DevOps Standard Requirements

Crucial Requirements:

  1. Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, Continuous Release, and Continuous Delivery are key DevOps enablers. Automated testing involves automated, CI-driven execution of whatever set of tests the team has accumulated. However, if one of these tests fails, what does that really mean: does it indicate a critical business risk, or just a violation of some naming standard that nobody is really committed to following anyway?
  2. You can then start to create different test scenarios by bringing together all of the different types of testing that you require, and keeping a tight association with the application components to which these tests belong. This mapping is critical to understand which tests touch which code and more importantly understanding: when the code changes, which tests need to be re-run?
  3. Ask yourself when you're talking about DevOps, again, it's not about a product. It's about what you know and how your company is structured, how your team works together. So, one of the questions I like to ask is, "Do your developers-- does your development team know exactly what actual production looks like. I mean exactly. Can they tell you what production looks like?
  4. With this new, full-stack approach to software delivery comes new opportunity for delay. DevOps was developed as a reaction to the long lead times required for infrastructure provisioning and integration with bureaucracy-laden ITIL processes. But what are these new sources of delay in the software development lifecycle?
  5. DevOps isn't really a product. It's not something you can buy. DevOps is fundamentally about culture and about the quality of your application. And by quality I mean the specific software engineering term of quality, of different quality attributes. What matters to you?
  6. A competitive edge, excellent. Focus on continuous delivery. Move on to continuous deployment because that's going to provide your business value. But look at your individual business. Look at your environment and say "is that what gives us the competitive edge?
  7. Essentially, DevOps isn't a tool or a product. It's an operational approach that changes how organisations think about developing and deploying applications. But, for many organisations, this can be a bit vague. How do you introduce this sort of change?
  8. To put your organization on the path to DevOps, you need a clear understanding of your current practices for development and operations. Do your development processes use agile or waterfall methodologies, or both?
  9. Do you have performance measures in place from the customer point of view? For instance: How many minutes has the service not responded within its SLA the number of affected customers within a given week?
  10. Is a process utilized by your company that can be used for documenting and analyzing the security aspects of fielded systems and for steering future improvements and modifications to those systems?

  • Excluding hired consultants and advisors from top management consulting firms, internal DevOps Self-Assessment work is typically undertaken by senior level positions with titles such as Enterprise Architect, Business Process Architects, Business Process Re-engineering Specialists and Business Architects.
    • Statistics according to Glassdoor and Indeed tell these positions receive an average basic pay of $125,000. Daily rates of basic pay are computed bydividing an employee's annual pay by 260 days. The daily salary is then derived by dividing the annual salary of $125,000 by 260 days = a daily rate of $480.
  • Top management consulting firmsstart at $2,000 a day, with rates typically charged up to 40 hours per week.
