There’s plenty of “fake news” from the software industry, so beware of the DevOps lie.

There’s a lot of confusion – just follow the money to see why.

In this video I help you discover the real answer to “what is DevOps?”, and why it may not be working for you.

Though automated deployment technologies, cloud infrastructure, and other “fun” tools are exciting to talk about…

…DevOps is really about getting people to work together.

I hope this episode helps you understand the core reason why DevOps came to be, and how it’s a subset of Continuous Delivery.

Though both of these terms ultimately seek to allow your company to release quicker (and more often) – I’ve seen them fail when gone about the wrong way.

You can help your company achieve the promises of DevOps by following the tips in this episode.

If you can help others answer the question “what is DevOps?” correctly – you can help your company achieve the cross-functional teamwork necessary.
