Problem In Moving To Agile DevOps Environment

Many companies are now attempting to move into an agile DevOps environment but are struggling in that process. I believe the struggle is because they implement part of the journey but not all of it. Consequently, they often fall short of the desired result.

Companies see the benefits of moving into moving into an agile environment and benefits of adopting DevOps. They recognize they need to invest in a set of technologies, whether it’s automated tests, self-provisioning or work planning tools. They believe if they buy the technologies, people will learn to use them, and the company will get benefits. The technologies are necessary, but the fact is they are not sufficient.

Likewise, they recognize the need to invest in training in agile methodologies and processes. They recruit and bring in new talent that is familiar with agile to help train and guide the old talent.
