Achieve business goals, maximize IT productivity, and deliver innovation with enterprise-scale DevOps.

Teams that excel do so not just because they have the best members, the best tools, the best training, the best processes, or even the best leaders and coaches. They excel because they, as a team, have all of the above, but also know what to do when they face various situations and challenges. They have a playbook of potential solutions or 'plays' for a variety of scenarios.

In the same way, IT organizations need 'plays' to execute. For day-to-day application delivery and operations, these so called plays are captured in their development, delivery and operational processes. IT organizations that succeed have good processes, and execute them with excellence. However, transforming large, complex, distributed IT organizations to achieve this success is another story. Most organizations struggle with transformations and do not have winning 'plays' that can overcome cultural and organizational inertia. Author Sanjeev Sharma heads the DevOps practice for IBM. In this book he provides unique guidance and insight on undertaking a DevOps transformation for such organizations. He captures a set of proven, repeatable 'plays' for adopting DevOps at enterprise scale and helping organizations achieve their business goals by balancing the need for speed, agility, quality, optimization and innovation. He describes how to:

  • Grasp the full extent of the DevOps impact on IT Organizations
  • Achieve high-value innovation and optimization with low cost and low risk
  • Exceed traditional business goals with higher product release efficiency
  • Implement DevOps in large-scale enterprise IT environments
DevOps has been one of IT's hottest trends for the past decade, and plenty of success stories testify to its effectiveness in organizations of any size, industry, or level of IT maturity all around the world. Learn from the DevOps Adoption Playbook how to develop your own DevOps adoption 'playbook' to get your organization on the road to maximizing productivity and innovation at enterprise scale.
