There are many articles about what needs to be done to adopt DevOps successfully, but in this blog we’re going to focus on organisational readiness. The purpose of this blog is to highlight some of the key organisational factors and considerations which help to determine whether a DevOps initiative is really needed for your business – and whether it is likely to be successful in your organisation at the current time.
DevOps adoption is pretty ubiquitous at the moment. It is touted as a no-brainer that ‘everyone needs to jump on the DevOps bandwagon’. But is DevOps really guaranteed to deliver on everything it promises for your organisation?
It seems like DevOps is absolutely everywhere now. Pretty much every company is talking about it – even if they are not ready to explore it yet. In this DevOps adoption frenzy, it is inevitable that some of the core principles of DevOps (what it is, how it adds value to your business, etc.) will get watered down. When DevOps is mandated, the word itself becomes overused and the core message can get lost.
Are you wondering where to start your DevOps journey – or how to progress an existing initiative? Do you need a better understanding of how the adoption process should run? Would you prefer to know what to expect from each phase?
In our Downloadable Quick Guide The 5 Steps to DevOps Success we share the key building blocks you need for a solid DevOps strategy, for Continuous Delivery and for moving from Continuous Delivery to Production Release Automation.

So what are the reasons why some businesses choose not to consider DevOps as an alternative for their IT projects? This video looks at the 7 most common misconceptions that prevent businesses from embracing DevOps.
Over the last few weeks, we have been publishing a few articles about the Live DevOps Innovation Platform, and how we built it. But I’d like to take the opportunity to share some of the benefits that we, as Sandhata consultants, have seen – so far – as a result of building this new DevOps platform and the application Sandhata Bank.
The importance of security in software development is already widely understood and security testing is generally well embraced in the software delivery process. But when organisations enter the world of Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment, it becomes even more important to be able to test and enforce continuous security the same way – not only quarterly or monthly.
We recently announced the arrival of our Live DevOps Innovation Platform built in-house here at Sandhata. I wanted to share some of the tools we have used for it so far, as well as my personal experiences on this platform, as it has been very interesting and a big learning experience for me.
In the world of DevOps, everybody knows that getting the culture right is critical to business success. But how can it be done? In my opinion, it is largely about establishing the right communication baseline within teams and across the organisation.
