  • description

    More than ever, the effective management of technology is critical for business competitiveness. For decades, technology leaders have struggled to balance agility, reliability, and security. The consequences of failure have never been greater―whether it’s the healthcare.gov debacle, cardholder data breaches, or missing the boat with Big Data in the cloud.

    And yet, high performers using DevOps principles, such as Google, Amazon, Facebook, Etsy, and Netflix, are routinely and reliably deploying code into production hundreds, or even thousands, of times per day.

    Following in the footsteps of The Phoenix Project, The DevOps Handbook shows leaders how to replicate these incredible outcomes, by showing how to integrate Product Management, Development, QA, IT Operations, and Information Security to elevate your company and win in the marketplace.

Mythbusting DevOps in the Enterprise

Anyone leading a company through a DevOps transformation will encounter minor to significant internal skepticism or lack concrete experience. This document lists the most common leadership and cultural traps and provides high-level reassurance and evidence that DevOps practices are generally applicable and plausibly successful in enterprise environments.

An Unlikely Union: DevOps and Audit

Many organizations often get stymied when dealing with information security, compliance, and audit requirements. There seems to be a misconception that DevOps practices won’t work in organizations which are under SOX or PCI regulations. In this paper, seven experts provide high-level guidance on three major concerns about DevOps Practices: DevOps and Change Control, DevOps and Security, DevOps and Separation of Duties.
