Ten steps to DevOps success from thought leaders
Applications don’t stand still. They never have, and they never will… Change is the ONLY constant. Look at a simple and old yet life-sustaining “application” like farming. Tools were once a pair of arms and hands, evolving to a bucket, evolving to a wheelbarrow, evolving to a horse-drawn cart, evolving to however many iterations of human-driven modern tractors, evolving to automation. The process and methods of seeding, irrigating, fertilizing and harvesting have similarly evolved for centuries.
For software applications, the same school of thought applies. There are always new resources. New methodologies. New tools. New user demands and expectations. As enterprise development teams adapt their business-critical applications to today’s landscape, they face new challenges daily. The modern developer is on an eternal path to wade through all of the new variables to better understand application interdependencies, complexities, and quality across platforms, environments and languages. Application development doesn’t stand still.
The IBM Systems team spoke to 10 DevOps trailblazers about the biggest challenges they face every day, and how they approach them. We are super excited to share the learnings that come from over 200 years of real-world DevOps experience.
What are the challenges you have faced with application development and how have you overcome them? I’d invite you to share your experience with us in the comments.
