Gordon Cullum, chief technology officer of digital services firm Mastek, considers why some companies are reluctant to embrace “DevOps” – the process of combining software development and information technology operations to shorten development lifecycle – even though it has been demonstrated to offer clear benefits. He details the typical stages that most organisations encounter as they adopt DevOps strategies in the attempt to improve their technology and processes, including preparation before setting out on a DevOps transformation and having an over-arching picture of existing technologies and an assessment of their complexity in order to remove unnecessary complication. “Managing a DevOps culture is not the same as creating one; processes must be put in place that boost new attitudes and behaviours,” notes Cullum.
