We live in interesting times. If I were to chart the increase in the number of customers asking for help with DevOps, that chart would look like a hockey stick, that same kind of hockey stick our CFOs are always dreaming of. If I added another line on the chart for the percentage of those companies that actually knew what DevOps was, it would be a flat line at the lower coordinates of the chart. What we are seeing is that everyone wants DevOps, but not everyone knows why or exactly what DevOps means.
Head over to my column at The Virtualization Practice to see my thoughts on what the true value of DevOps is in the enterprise and what has changed in today’s architectures that is driving the movement towards DevOps.
