Overcoming Traditional Dev and Ops Mindsets
In our fast-paced, digital economy, meeting customer expectations through continuous delivery of high-quality software is a must. Unfortunately, developers and IT operations teams traditionally work in their own silos toward separate goals that often conflict with one another, leading to a slower rate of software development and decreased quality.
Developers are focused on developing new solutions for constantly changing market trends, business goals, and customer needs. Operations teams, on the other hand, are focused on maintaining a stable, reliable, optimized infrastructure, and each new change brings additional challenges and risks that they must work hard to manage. While developers embrace change and are encouraged to create new apps and innovative features, operations teams see change as the enemy, because it threatens stability.
