All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the works because of misaligned incentives.
Many organizations are now looking to DevOps maturity models to gauge their DevOps adoption and compare their maturity to their peers. However, as enterprise organizations rush to adopt DevOps, moving past experimentation to embrace it at scale, they are in danger of falling into the trap that they have fallen into time and time again.
Unfortunately, we’ve seen this movie before, and we know how it ends: badly.
DevOps is good for organizations. According to the soon to be released State of DevOps Report high-performing IT organizations are 2X more likely to exceed profitability, market share, and productivity goals. But how do they do it? How do they use DevOps to drive value and differentiate their companies?
We recently sat down with Nicole Forsgren, CEO and Chief Scientist at DORA (DevOps Research and Assessment) and lead investigator for the State of DevOps Report, to discuss the role of measurement in DevOps Success. From years of research into DevOps operations and culture, Forsgren and her colleagues have found that success depends on improving two key outcomes—speed and stability. These, she says, are crucial for driving improvement in organizational performance and value.
IoT in connected Government helps to deliver better citizen services and provides transparency. It helps in delivering contextual and personalized service to citizens, enhances the security, and improves the quality of life.

As today’s digital disruptions bounce and smash their way through conventional technologies and conventional wisdom alike, predicting their path is a multifaceted challenge. So many areas of technology advance on Moore’s Law-like exponential curves that divining the future is fraught with danger. Such is the problem with artificial intelligence (AI), and its related concepts, including cognitive computing, machine learning, and deep learning.

As the true definition of hybrid cloud continues to blur, eight out of 10 enterprises in a survey from Stratoscale say they avoid running sensitive data in the public cloud.
The results appear in the company’s Hybrid Cloud Survey, which was conducted in June and features more than 600 responses from organisations at varying sizes.
According to the research, almost four in five (77%) respondents define the value of the hybrid cloud in one of two ways, depending on how far advanced their adoption is. In enterprises with hybrid cloud adoption level below 20%, hybrid is most frequently defined as ‘the ability to move workloads between private and public cloud’, but as it exceeds 20%, the concept moves to one of ‘different workloads belonging in different public and private environments’.
More than 80% of enterprises polled said they had either moderate or high levels of concern around public cloud lock-in, with the smallest companies – those with less than 100 employees – the most concerned. More than half of enterprises have also moved less than one fifth of their workloads to the public cloud, with smaller firms the furthest into their journey, with large companies having more users who start but a much slower pace of progress.
“The transformation to a ‘digital business’ by implementing cloud services and platforms is no longer much of an option – it’s an imperative for the continued survival of any enterprise,” said Ariel Maislos, Stratoscale CEO in a statement. “The findings from our survey confirm what we’re hearing from our customers – although many have started their journey to the public cloud, the vast majority of companies are still running mission critical workloads and sensitive data in private solutions, primarily for security reasons.
“It’s clear the hybrid cloud model represents the near and long-term future for most enterprises, regardless of size,” Maislos added.
The lack of consensus around the definition of hybrid cloud is reminiscent of a study conducted by Clutch at the start of this year regarding DevOps, where not even a quarter of respondents could agree on a definitive meaning for the term.
