DevOps In Regulated Industries

Does DevOps Work in Highly Regulated Industries?

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.

Drowning in technical debt

Are you drowning in technical debt?

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 growing technical debt mountain will seriously affect your business ability.
