I first heard about Conway’s Law from reading the DevOps Handbook (an excellent read, by the way, if you want to dive head first into DevOps). I was intrigued by how this idea came from slightly left-field, yet seemed to have big implications for businesses on their journey to increased efficiency.
In this blog, you will learn what Conway’s Law is and how it is relevant for your business – whether you are in the middle of a DevOps transformation or just taking your first steps.

DevOps is best suited to digital start-ups with minimal regulation and few restrictions, right?
Initially the DevOps movement stemmed from the agile, innovative, born-on-the-web companies who were able to change their way of working quickly. However, the principles and practices are completely transferrable to all organisation types. This includes those at the other end of the spectrum – where processes are very tightly controlled and regulation dictates a significant part of the business investment.
Technical debt is the enemy of fast change – and of DevOps. It sometimes hides under the covers while new features are being delivered but, much like financial debt, it will never go away unless it is addressed directly.
At some point your technical debt will reach critical mass. This is when it starts to hinder every attempt to change, while forcing you to spend more time fire-fighting and managing the debt rather than delivering new features for the customer. This growing technical debt mountain will seriously affect your business ability.
4th January 2018 We are very proud to introduce the Sandhata DevOps KPI and Analytics Advisory Service – a unique service approach that aims to empower your DevOps and Agile teams with structured and automated metrics to help you achieve your strategic objectives.
In recent years, DevOps has become an established methodology that has helped countless businesses to accelerate their output and improve IT delivery.
However, while DevOps as a concept has become more commoditised, many organisations are struggling to achieve the change they had hoped for, and are unable to confidently report how successful their DevOps initiative has been.
The Sandhata DevOps KPI and Analytics Advisory Service is designed to support organisations to achieve the maximum business benefit from their DevOps programme by ensuring that business impact and strategic progress is accurately measured every step of the way.
With the help of our tailored outcomes-driven KPI framework and experience working with a range of strategic goals, we provide businesses with a greater chance of DevOps success.

We’ve all heard the cliché: Agile teams are self-organised and self-managed.
However, if it’s that simple, why are organisations not consistently churning out self-managed teams delivering solutions in a smooth manner? In reality, there are plenty of dynamics involved in enabling agile teams, and there are multiple factors that play a big part in nurturing self-managed teams.
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.
