DevOps is starting to attract mainstream attention, but there is still confusion about what DevOps is and what it takes to have a successful DevOps initiative. Some companies have tried to automate their way to DevOps success; many others are trying to stay true to the core DevOps CAMS (Culture, Automation, Measurement, Sharing) principles. Unfortunately, most information available is related more to web 2.0 companies than more complex enterprise environments.
These stories are starting to emerge with more enterprise-friendly content and are being presented at DevOps-related conferences. Unfortunately, many organizations can’t afford to wait for lots of successful enterprise DevOps use cases to be published. Although admittedly, they might not know that they don’t have time!
