Jan 2019 – DevOps Agenda

by Christopher Little  |  January 9, 2019  |  2 Comments

Greetings  2019!

Here we are in the new year and the 2019 plan looks very exciting for Gartner’s DevOps agenda. The 2019 DevOps Primer will be out in a bit (scheduled for early February and on track) with many more insights and details about what’s to come and why.  In short, we will see research on DevOps around a range of themes such as AI, selling to the CFO, Testing in Production, and more.

DOTC vendors

We will also be revisiting essential materials (including graphics)  in refreshing existing research. For example, we will need to update the listings on the DevOps Toolchain.  We last touched these diagrams in late summer 2017 and will do so again in 2019. The world changes so quickly a good number of these example vendors don’t exist by these names anymore or have otherwise changed in some fashion.

Welcome to IT — welcome to change!

I wanted to summarize several links to some great, recent Peer & Practitioner Research on DevOps. Here are four documents I want to make sure you’re aware of:

⇨  Top DevOps Questions Answered  – This report answers the top 11 DevOps questions our researchers and executive advisors have encountered from heads of applications and infrastructure functions. IT leaders will find here key lessons, real-world case study examples and cross-industry advice to overcome DevOps challenges.

⇨  Ignition Guide to Creating a DevOps Team Dashboard – As I&O leaders scale DevOps, they struggle to find the right metrics to assess DevOps teams’ effectiveness and guide continuous improvement. This research identifies metrics that I&O leaders can use to track DevOps teams’ progress toward business goals and identify areas for improvement.

⇨  Ignition Guide to Creating and Communicating a DevOps Strategy – Most I&O leaders agree DevOps can improve speed to market and deliver business value faster, but are unclear how to implement the required people, process and technology changes. This research explains how to create and communicate a DevOps strategy to meet your business and IT priorities.

⇨   Ignition Guide to Managing a DevOps Toolchain – Most I&O leaders agree DevOps can improve speed to market and deliver business value faster, but are unclear how to implement the required people, process and technology changes. This research explains how to create and communicate a DevOps strategy to meet your business and IT priorities.

Welcome to what promises to be a fantastic 2019!!!

Stay tuned!

Best, c

Thoughts on Jan 2019 – DevOps Agenda


  1. Chad Thibodeau says:

    Christopher,

    I’m sorry that I missed the initial release of your 2019 DevOps content. From the preview, it looks like some great research and was wondering if you would be willing to provide a preview of any of the “Ignition Guides” or 2019 DevOps Primer? Thanks for your continued work in this area–I’m very excited to begin the education and implementation of DevOps within Medtronic!

      If you are a client, feel free to schedule an inquiry with me and I’d be happy to walk you through all of the research for the agenda!
