How DevOps Can Make or Break Your Team:

Implementing a successful DevOps strategy can unlock the true potential of a software team and help companies adapt to agile ways of working. However, many companies, regardless of their size or status, fall into common traps when it comes to incorporating DevOps principles into daily practices. These include, but are not limited to, slow feedback loops, difficulties in collaboration due to abstractions and handoffs, and the struggle to balance automation with necessary control. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to understand risk tolerances within an organisation to facilitate change and to take a more experimental and iterative approach in adopting DevOps principles.

Some of the topics covered in this episode include:

  • Strategies and best practices for adopting DevOps
  • Challenges in DevOps practices across different organisation sizes.
  • System Initiative's innovative approach to improving DevOps.
  • The potential impact of AI on software teams
