Getting developers and IT operations working together

by Alan Hale (Red Hat)

This post originally appeared in DeveloperTech.

Today’s business leaders want more innovation, faster. They know that, in order to beat competitors and continue to thrive, their organisation must excel in bringing new products and services to market at speed and on consistently exceeding customer expectations.

That puts major pressure on those responsible for developing and delivering new and enhanced software functionality for the business to use. More frequent releases and shorter deadlines are increasingly becoming facts of life, but in the race to fast-track new pieces of code, IT teams often hit a roadblock.

That roadblock occurs at the boundary of application development and IT operations, an intersection where two very different cultures meet.

Conflict resolution

The developer is happiest using Agile techniques to produce a constant stream of software releases and upgrades that will get the business where it needs to be, in terms of innovation.

On the other side of the boundary is IT operations, where stability and control are what matters. Disruption is the enemy and frequent software releases can be complex to manage. IT operations agree that they want the business to move forwards – but not at the risk of critical systems falling over.
