Upcoming Webcasts looks to clear up confusion around DevOps
The IT industry, particularly vendors, is hyping the concept of DevOps quite a bit lately, but a recent CA.com poll seems to throw a wet blanket over the topic:
While nearly a third of respondents seem to agree with the idea that DevOps is a way to speed application delivery and improve quality, 45 percent had no clue about DevOps. Add that to the 17 percent that think it’s pure hype, and you’ve got more than 60 percent of respondents in the DevOps Doubters column.
How do we define DevOps? Simply, we think it’s a coming together of development and operations teams, which typically work in silos, around a common set of tools.
