Accelerating DevOps maturity for digital transformation


2m read time




The widespread adoption of cloud computing has enabled extraordinary value to organisations of all types and sizes, in terms of flexibility and agility that prepare them to grow and change in whatever direction opportunities dictate. To go deeper and unlock the true potential of cloud transformation, traditional silos between development and IT operations must be broken down, to embrace DevOps and increase communication, speed and innovation.

Uncover the deeper cloud opportunity

Implementing DevOps at scale is the challenge of the day for many IT shops. Emerging industry best practices include the following series of recommendations for enabling DevOps-powered digital transformation:

  • Establish pipeline management. As DevOps tools proliferate in the organisation, the associated pipelines must be unified to provide single-pane-of-glass management and avoid security and compliance risks.
  • Integrate AI and automation. Managing IT operations for big data is too large and complex a task for manual human-oriented processes. Build AI and automation into workflows to bring them under control.
  • Accelerate cultural transformation. The biggest barriers to DevOps are operational, not technical. Address them in terms of breaking down information silos, building cooperation and fostering executive support.
