A Well-Defined DevOps Strategy Could Resolve the Disconnect between Application Developers and IT Operations
In the ever-evolving landscape of IT, there is a growing rift between application development groups and traditional IT operations (DevOps). This disconnect, often generated by conflicting priorities and methodologies, poses a significant obstacle for many organizations. The DevOps approach, designed to harmonize these disparate factions, is increasingly embraced by development groups. Yet, a comprehensive tool to bring these principles into synergy with IT operations remains largely elusive. Many C-level executives don’t know what DevOps strategy, and a 2021 survey from Devops.com revealed that only 11% of respondents said their organizations have fully integrated DevOps strategy and practices, highlighting the urgency of this issue.
What if there was a way to bridge this gap and harmonize the often discordant objectives of IT operations and application development teams? How might such an offering revolutionize productivity and redefine operational efficiency?
