DevOperability – Putting the Ops back into DevOps
We do “DevDev” really well, but are Ops people sufficiently engaged in ‘DevOps’ efforts and do we know what Operability means? We seem to have moved the wall between Dev and Ops a little bit further to the right, instead of destroying it!
Many larger organisations are guilty of this and we see the same issues at TransUnion. One of our greatest challenges is to encourage product teams to look not just at deploy-and-run-ability but also at long term operability of solutions. I’ll talk a bit about what operability means and how we can embed the right concepts early – with particular emphasis on understanding, testing and deployment.
