  2. 2. DevOps Deep Dive Agenda What are the practicalities involved in implementing these processes and what key metrics you should measure? Hands onKnowledge Share Q&A 30 mins Look at the need for Agile and DevOps and how you can develop a business case to improve the speed and quality of application delivery
  3. 3. The demand to respond and adapt faster is putti ng huge pressure on IT teams to deliver more quickly Consumer expectation has risen massively changing how businesses interact with customers via digital channels The Digital Economy is Unavoidable The digital economy is being driven by a set of tech mega trends Mobility, hyper-connectivity, cloud, super computing, social engagement and real-time big data analytics
  4. 4. Faster delivery can have an impact if not managed well Unplanned system downtime Critical application failure Pressure to deliver faster when tools and processes are inadequate Greater cost of application delivery (Dev, Test, Deploy, Operate)
  5. 5. Application failure comes with huge cost According to an IDC survey DevOps and the Cost of Downtime: Fortune 1000 Best Practice Metrics Quantified , downtime costs the Fortune 1000 companies a huge amount Critical application failure costs a massive $500,000 to $1 million per hour! An infrastructure failure costs $100,000 per hour! Downtime costs between $1.25 billion and $2.5 billion every year! In response, more than 40 percent of the Fortune 1000 has a DevOps practice, and another 40 percent are actively investigating DevOps
  6. 6. What’s the solution? The adoption of Agile and DevOps practices brings significant benefits and competitive advantage = Faster time to Market Enhanced customer experience through better quality applications Safer application delivery reduces risk of downtime and failure Greater agility and productivity means quicker delivery to the business Reduction in costs through more efficient processes Increased automation eliminates errors from manual processes
  7. 7. So what is Agile & DevOps and how do they help? It’s about people, culture, process and tools They make IT responsive and stable Agile is an iterative development methodology where working solutions are delivered frequently DevOps brings in operations for the continuous delivery of requirements with high levels of automation. Both emphasize: •  Collaboration •  Communication •  Mixed discipline teams •  Better quality software •  Faster, smaller and more frequent deployments •  Business fully integrated into the process •  Reduction in system downtime •  Change at the speed of business
  8. 8. Software is changing every business The speed at which software can change and deliver innovation is now the speed at which the business, and your competitors, can innovate Delivering a business case Application delivery needs to be modernized Lean applies to application delivery Applying lean principles commonly seen in manufacturing can optimize application development processes and remove waste Agile and DevOps apply to enterprise systems as well It’s not just customer facing “Systems of Engagement” that need to be changed quickly. All applications need to be delivered faster - including SAP
  9. 9. #1 Cost of downtime Downtime costs in monetary terms and in reputation. Quantify production downtime and application failure in the last year   How much has that cost?   Agile and DevOps introduce more rigorous quality and risk controls   They will help to improve stability   Typically organizations can reduce downtime by over 50% Delivering a business case - Communication of benefits
  10. 10. #2 Deliver business value early Applications need to deliver business value quickly to promote innovation and increase competiveness   What does it cost to deliver applications now? (Monthly cost)   How much will it cost to delay application delivery? (Resource cost)   Agile and DevOps will reduce development cycles   Estimate how much faster delivery can translate to in revenue terms   What’s the cost to respond when a competitor takes market share because they got there first? Delivering a business case - Communication of benefits
  11. 11. #3 Automation delivers efficiency & predictability Optimizing the development lifecycle improves efficiency and capacity. Evaluate your current teams and processes   How much do you spend on application development and testing now?   Typically organizations can automate over 50% of the development lifecycle   How much extra capacity could you gain by automating manual processes?   Where could that be used to deliver more business value? Delivering a business case - Communication of benefits
  12. 12. #4 Identify waste Identify where waste is present. For example, in reworks and hidden factories where time is spent constantly testing and fixing   How much has that cost?   Typically organizations consider 25% of their Dev, Test, Deployment & Operations wasteful   Agile and DevOps have more and faster feedback loops which help to reduce waste and cost Delivering a business case - Communication of benefits
  13. 13. How long does it take from development to deployment? How much time is spent in Dev & QA? How many changes are being delivered? What is the percentage of failed and successful deployments? Following a failure how long does it take to restore (MTTR) How often are changes being deployed to the business? KPIs to measure success (Before, after & during DevOps) Deployment Frequency Cycle time Volume & Throughput Deployment failure Time to restore What is the rework rate between development & QA? Rework & Waste
  14. 14. DevOps Organization – How to get started Start small then learn and constantly evolve   It’s a cultural change so don't expect to sell DevOps to everyone at once   Winning over smaller audiences with specific projects will create ambassadors who can help promote DevOps elsewhere in the organization Top down or Bottom up?   Often DevOps will start at the bottom with individuals or teams that want to work better and smarter   Executive and management support will be needed otherwise you’ll hit a ceiling
  15. 15. DevOps Organization – How to get started Dev QA Ops Business Organise teams around business outcomes and make business process owners into product owners Team members need to have commitments and responsibilities to the project / product Remove silos to create a cross- skilled team who constantly interact with each other DevOps involves organisational change where Dev, QA, Operations and the Business need to work together Shift Left QA and Operations and engage testing and Basis teams from the beginning
  16. 16. It’s critical to implement the right tools   IT organisations that have tried to adjust current tools to meet DevOps practices have a high failure rate (up to 80%)   Tool replacement and/or addition is a critical requirement Tools are needed for:   Automation to support continuous integration, delivery and deployment   Testing, Builds, Approvals, Deployments, Backout   Analytics to measure performance   Throughput, Cycle times, Rework & Waste, WIP, Approval Times And they need to be integrated to create slick end-to-end processes Where do tools come in?
  17. 17. Continuous Integration Automated Testing Automated QA Checks Automated Build Pipeline Automated Environments Continuous Delivery Automated Workflow Automated Approvals Multi-Track Development Build & Deploy Check Lists Continuous Deployment Automated Deployment Cross-System Dependency Checks & Orchestration Failsafe - Backout Basis Technologies Automation and Analytics tools Cross Team Collaboration Dev Analytics
