  14. 14. 14 Goals that lead to DevOps 1. Customer-centric focus on software products – learning, design 2. The pipeline is the factory, from concept, to code, to production 3. Delivering software that runs on the Internet (mobile, web, etc.) 4. Faster turns, while maintaining quality, uptime, performance – Lean approach to entire process – Shorten time to customer value – Keep the site up, resilience vs. failure Tactic: combine Development & Operations Sources: see The Practice of Cloud System Administration, chapter 8 for an in-depth definition and discussion. Also, see Damon Edward's 2012 piece "Use DevOps to Turn IT into a Strategic Weapon.” Also, The Phoenix Project for a story of DevOps in the style of The Goal.
