Using DevOps principles to bring change to the enterprise
Part of the Architecting the Cloud podcast series
DevOps is well known for increasing collaboration between application development and operations. Savvy organizations are now leveraging the ethos behind DevOps to foster teamwork, train employees on new processes, and implement change throughout the enterprise.
DevOps grows up: Taking DevOps beyond the Dev and Ops teams
DevOps. It’s development and operations in collaboration. It’s IT teamwork at its best, right? Yes, but it's morphing into more than just Dev and Ops. In this episode, Mike Kavis and Comcast Senior Director of Client Entertainment Technology Michael Winslow, talk about how DevOps is moving beyond the cooperation of Dev and Ops to help foster and manage collaboration and change at the enterprise level. Michael gives his perspective on how to implement those changes: start small and apply a team mentality to rolling out those changes and training your people. They also discuss DevOps in the time of COVID and how companies are adapting DevOps to a remote working environment. The pair also talk about Winslow's efforts at increasing diversity in the DevOps–and wider technology–field.

Cloud implementations often stall because of cultural issues. To achieve better outcomes and realize more value from cloud, build a culture underpinned by trust and collaboration.
Doing DevOps right requires changing the organizational culture to build a joint-responsibility model based on outcomes and value.
