A Four Step Approach to an Enterprise-Wide DevOps Transformation

 

To compete in today’s marketplace, business leaders are breaking down organizational silos and replicating DevOps practices across the organization to improve business workflows, overall collaboration, and the customer experience. While implementing a widespread DevOps initiative is no easy feat, here’s a few ways to ensure your transformation is a success:

Secure buy-in and support

Implementing agility and collaboration enterprise-wide requires a significant change in mindset and behavior. Recruit a C-level executive sponsor to set the tone at your company, and to hold

employees accountable for adopting DevOps practices.

Reduce operational friction

Delivering value to customers requires aligning business needs with the software delivery process. Remove bottlenecks, automate manual work, and increase stakeholder visibility across the enterprise to help you make informed decisions as business priorities and customer needs change.

Educate and train employees

Make it easy for employees to incorporate best practices into their everyday routine. By introducing new workflows incrementally, employees can essentially program themselves to perform actions that lead to successful outcomes.

Grow your culture

Instill a culture focused on testing, learning, and failing, while keeping the customer at the focal point. This means being less feature-centric and more solutions-centric and collecting feedback

to ensure that what you’re doing is something your customers want.
