In 2001, 17 software practitioners met to discuss several different methodologies for programming. Out of this meeting came the Agile Manifesto, a new methodology for software development which challenged the idea of traditional sequential development.
DevOps is short for Development and Operations. It is
based on the principles of LEAN and Agile. Although there
is much speculation about how to successfully deploy
DevOps, do not make a mistake and ignore it. It is the
future of IT.
There are many different ways to transition to agile, and each
organization must choose the right format, the right leaders, and the right
methods to suit their contextual business. If agile methods are to be truly accepted
at any organization, the four Cs: Change, Culture, Communication, and Cost,
will be critical to its success.
