Debunking the Top Myths About DevOps

By Darryl K. Taft  |  Posted 2014-07-30

CA has come up with a new booklet to help enterprises looking to move into DevOps break out the myth from the reality. CA says DevOps is real and is delivering real benefits, but that doesn't stop people from having adverse ideas about it. In the booklet, titled Dysfunction Junction - A Pragmatic Guide to Getting Started with DevOps, CA looks at what it deems are the five biggest myths about DevOps. The move to DevOps has been prompted by demands for newer, better, faster applications. And nothing has impacted software development more than the advent of mobile, social, big data, the Internet of things and cloud environments, where rapid development of apps is a must and DevOps is king. With DevOps, developers and line-of-business operations are able to work together to develop faster than traditional methods of developing software by integrating all organizational systems, simplifying testing and quality assurance, and providing faster access to feedback. This allows the continuous delivery of apps through more intelligent use of app analytics, better management of projects, increased ability for market tests and a more rapid release schedule of new features. DevOps is catching on more than ever among more agile IT groups and now, based on survey data from CA, it is apparent that DevOps is indeed not only a way to produce better software faster, but also to drive revenue. This eWEEK slide show debunks DevOps myths.
