Your DevOps Goal: A Culture Shift, Not Just a Toolset Implementation

Add to calendar

Becoming a DevOps shop isn’t just about hiring DevOps engineers and implementing a new toolset. It’s about changing the culture of your organization. Patrick Turner believes that your focus for DevOps should be to bring a cultural shift throughout the organization—up to the business team and down to product delivery. Focusing on the culture shift of DevOps creates faster innovation. And all of this enables transparency in this process for those who have not had visibility in the past and encourages transparency for those who have worked behind the curtain of complexity that has obscured it. DevOps breaks down silos and connects people. The DevOps culture and tools extend agile's transparency and efficiency, and help streamline communication and collaboration, ensuring that the team is creating the best product possible—a product that you’d be proud to show your mom!
