    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.

Why do DevOps?

The effective management of technology is critical for business competitiveness. High-performing organizations are 2.5x more likely than their peers to exceed profitability, market share, and productivity goals.

Value Streams & the Three Ways

We introduce the underpinning theory and primer of Lean Manufacturing, as well as the broader princples of the Three Ways—the principles from which all of the observed DevOps behaviors can be derived.

Where to Start

We will discuss where to start, who will be involved, and how to protect, organize, and enable our teams.

Accelerate Flow

We sustain the fast flow of work from Dev into Ops, without causing chaos and disruption to the production environment and customers.

Accelerate Feedback

We shorten and amplify feedback loops, radiating feedback and making information visible to everyone in the value stream.

Accelerate Learning

We continually shorten and amplify our feedback loops, relentlessly creating ever safer systems of work.

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.
