DevOps is the answer to the growing complexity and speed of (web) application development. Driven by the faster moving markets and Agile development approach the differences of the development and operations divisions grew. While the development teams where asked to deliver more functionality faster, the operations teams had to make sure things were stable, high available, secure and performant. While both teams see the importance of all requirements, when an integrated approach is missing, the requirements are conflicting.
Historically development and operations are seen and managed as two separate divisions, this growing complexity asks for a better co-operation and integrated approach. There are various ways two departments can improve collaboration and since both departments are technically skilled they tend to start with tools that enable them to work together. However, this is only part of the solution, there also has to be a culture that enables them to collaborate.
This presentation elaborates on how to get two different departments working together and build a culture to foster co-operation and innovation.
