Adopting a new capability requires a plan that includes people, process, and technology. Although the name DevOps suggests development- and operations-based way of working, DevOps is an enterprise capability that includes stakeholders, business owners, architecture, design, development, quality assurance (QA), operations, security, partners, and suppliers. Excluding any stakeholder will lead to incomplete implementation of DevOps.
Changes need to be made, but it is difficult to go against the usual flow and investments too are also required. But before you consider adopting new technology and methods, consider the challenges within your organization that that needs addressing. The expert practitioners and thought leaders at this DevOps Summit will give help you to develop your business case and build the foundation towards getting significant return on investment.

DevOps and Agile – how they align
Application lifecycle management (ALM) is a set of processes employed to manage the life of an application as it evolves from an idea (a business need) to an application that’s deployed and eventually under maintenance. Hence, looking at DevOps as an end-to-end business capability makes ALM part of the DevOps process.
Identifying business objectives: DevOps helps you to reach your goals.
A few specific practices that need to be include when adopting DevOps:
Continuous monitoring and feedback
Where does DevOps start and finish (from a process perspective)?
Where does ‘Operations’ sit in the ITIL model? All over the place? e.g. Service Transition?
Is co-location of resources necessary for successful DevOps?
TECHNOLOGY IN DEVOPS
A common set of tools allows teams to work anywhere, and new team members need to learn only one set of tools — a process that’s efficient, cost-effective, repeatable, and scalable.
