December 2018 – DevOps Agenda

by Christopher Little  |  December 4, 2018  |  Submit a Comment

Hello again,

We’re now into our busy conference season and IOCS is the first week of December.  As I’m writing this, that will be next week.

LSC37_366362_osI’ll be presenting a couple of new decks that are based on research we’ve done and published this year.

First one is about managing your DevOps toolchain.  In this presentation I’ll get into some of the systemic things that have fascinated me for awhile about toolchains.  I’ll cover flow and dwell and other related metrics.  It will be a introductory presentation of the core KPIs around toolchain performance.

My second presentation will be about the experience I&O has when a Development group goes Agile and the top three things they need to do about it immediately. LSC37_366368 Even if they just hear about a group adopting Agile, they need to jump on it quickly.  Knowing what is going to happen when Development adopts Agile Methodology gives I&O a leg up in anticipating needs and activities.

As to research, we’ve had some pipeline production issues with two November notes which pushed them into December.  December is a very slow readership month for us at Gartner, primarily due to the back-to-back holidays absorbing basically the second half of the month.

That said, the first quarter of 2019 is going to have some great research in it also, including the DevOps Primer for 2019 with an all new, more accessible format!

If I don’t see you at IOCS in Vegas or on an inquiry or briefing this month, I wish you have happy holidays and look forward to seeing you next year.
