will have changed by the time we can deliver a solution for it. The longer the delay between request and delivery, the more expensive that problem becomes.”
—Bryan Finster, Value Stream Architect, Walmart DevOps Dojo, Walmart

“The future is unknown. Adaptability is your secret weapon.
—Dave Mangot, Principal, Mangoteque

“Deliver customer value daily.”
—Mick Miller, Senior Product Manager, Cloud Native, KeyBank

“Rapid iteration and reduction of the human ‘bug’ in our systems makes for a more enjoyable environment for both developers/engineers as well as the customers that user our products
—Adam Shake, Director of Site Reliability Engineering, MediaMath Source

“Speed and quality. Delivery velocity increases as does the quality of what is being delivered. It also allows you to experiment with potential large revenue generating features without full blown product investment that may take took long to develop to get feedback.
—Christopher McFee, Director of DevOps Practices, KeyBank

“The benefit I most appreciate about an agile/devops mindset is how empowering it is. It changes the dynamic from adversarial to collaborative with a focus on jointly designing the best approach to reach a shared goal.
—Jeffrey Fredrick, coauthor of Agile Conversations

“Fast feedback.”
—Roman Pickl, Technical Project Manager and Continuous Improvement Agent, Elektrobit

“Happier customers and happier engineers.”
—David Stanke, Developer Advocate, Google

“Own what you build.”
—Jonathan Akers, Product Owner – RadioCentral, Motorola Solutions

“Frequent detection and correction of error.”
—Douglas Squirrel, coauthor of Agile Conversations
