One question

Q: What’s one of the biggest hurdles to implementing DevOps in an enterprise?

A: DevOps requires much tighter collaboration between stakeholders who aren’t typically used to working collaboratively: the strategy team, the application dev team, the operations team, and so on. All these different siloed operations need to be fully integrated. So there’s significant transformation from a people and organization perspective, as well as from a cultural and governance perspective. It doesn’t happen overnight. For some large organizations, it may take a year or longer to fully embrace DevOps. But the greater agility benefits are worth it, particularly when it comes to mobile development.
