DevOps: How Automation and Intelligence Drive Velocity

By: Jim MercerResearch Director, DevOps


These event proceedings were presented at the IDC Directions conferences in Santa Clara and Boston in March 2019.

DevOps and agile development have become buzzwords for an industry obsessed with successfully navigating through a digital transformation and accelerating the overall process of creating new software. But moving to a software-driven world is about a lot more than just streamlining development and operations or implanting a process that bridges dev and ops. This is about a fundamental shift affecting the mindset of a company from an operational point of view. Jim Mercer introduces the steps that organizations can take to move methodically toward an agile development, deployment, and operational paradigm and the pitfalls that need to be avoided. Strategies for how organizations can successfully free developers from legacy/waterfall development processes and how to recruit executive sponsorship are covered, along with the opportunities for vendors to provide assistance to organizations making this transition. As a longtime developer, Mercer can provide firsthand experience about what works and what does not work, along with guidance to ensure that DevOps investments result in innovation acceleration.
