In both the presentation and Q&A portion of the webcast, John Jeremiah provides practical tips to help make the DevOps transformation a smoother experience.
When you’re able to work collaboratively and have visibility across the full lifecycle, you can think about how to build concurrently. That way you can have teams work on multiple issues in parallel so that they’re no longer constrained by silos and lack of visibility. You’ll be able to move at a much, much faster pace. It’s a liberating mindset to work collaboratively across the full lifecycle rather than having to wait and wait and wait for handoffs.
DevOps is about a cultural aligning of goals and KPIs so that people can work collaboratively. It’s also about removing barriers and roadblocks so that people can work faster and have a common view and discussion to unify behind. Having a single source of truth where you can have traceability and visibility across the lifecycle helps you streamline processes and enable teams to work efficiently.
Being able to shift left is an important capability. If you can identify performance and security issues as soon as they happen and are introduced into the code, you have a chance to fix them.
