The Enterprise DevOps Whimper - surviving the trough of disillusionment

A presentation at DevOpsDays Austin in in Austin, TX, USA by Michael Coté

When it comes to applying DevOps, most enterprises are facing bottlenecks that are too often ignored, or assumed solved, by the DevOps community. Based on case studies, this talk discusses those bottlenecks and how we can help move past them.

When it comes to improving how software is done in large organizations there’s still a lot of work to be done. In fact, most haven’t started applying DevOps principles or even technologies. We’ve had agile for 20 years, and DevOps for 10 years. You would expect enterprises to have started using these best practices and, as they say, “transformed” by now. Enterprises are facing bottlenecks that are too often ignored, or assumed solves, by the DevOps community. This talk discusses those bottlenecks and how we can help move past them. Otherwise, DevOps will continue to play around the edges of the trough of disillusionment: much talked of, but not put into practice enough.

We all want DevOps to thrive and benefit our colleagues in IT. Our forgotten pals in THE ENTERPRISE are hungry to thrive and enjoy the benefits of DevOps. Let’s make sure they do.
