"Interesting. Very critical for any transformation. Gets to ask the right questions by locking in all Dev and Ops guys in a room and thrashing out what to do. Definite read." - John Willis The book describes how to assess your IT for DevOps by leveraging quantitative methods. As opposed to DevOps assessments that are typically subjective and follow heuristic approaches, a quantitative assessment approach makes the it highly deterministic and capable of generating an implementation-ready target state. The book covers pre-assessment for DevOps to first capture a high level readiness, followed by the detailed assessment approach that generates (a) target architectures in terms of people, process and technology, (b) detailed DevOps implementation stories, and (c) key metrics with target estimated values where applicable. It describes the quantitative methods used along with numerous examples, templates and checklists. A glossary of terms used and a categorized technology/ tool list for ready reference have also been included. The authors have a vast experience in the field of DevOps, and have conducted large scale DevOps assessments and implementations across a number of organizations, including truly global firms across industry verticals. With each of them having more than twenty years of experience in IT, the approach has been uniquely formulated (and presented in this book) by them to map any organization's IT strategy to on-ground DevOps implementation as may be required to be planned by such organization.
