The DevOps Missing Link: Continuous Governance (CG)
Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) become central DevOps practices, as teams get up to speed with the approach – except for an essential missing element: governance.
Current approaches to governing software development and deployment processes in enterprise context tend to be prescriptive and non-Agile, serving only to stifle individual DevOps team from making continuous improvements.
Only by approaching governance from a Lean, Agile, and DevOps perspective, can modern enterprise software development teams hope to achieve the goals of DevOps while maintaining the checks and balances so important for the enterprise context
Outline/structure of the Session
Scaling DevOps: A complex domain problem
Governance through Automations: Gate Reviews to Guardrails
Continuous Governance (CG): missing link of CI-CD-CG
Implementing CG for teams: Applying data science using OODA loops
Achieving DevOps@scale: Using OODA at every level of organization.
Attendees will learn about how to:
- Measuring IT performance across Agile/DevOps teams and programs that use varied process and tool-chains to meet customer needs
- Using OODA (Observe, Orient, Decide and Act) loop at different levels to continuously learn and direct DevOps teams towards strategic goals
- Using insightful visualizations to guide practice improvements, which then can be automated as “process constraints” and “practitioner nudges"
