Abstract

Companies with high-performing IT organizations are twice as likely to exceed their profitability, market share and productivity goals. These are impressive results which every business would like to accomplish before competitors beat them to it. Only a minority of enterprises are achieving high-performance DevOps implementations. Many are struggling to realize DevOps at all, at the level of business units and enterprise. An engineering approach for businesses and enterprises to implement DevOps, at the business or enterprise level meets specific business transformation goals in the fastest time with the least cost and without false starts. An engineering approach which leads to DevOps success quickly and without false starts will be presented. A unique one-of-a-kind physical model of an electro-mechanical DevOps machine and results of DevOps pipeline software simulations will be displayed and used to demonstrate the principles of DevOps stage optimizations.
