Re: DevOps Potholes
@Mike, great insight and analysis.  I agree that there are potholes and that we are making "incremental" progress but stopping short of true transformation to new solutions that fully integrate development and operations.  It is as if we are still developing with the same designs and wanting a different result.

You have identified one key barrier, the culture.  The other is the "new learning" that has to take place to truly integrate the knowledge in both and design a true DevOps solution - which is more optimal.

I think this also confirms that we are still deploying technology from a sole capability standpoint, and missing the opportunity to deliver new solutions - that can only take place through true DevOps.  We want to swim the ocean without leaving shore.

Isn't that what, in fact, Transformation is supposed to be?  We have to risk--but it appears that the Poll indicates otherwise.

Re: DevOps Potholes
@mpouraryan, well there you go - exactly!  We want new benefits and new opportunities without risk - so we are holding on to the limits of what already exists.

The leaders will be those who truly create the future!

We seem to be "stuck" in neutral, though.  There lies the challenge right now.     How do we sustain the revolutionary spirit that began it all?

Re: DevOps Potholes
@mpouraryan, good thoughts - that's where leading companies and visionaries come in!  As with anything, you have 1/3 that will be leaders, 1/3 that will join the leaders, and 1/3 that will lag and have to be convinced.

So I believe the leaders will, and are, learning the new opportunities and will transform the processes.  The others will follow and/or lag.

@mpouraryan, true.  I think they are finding us in that there is an impressive community with Telco Transformation and the companies that are leading the way (i.e., Huawei, AT&T, Cisco, etc.).  So we are in good company!

And good bloggers!

As we await the "fateful day" that some say is critixal to Apple, here is a perspective on it for all to enjoy:

Never a dull moment in our ever changing "transformational" world, is there ?

..sorry to be a bother..one more bit of a "newsflash" that just crossed my desk from "the land down under"....as we await "zero hour" from Apple:

This is why Apple will drop headphone jack


Apple wants to reinvent the iPhone with a totally cordless, portless design. But they have to get you used to the idea first.

@mpouraryan my Twitter feed is filled with Apple news. I saw that the additional black is just identified as black. This indicates they likely have no women on the product development who are used to all sorts of names for colors from fashion, makeup, and paint names.

Although it is fun to "virtually attend it", it is not as "earth shattering"..although the camera is cool--and although they claim that Digital SLR..... in addition to the stuff on Audio...as it is now official: they've removed it the "jack"...and they're saying, it is "courage"..and they're saying they want to deliver it all in a seamless "wireless' experience....

I guess no more selfie sticks...as they're showing us Apple "Air Pods"....cool design.... :) :)

Since we're talking transformation--the folks in the Apple Ecosystem will have some "rethinking to do"--for instance, one company is OlloClip that will have a challenge to be "around"--32 Gb/128 Gb/256 GB sizes...at $ 649 for the base model.....

Anyway, as I said, proof in the numbers!!!!

Here is the bigger question that I hope all with TT have a chance to reflect upon:  Why we are so impatient?   Why are we so not impressed?   I also underscore this because a recent story on Netflix (something we deliberated last month) asked the question about the kind of company it wants to be--it seems as if keeping people excited about it.....

Re: DevOps Potholes
@mpouraryan, now you are thinking!  (many don't like to do that!)

That's the real separation in leadership with those who truly lead transformations, they are willing to build new results.  Others prefer to quickest path to results.  Real leadership makes a difference in the long run.

Reflogging my favorite horse
Because I'm really not totally sure he's dead yet ...

A model very like DevOps is already there in some of the contemporary data-science oriented programming languages, most notably R.  If I've got a gigantic database, and R and the skills for it (and a machine fast and capacious enough), you can ask almost anything and if the answer is latent in the database, I can hand type a sequence of commands, executing each as I go, and get you that one-time answer. If you ask me the same question several times in a row, I can go back to my recordings of my process, paste directly from the recordings into an executable file, and voila! program.

Or in short, all the work I did on the one-off version (which is ops) is immediately transferable to the now-to-be-standard-forever app (which is dev).

It should be added that this works brilliantly in practice.


DevOps is just the rest of the industry catching up with data analytic software ... another case of a good trick that proves extremely contagious.

DMHagar, In many ways it is just AI getting more human; instead of a human figuring out the whole task and coding it, the machine just records and copies what the people do until it can do the job by itself. Less and less like programming a machine and more and more like training an apprentice.

@JohnBarnes, the advancements in machine learning will also open up the door to new users; like the PC opened the door to new users of computers - beyond the previous use dependent on mainframes.

Which makes us wonder how far the machine intelligence/human intelligence can advance us?

The culture of the organization will trump all. If there's not a tipping point of "devops" people, the fad will come and go -- and revert back to whatever worked "good enough" in the past.
