Where Agile Development Fails: IT Operations

01:15 PM Washington

Agile developers want fast and frequent deployments. IT operations teams want stability. There are other tensions between development and operations. Software often is developed in one environment, then run in another. Agile tends to focus on testing to confirm that the desired business functionality has been produced but can overlook difficult-to-test attributes, such as scalability, reliability, and ability to sustain peak load performance--attributes prized in operations.   Thus agile development, which has been so successful at connecting the once isolated developer to his business user, has tended to alienate the operations team. DevOps is trying to extend the gains made with meeting business users' needs to operations' needs.   This presentation will give you the insight on DevOps and how you can use it to bring your Agile Development process to the next level to include IT operations.
