How DevOps can redefine your IT strategy

Rich Hein | March 18, 2015
Is DevOps the flavor of the month or the competitive advantage you’ve been looking for? We ask experts what they think of the trend, where to find talent and how IT workers can break into this emerging field within IT.

Yochem agrees for the most part. "Most of the certifications are still platform/discipline-specific, and many of these are part of the DevOps world. But, overall, no certifications are necessary here."

There are some certifications out there worth looking into, according to Goli andHenry, although they aren't the silver bullet you may be looking for. Lean certifications or certifications offered that can express a background in certain technical tools, such as configuration management tools or cloud certifications.

Final thoughts
DevOps isn't something you can just decide to do. Much like big data, it requires a culture change and a breaking down of the functioning silos within the IT organization. It needs to start at the top. The end-game is to have your development and operations team working in a collaborative fashion toward the collective goal of continuous delivery of better software.
