Unblocking The Environmental Logjam With A DevOps Approach

Learn how a DevOps methodology helps remove the dev/test environment roadblocks that hold up release cycles.

During our work on DevOps transformation, the most common problem we find is related to environments.

There are never enough, and the environments which exist are expensive to run and frequently inconsistent between development, test and production.

The aims of this paper are threefold:

  • To illustrate the hidden costs and inefficiencies associated with what we call the environment logjam so that readers can see if these problems are relevant or perhaps accepted as the norm within their own organizations.
  • To explain how a devops approach can help to improve this situation – primarily through automation but also culture and working practices.
  • To highlight the business case for taking on improvement.
