The primary goal of DevOps is to deliver better software faster and to keep improving it constantly. It follows that those who are seeking to integrate a DevOps culture into their company would like to do so as quickly as possible.

The easiest way to accelerate progress toward DevOps adoption is to engage a qualified partner to provide a variety of services. This enables you to immediately accomplish many things that would take far longer were you to try to figure them each out on your own.

DevOps Certifications: Get Certified and Demonstrate Your Capabilities

A global, member-based association, the DevOps Institute (DOI) “is dedicated to advancing the human elements of DevOps success,” explaining that “All of our work, including accreditations, research, events, and continuous learning programs – is focused on providing the “human know-how” to modernize IT and make DevOps succeed.” This is accomplished through their human-centered SKIL framework, the acronym SKIL describing Skills, Knowledge, Ideas, and Learning.

The Institute is led by DevOps thought leaders and enables training providers to leverage the DevOps Certification Model to provide comprehensive, relevant, sustainable courses. Many learning centers and other training resources study with the DOI to earn accreditation as a Registered Education Partner (REP) which licenses to them the use of the latest courseware and the approval to enable their students to earn certification credentials as proof of their qualifications to work in a DevOps environment.

This may seem obvious, that DevSecOps includes the security team with the development team and the operations team all working together, but a deeper understanding of why is of definite benefit to your planning and operating processes.

DevOps Automation: Where to Begin and How You Can Benefit

Posted by Tiempo Development

It is tempting when implementing DevOps to seek to automate everything you can find that can be automated. This is a temptation to be resisted.

Great automation starts with great manual processes. When you take an ineffective, flawed manual process and automate it, you’re automating a bad process. The process remains just as bad as ever, it just happens faster and more frequently.

When you’ve determined that your manual process is highly optimized and effective, it’s time for someone to step up and suggest that process be automated.

Paving the Path for DevOps Adoption

The failure of users to adopt any new platform is often cited as the underlying cause behind three-quarters of new initiatives. Given that DevOps requires deeper commitment by a broader variety of people than most platforms or methodologies, nowhere is it more critical to pay close attention to the active promotion of adoption than it is when transitioning to DevOps.

Users and even executives cite several reasons why they fail to adopt a DevOps culture-shift. Many suggest that other technology and business initiatives are higher priority to them than DevOps. Some point to a shortage of resources impacting the decision to change. Some simply don’t see value in making such a comprehensive change

Lean, Agile, and DevOps: A Focus on Delivering Superior Value

The Evolution of Lean to Agile to DevOps

There’s something to be said for standing on the shoulders of giants.

Many try to compare and contrast Lean, Agile, and DevOps methodologies, but the reality is that Lean led to Agile which was then extended to become DevOps. The ultimate goals of all three are similar, including faster time-to-market, faster time-to-value, greater efficiency, greater quality, increased customer satisfaction, time and financial savings, and constant improvement through constant delivery and rapid user feedback. While Agile and DevOps are usually considered to be focused on software development, Lean thinking began and continues to benefit many industries. The continuity between all three provides an ever-evolving set of definitions that is, in and of itself, in a state of constant improvement.

State of DevOps [2019]

The Current State of DevOps

As we complete its first decade, we find there are many reports available on the subject of the current state of DevOps. Most take some time to explain that there is no destination for us to reach with DevOps, that DevOps is a perpetually continuing construct, and that DevOps is a major part of your “digital transformation”. Many of these offer the parochial, self-service opinions of specific software providers and all the solutions and improvements may be obtained by using their products.

Infrastructure as Code is Critical to Success With DevOps

Posted by Tiempo Development
Apr 28, 2019 9:45:33 AM

What Is Infrastructure as Code?

When using Infrastructure as Code (IaC) you replace hardware and the related configuration, deployment, and management processes with software to provision and run data centers.

In a DevOps environment that joins together development and operations it is only fitting that operations use more of the tools of the developers to improve their flexibility, scalability, and control. It is just as appropriate that the underlying infrastructure on which everything runs follow similar software-based methodology, with the same DevOps goal of achieving continuous improvement.

Implementing DevOps: Adopting and Adapting to a Culture of Collaboration

DevOps Implementation is an Ongoing and Never Ending Process

 Since a major goal of DevOps is to create an environment of continuous improvement through continuous development, the implementation of any DevOps initiative must be seen as an ongoing, never-ending process that impacts far more than just any one given project. It bcomes a unifying way in which the various departments within a company learn to collaborate more effectively.

The greatest challenge for those approaching the implementation of DevOps in their organization will be the need for patience. The concept of constant iterative change is not readily or easily embraced. It involves constant evaluation, which can be anathema to many members of the team. Actions are viewed and taken with far greater granularity. The initiative must start small and prove itself, then be distributed organically with full buy-in from each department that becomes involved. Then there’s the other challenge:
