Fast and Flexible IT
The starting point in both ITIL and DevOps is delivering stable IT Services, quickly identifying the cause of incidents and quick incident resolution. ITIL’s success is thanks to the use of best practices regarding tasks, processes, and priorities. Today, however, there is a growing need for fast and flexible IT. It’s is also important that new functionalities not create chaos or result in disruptions. It is precisely in this area that the best practices and established procedures of ITIL prove their worth.
DevOps and ITSM are a good match. However, to achieve it, the ITSM experts in an organization must be prepared to immerse themselves in the principles of DevOps. If they don’t, they will let their company – and themselves – down. DevOps is not hype. It’s a sustainable change that you must not allow to pass you by.
Sukhbir Jasuja, CEO ITpreneurs
While DevOps is on a real triumphal march throughout the business community, you don’t hear as much from ITSM. However, ITSM professionals who are prepared to step outside their comfort zone will realize that their ITIL knowledge is still very relevant and adds value to today’s DevOps concept. The RightScale 2016, State of DevOps Report shows that DevOps has a very beneficial effect on organizational culture and employee engagement. The ROI for a company is high.
