Whilst many enterprises are adopting a DevOps approach, large, complex, and regulated IT shops have a different perspective on both development and operations -- especially when it comes to anything that touches existing 'legacy' applications. They cannot:
• Achieve the same levels of agility and personal responsibility as a smaller or less complex organisation. • Stream new code into production and just shut down for a couple of hours to fallback if it fails. • Allow developers to access raw production data, let alone copy it to their laptop for development or testing. • Put developers and operators together because one team works 24×7 shifts in 7 data centers, while the other works 16-hour days in 12 different locations.
The complexity within large enterprises requires more extensive planning, as it must accommodate more moving parts. They also have very different security and compliance requirements. Audit and Compliance at a large public company will be highly disapproving of any developer who has full access to code, infrastructure and data in both test and production, for example.
This webinar will highlight five key considerations if you are involved in rolling out "Big DevOps" across a large organisation.
