10 Best Practices for DevOps

10 Best Practices for DevOps

More enterprise IT shops are embracing a devops philosophy, which promotes closer collaboration between developers and IT operations staff. Scott W. Ambler from Dr. Dobb’s says that these 10 practices can help organizations realize devops goals like more effective teamwork, smoother operations and cleaner code:

  1. Active stakeholder participation
  2. Automated testing
  3. Integrated configuration management
  4. Integrated change management
  5. Continuous integration
  6. Integrated deployment planning
  7. Continuous deployment
  8. Production support
  9. Application monitoring
  10. Automated dashboards

He concludes by noting, “I feel the need to emphasize that the primary critical success factor is to build a collaborative and respectful culture across your entire IT organization. My experience is that people, and the way that they work together, are the primary determinant of success when it comes to adopting an effective DevOps strategy. Unfortunately, it is considerably more difficult to bring about cultural change in an organization than it is to adopt a handful of new practices.”
