Although the conversation about DevOps typically focuses mostly on the tool sets and platforms – Puppet, Docker, Microservices et al, the more profoundly challenging aspects for most large organizations will be in the organizational transformation is proposed as part of the ‘Cloud Native‘ mix. The Inverse Conway Maneuver As is described in the complimentary ebook from Pivotal – Migrating to Cloud Native Application Architectures: DevOps sets out to break down the artificial boundaries that develop profusely in large, hierarchical organizations, and instead self-organize around a ‘delivery pipeline’ of the work required to deploy code faster and with fewer errors. In short a ‘Lean’ system, one with zero process waste. They reference the intriguing ‘Inverse Conway Manever‘ to describe this transformation from a silo-based organization to one optimized for DevOps. Org... (more)

This is a pretty fundamental shift in IT habits, embracing both the Docker-inspired container technology wave as well as a holistic transformation of how software is built too. So how do the two relate, what is the connection between employing containers for deployment and microservices for architecture? Microservice Containers Nate Slater, a Solution Architect with AWS Startups explores this questio... (more)

How Does DevOps Fit with ITIL? | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

A simple objective but a troublesome one in reality – as many experts explain the core issue is they are directly opposed: One is tasked with creating as much software change as is possible, and the other tasked with minimizing change as much as possible. Even the smallest full stop in a URL in a line of code can break an entire system and deploying c... (more)
