How new practices, technologies, and players are shaking up DevOps

Part of the Architecting the Cloud podcast series

Despite being a relatively new practice, DevOps is already experiencing big changes. New disciplines, consolidation among vendors, and competition to introduce new, better technologies are making DevOps an exciting place to be right now–and in the future.

It’s a great—if uncertain—time to be in DevOps right now

Even though the concept of DevOps is relatively new, there are big changes afoot in the field, and it’s hard keep up with all of them. New disciplines, such as software delivery management, promise to rein in the wild-west atmosphere DevOps has spawned at some companies. Consolidation of companies and tool-sets—especially with PaaS vendors—is ramping up, and vendors are competing to rapidly develop new technologies. It’s an exciting time to be in DevOps! In this episode of the podcast, Mike Kavis and guest, Sacha Labourey of CloudBees, discuss some of the latest changes in the DevOps domain and break down their potential implications for the future of software delivery—and for entrenched, dominant technologies such as Kubernetes.

Everybody wants to have the relationship with developers. Developers are the one having an impact in this new software era.

Sacha Labourey is CEO and founder of CloudBees, builders of the world’s first end-to-end automated software delivery system. Prior to founding CloudBees, Sacha was CTO at JBoss and, prior to that, he founded his own consulting firm, Cogito Informatique.
