Operations – The Last Mile for DevOps

Damon Edwards, Co-Founder of Rundeck, Inc., the popular open source self-service operations platform, points out how much energy in DevOps has been about activities that start in Dev and move towards Ops, seeing deployment as kind of a finish line. But what comes after deployment?

Organizations seem to struggle with fundamentally transforming how they operate due to various siloed, ticket-driven, low-trust and centralized practices that have been accepted in Operations for far too long. According to Edwars, in order to align together and reach the holistic agility of speed that everybody has been looking for, we need to give Ops the same level of attention and transformation that we have on the Dev side.
