xtype’s Scott Willson highlights the parallels between the DevOps philosophy and digital transformation
Over the past 15 years or so, DevOps has broken down internal silos and transformed development practices. Of course, this didn't occur overnight. Many organizations struggled to understand that embracing DevOps wasn't simply a matter of purchasing development tools. Willson believes that today, many similarly misinterpret the purpose and goals of digital transformation."Phase one of the digital transformation wave had companies simply lift and shift their on-prem apps and infrastructure to the cloud. This failed for many reasons," he says. "Many organizations that are disappointed by these efforts may have had unrealistic expectations. The C suite is making the same mistakes that DevOps practitioners made initially by relying on tools to deliver outcomes rather than doing the hard work of actual transformation."
