Top 6 secrets to build a DevOps culture

I talk to many CEOs regularly. They are struggling with a long go to market duration, frequent feature releases, fixing issues in the production faster, and scaling the products. 

In this blog, I am discussing how adopting DevOps can help you overcome these issues.

I am also highlighting how to nurture your organizations to adopt a DevOps culture.   

INSPIRE THE CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT

To nurture a DevOps culture, as a leader you must inspire your team to use continuous improvement. 

DevOps brings end-to-end responsibility, which brings constant changes to any organization.

Businesses must practice adaptability to the changes whether it is new customer needs, new technologies, or legislation changes. 

The culture of adopting continuous improvement helps your team to get used to the CI/CD pipeline, which is an integral part of DevOps.

FOCUS ON CUSTOMER NEEDS

When you start focussing on fulfilling customer needs, it’s become easy to nurture a DevOps culture in your organization. 

With DevOps, you get data. The automated processes always create data and you should constantly review all the data to ensure that performance targets are met.  

But you should focus on the right data, such as the duration between the initial code commit and changes in the production.

Also, you must check the error rate while you deploy new software in the production environment and the meantime recover during any service interruption. 

However, always focus on the matrices that matter to your customers.

  • Containerising and automating the deployment of environments for the Skyword app and migrate on K8S.
  • CI and CD implementation for Skyword application.
  • API and Selenium UI automation testing of Skyword application use cases, and make it part of the CI/CD
  • Setting up Operations/Monitoring dashboard like TrackMaven
  • Help in migrating private GitLab to public SaaS GitHub.
  • g or Lambda, the time to implement – and therefore innovate – is significantly reduced.
  • Integration to other systems
    Being on AWS opens up new possibilities to integrate including best of breed tools & services to connect to other systems.
  • Scale
    Elasticity, load balancing and the capability to scale automatically is a big bonus.

END-TO-END ACCOUNTABILITY

When you look at the conventional software development model, you can see that the developers and operations play separate roles.

But DevOps makes both these groups work together as a team, which is fully responsible for the end-to-end deployment of the apps. 

The core pillar of DevOps is to control and take responsibility for services from “concept to grave.”

I think the gap between developers writing code and the operation team deploying the same is full of inefficiencies. These can occur from differences in production, performance, and unpredictable environments.

HYBRID IT AUTOMATION

How much time do you need to respond to your customer feedback?

You must automate your process to strive for continuous improvement.

It speeds up your cycle time. Businesses are experiencing notable development in automated tools to integrate processes including the CI/CD pipeline.

You must automate your 

  • Infrastructure provisioning
  • Building new software 
  • Deploying software and new system 
  • All tests from functionality to security compliance

In addition, your DevOps team can create indigenous automated processes. You can train your system to deploy apps faster with more reliability.

NURTURE A COLLABORATIVE ENVIRONMENT

I think that the prime motive behind DevOps is to combine both development and operations to build a unilateral team driven by common objectives.

Brands need to inspire their development and operations teams to communicate regularly, share ideas, and resolve issues together to achieve this. 

I think breaking down silos is essential to bring both these branches together. 

Businesses need to align people, processes, and tools toward customer success. 

This happens only when you, as a CEO or CTO, try to nurture a collaborative culture together. 

When you shift your siloed working culture towards a collaborative environment, your business faces a cultural shift and it should follow a top-down approach. 

Hence, getting the right people who are confident enough for this cultural shift is essential.

EMBRACE FAILURE AND FAIL TEST

Gone are the days when you keep on measuring your team’s effectiveness based on their success. 

As per my understanding, DevOps culture needs a fail-fast approach to grow. It is just the opposite way of measuring success based on efficiency.

Let me tell you why.

The faster you fail, the faster you discover the successful way to do it. The core idea behind this is not to maximize failure but to inspire your development team to experiment with failure in a structured environment.

The faster they fail, the quicker they can discover ways to enhance the apps. Originally the fail-fast approach is popular in agile methodology. 

But you can migrate it into DevOps also. But here the managers need to control the costs of failure, especially when it affects your customer services. 

If you allow your developers to fail early during the development process, they can detect the defects and errors before the same goes for deployment.
