Each year Puppet releases an annual report surrounding the analysis of the DevOps trends, the State of DevOps Report. Our Technology Director, David Njogu has created a summary on the key takeaways you can’t afford to miss.
DevOps has been making waves in organisations across the world, both big and small, since its inception in 2009. Now, in 2016 it is a driving force in creating the change that IT practices must achieve to stay competitive.
Since the beginning of QA Consulting and Puppet’s partnership at the beginning of 2015, our DevOps practice has gone from strength to strength. Puppet have been influential in shaping the DevOps movement and they continue to be a dominant force in DevOps space. That being said, Puppet is still seen as a young technology, having been around for only 11 years, and finding skilled and experienced DevOps capability in the market place is a mission in itself.
At the 2016 QA Symposium we learnt a lot about DevOps from our technical lead David Wilcox.
The session was designed to give an overview of some of the key themes in the DevOps movement today and to introduce consultants to the cultural changes needed to implement DevOps practice. The session was largely focused on demonstrating the software which now forms the DevOps toolset in 2016.
