Why tools are not enough for DevOps?
A lot of big companies want to buy DevOps the same way they used to buy databases, application servers, platforms and sometimes even private clouds. However, as our experience shows, the tools themselves don’t change anything inside the organization, because DevOps has to embrace the whole process of your software delivery starting from the idea and ending in a working application in production. Even though we cannot deny the importance of tools (which we’ll also talk about), the cultural change of an organization, the ability to make organizational changes play a way more important role. The digital transformation has started and I’ll show you how this process looks like in the Russian enterprise companies which include many of our clients.
