Enterprise IT is now all about automation. With new-generation code and apps bringing us into the age of converged infrastructures and cloud computing, enterprises with legacy systems are challenged with keeping up with the complexities that come with these new environments. As a result, DevOps (a mashup of the terms "development" and "operations") has come to the fore as a new business process aimed at overcoming complexities that IT, systems admins and developers face on a daily basis. Even though there are some organizations implementing DevOps practices, there are still many that don't completely understand what DevOps is; they either are resistant or don't realize the benefits of deploying this new approach. DevOps is a set of methods, principles and practices for collaboration and integration between development and IT operations. This collaboration increases agility and reduces friction between development and operations, resulting in faster software/application deployment and quicker problem detection. Using eWEEK reporting and industry information from StackStorm CEO and Nexenta co-founder Evan Powell, we in this slide show explore the 10 biggest misconceptions about transitioning to a DevOps approach.
