#DOES15DevOps Enterprise Summit DevOps Enterprise is THE event for people who are bringing Lean principles into the IT value stream
Gene Kim
What do you think is most underappreciated about #DevOps in large, complex organizations?
Michael Valentin
the need for culture and organizational structure change
ali alladin
Grappling with integrating legacy applications
Matt Cowger
the morale improvements.
Halie Noble
that things worth doing are hardly ever easy.
Carmen DeArdo
Understanding how DevOps builds on top of Lean and Agile to facilitate variable speed IT is a key awareness in understanding how to structure a DevOps program
Brian Gracely
the need to have common terminology, goals, measurements between teams that didn't in the past. finding consensus is difficult.
Ross Clanton
Definitely culture.... mindsets of your people and how they work together need to be oriented to get value out of DevOps.
Carmen DeArdo
Culture is a key component - also reducing variance in practices create patterns which can be automated
Michael Valentin
Agree with Carmen. I've heard that DevOps doesn't require Agile.
Gene Kim
I rewatched @ScottPrugh talking about the work he's done for a 30 yr old COBOL app and the surrounding tech platforms
Claudia Ring
successfully balancing security/governance with speed
Jan-Joost Bouwman
Culture. You can't just rename your teams to DevOps teams and tell them they are 'doing Agile'. You have to live it and stick with it.
Dr. Tapabrata Pal
Most under appreciated (or overlooked?): Change in mindset
Carmen DeArdo
@JanJoostBouwman agree - Agile is really the middle of the Delivery Value Stream - you have to address both the upstream planning and flow and downstream automation
William Judd
Definition of work. Rigor across the board.
Michael Valentin
most execs just don't understand the notion of "fail fast"
Damon Edwards
Management actions created conditions for these problems & only rethinking management can fix it. Everything else is addressing symptoms.
Scott Prugh
Culture changes and getting teams to collaborate is much more difficult at scale than people recognize.
Evgeny Zislis
people are not keeping an open-mind about changing old habits -- leading to some comic effect instead of valuable change.
JP Schneider
Anytime an org is "doing DevOps", it's undervalued because once you are doing it, it's so simple and "duh" that it seems easy. Before you are "doing DevOps", it seems epically impossible. DevOps, when done right, is inherently undervalued. Hi Gene!
botchagalupe
Kata... vision turns into culture...
Jesse Getzie
To take from the 2015 State of DevOps...HIGHER FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE..."both culture and IT performance predict organizational performance, so improvements in these areas lead to better outcomes — including higher financial performance"
Brent Nelson
that to succeed you need to very intentional in growing the culture
Gene Kim
Hi, @jpschneider! :) Telling everyone about you on the #crowdchat call. :)
Gene Kim
Hi, @jdotp! :) Telling everyone about you on the #crowdchat call. :)

What’s one thing you wish you would have told yourself before starting on your #DevOps journey?
Jeremy Douglas
start small, aim big!
Carmen DeArdo
That we were on a DevOps Journey :-) Most of us started with DevOps practices like continuous integration, Agile before we realized that this was just part of the story of optimizing the delivery value stream
Thomas A. McGonagle
I wish I had spent less time on the tooling, and more time getting ready for the cultural changes required to lead a DevOps effort
botchagalupe
@DOESsummDon't let your passion sound like arrogance ..
Ross Clanton
Don't fight stupid.... Make more Awesome!
Tim Crawford
#DevOps spans far beyond just the Dev & Ops teams...and far beyond just IT too. Engage the ecosystem.
Damon Edwards
"DevOps is about tools like Astronomy is about telescopes" (I think @cshl1)
Michael Valentin
@mcgonagle what culture change readiness strategies would you suggest?
Halie Noble
@JerDoug Right? "Shoot for the moon, even if you miss you'll land among the stars!"
botchagalupe
@damonedwards laying it down dude.. :)
DevOps Donald Trump
@RealGeneKim don't foRget to vOte for me! I'm going to MAKE DEVOPS GREAT AGAIN! #devops
Dr. Tapabrata Pal
That it's going to be a while.
Sam Fell
@tcrawford Agree - It should be called DevDesignQABizDevProfsMarketingSalesFinanceSecurityOps
Nikhil Vaze
We always talk about leveling up technical skills. This will require leveling up people skills: patience, understanding etc.
Scott Prugh
@therealnikhil Leadership needs to take a big part in this and enable collaboration across the roles. The best example the leaders can show is that collaboration matters.
Thomas A. McGonagle
Michael, for me personally it would be leadership skills, IT strategy skills, innovation skills, business development skills, sales skills, marketing skills. All of which I think would make me a more effective cultural change agent.
DevOps Donald Trump
It’s important to uniquely morph sustainable users to holisticly grow cost effective results. This will help
assertively unleash backward-compatible technologies and completely streamline fungible networks. #REALTALK
#DOES19 Las Vegas
What are the myths around #DevOps and #ContinuousDelivery that need to be debunked?
Evgeny Zislis
that there is a "devops person" and a "devops team". Can't stand hearing these things anymore. Also put "devops tool" into that fire as well.
Sam Fell
“CD is only for web companies.” Embedded software benefits from being kept in a “releasable state,” too!
Carmen DeArdo
One myth is that Two/Variable Speed IT is something you do differently rather than the fact is a product of implementing solid Continuos Delivery Practices
Jan-Joost Bouwman
it is not the silver bullit and CD is NOT easy. It is hard work!
Ben Grinnell
It's not for 'systems of record'
Ross Clanton
it's only for the unicorns
Evgeny Zislis
That CD is done using tool named "X". Looking at technology/tools vs. looking at process, and it is damn hard to explain the difference to some people.
Damon Edwards
Faulty thinking that #DevOps and #ContinuousDelivery are the same thing
Halie Noble
@damonedwards Ack! That would be a dilemma! How do you deal?
Ross Clanton
I hate 2 speed IT... It automatically puts people in a mindset that they don't need to change if they aren't in the 'digital speed' category
Evgeny Zislis
that infrastructure/architecture/cd can be improved/changed with absolutely zero monitoring. And then when monitoring is suggested, it is said that it is a low-priority, and "just fix it like this, don't install monitoring"...
Damon Edwards
@RossClanton Probably the most detrimental and demoralizing concept floating around right now
Brian Gracely
@Ben_Grinnell can you elaborate on that. many people think systems of record don't deal with frequently-changing-environments well.
Michael Valentin
that service virtualization will cure all of our problems
Ben Grinnell
It increases risk!
Damon Edwards
@RossClanton Bi-Modal IT = 1. Gives excuse for bad practices 2. faulty logic that speed must mean low quality
Steve Chambers
it's not about doing releases every five minutes, it's about having the system and confidence to successfully release when required
Carmen DeArdo
@RossClanton exactly - it's like a car that only has 2 speeds - who would buy that?
Scott Prugh
@RossClanton Arghhhh.... There is no 2 speed IT. This just exacerbates the problem... That's like saying there should be slow/bad parts of the factory and fast/lean parts.
