The Data on DevOps - Making the Case for Awesome
What’s the value proposition of DevOps? Does culture change show up in the bottom line? What practices predict high IT performance? We hear many stories to inspire and inform us, but the plural of anecdote is not data. Let’s dive into the research and find out which DevOps practices drive optimal IT and business outcomes.
The data shows that the best IT performers have the highest throughput and reliability while contributing to organizational profitability, productivity, and market share goals. Industry trends around security, containers, continuous delivery, and lean management relate to IT performance and quality: let’s talk about how.
Management and practitioners alike will leave with a better understanding of how to achieve the best outcomes, while armed with the data they need to make the case for change.
Enabling agility at scale for the heavily regulated
ING reorganized IT five times to increase agility and speed. After going agile/scrum for application development 6 years ago, ING restructured the IT department in 180 agile DevOps teams. Then, ING integrated the commercial colleagues in >400 self-organizing squads (BizDevOps) inspired by Spotify’s organizational model.
Two years ago ING radically changed the people’s approach for software engineers to enable and reward engineering mastery. Last year, ING restructured the infrastructure department empowering the engineers more. The last step is to implement an engineer centric control framework and fine-tune deployment pipelines to remove IT Risk related manual work and wait times.
ING is convinced that in order to go fast, engineers need to be in control. Full stack. Such changes require a lot of learning from everybody involved.
