How DevOps can accelerate the cloud application lifecycle

Bernard Golden | Feb. 12, 2014
In the past, infrastructure deployment and application updates both slowed the development lifecycle. Now that cloud computing lets organizations provision resources in minutes, not months, it's time to alter the application lifecycle accordingly. DevOps can help -- but only if it extends beyond 'culture change' to actually achieve continuous deployment.

We don't live in that world, though. We live in today's world, where the accelerating pace of business change necessitates a complete rework of how IT has operated since its earliest days. Manufacturing went through a painful 30-year reengineering phase that upended century-old practices in the pursuit of efficiency and lower costs. Things are moving faster now, and IT won't have anywhere near 30 years to accomplish the same task - but accomplish the task it must.
