Modern Services Demand a DevOps Culture Beyond Apps
Great video from Glenn O’Donnell at Forrester Research on DevOps.
The benefits of DevOps span far beyond business applications and far beyond
only the release phase.
Business services are comprised of many components that fall under both
infrastructure and applications umbrellas.
These components come in a wide variety of forms (physical, virtual, and
cloud), with the components changing states and relationships continually.
DevOps becomes a necessity way of life in such complex, dynamic environments.
