  • A new model was required and
    To enable it, new principles supported by training and new tools were required
    DevOps (DevTest)
    Optimize the cycle from coding, testing, deploying etc.
    Cloud computing
  • Why the DevOps principles? Let’s look at the drivers and the « new » problem they are facing…
  • Why the DevOps principles? Let’s look at the drivers and the « new » problem they are facing…

    Short dev cycles meant frequent releasing
    Cost of manual deployments
    Cost of deployment errors
    Cost of ad hoc approval workflow
    Cost of manual tests or no test
    More techs while maintaining the legacy
    New tech challenges
    Increased variations
    Learning for the ops teams
    Spend less while doing more!
    Asked to do more
    Used to more
    Spend less
  • Let’s look at some of the lesson learned
    I’ve put the positive one first .
  • But it is still is not always a « sure win ».
  • Note: add arrow between the steps
    Maybe 5 between 3 – Lowest impact to just convert – learn the cloud and architecture needs (start with crawling, and then run) Only possible with Azure because of the hybrid possibility
    Dev and Test with Azure is typically part of an enterprise adoption strategy. Here are the typical steps and related services types.
    The jumpstart for DevTest cover the first two steps.


    Notes: Add DevOp

  • All of IT:
    Dev
    QA
    Ops and support: running the software
    Ops infrastructure specialist: managing the data centers, hardware management
    Leadership
  • It agility: Transform your IT organization
    Load testing : Take advantage of Azure and VS for load testing
    Dev and test with Azure: All stages in Azure up until pre-production/production
    Access the latest development tools in minutes: MSDN subscribers can use pre-configured VS 2013 Azure VM
    Accelerate your app dev with Azure services: Azure Web Sites, Mobile Services, Cloud Network Services, SQL Databases, and Azure Storage.
    VS Online: A lot of the on premise VS ans TFS advantage without the hassle



    The PaaS project: Develop your next app using Azure PaaS


  • What to do next?
  • Thank you!

  • 4. Big challenges – Increasing workload, new rules in IT Business pressure  Asked to do more  Used to more  Spend less Increased portfolio complexity  More techs and apps  More environments  “Old” and “new” Modern development methods  Faster dev cycle  More environments
  • 5. Common responses  More standardization  More control on spending  More virtualization  Work harder!
  • 6. But, it’s not enough. A new model is required.

  • 8. Why DevTest/DevOps? Automated build Release approval workflow Supportteam Tests automation Automated deployment Design with Ops in mind The solutions Modern development methods Increased portfolio complexity The drivers The problems Short dev cycles meant frequent releasing • Manual deployments • Deployment errors • Ad hoc approval • Manual tests or no test More techs while maintaining the legacy • New tech challenges • Increased variations • Learning for the ops teams Business Pressure Spend less while doing more! • Asked to do more • Used to more • Spend less
  • 9. Why with Cloud computing? The solutions Modern development methods Increased portfolio complexity The drivers The problems Short dev cycles meant frequent releasing • More environments • More teams • More tests automation and variations More techs while maintaining the legacy • More environments since more apps • More complexity (Dev and Ops) • Learning for the Ops teams Business Pressure Spend less while doing more! •Overburden IT Ops •Resources are too expensive •Data center cost is increasing Infrastructure management Realistic test environments Supportteam Application and environment monitoring Self and automated provisioning Azure pricing and benefits

  • 15. Why now?
  • 16. Lessons learned – Some strong points! “We deploy after each build and automated tests are run automatically. It enables us to find problems earlier and initial quality has increased significantly.”– a tester “Taking advantage of Azure, efforts spent on lower level activities like applying security patches are instead refocused on higher value services.” – an ops manager “We used to deliver a new version every 6 months. It was always painful and stressful. We now deliver automatically up to production almost every sprints.“– a dev manager “We’re more positioned to support the business and take advantage of the latest trends. Ultimately, it means survival in this very competitive market we are in.” – CIO “Developers now design with the production environment in mind. They can also test in a very similar setup. This has make my life so much easier.” – an ops specialist “I now have access to a realistic test environment on demand. It is no more necessary to share a lab and possibly lose precious test data.” – a developer
  • 17. Lessons learned – Common gotchas… “DevOps is a culture change. It is not always easy but is worth it overall.” – a dev manager “An incremental strategy is required as is coaching of the dev teams. Not all developers have the required knowledge to manage environments” – an ops manager “Limitations still exist around administration of VMs for example but most can be overcome by workarounds or acceptable compromises “– an ops specialist “DevOps with Azure is not a silver bullet. Migration of applications to use this model is not always worth it. You need to select carefully your investments – a developer “If not managed properly accounts and subscriptions can become unmanageable. Some guidelines and coaching are required” – an ops specialist
