DevOps – Another IT buzzword?

Our VP Of Sales EMEA, shared this post in his LinkedIn account, have a look!

Upsizing, downsizing, right-sizing, Client – Server, Fat Client, Thin Client, open source, outsource, enterprise integration, enterprise management, business process re-engineering, business process management.  A few of the buzzwords we have created in the industry in my memory.  Now we have DevOps!  So is it hype or reality?  The speed of business is changing.  Moving ever faster and requiring more flexibility to compete with the challenges of  new companies that are not held back by legacy.  Agility is seen as key to long term survival and short term profit.  So now the focus of attention has turned to the once dark corner of the data centre.  The interface between development and operations and how implementing a DevOps strategy can potentially offer a route to flexibility and agility.

Here is an interesting article from the Register

There are many many tools in the DevOps market already.  Some which organisations have already invested in and have tried to hand stitch together.  At Clarive we provide a platform that orchestrates what you already have and fills in the gaps of the things you don’t have.  The Clarive platform allows organisations in transition between traditional waterfall development methodologies to agile and allows all of the people to use the same tool.  The key thing though is flexibility – allowing for changes in tools, business and process.  So maybe this is DevOps Enterprise Integration Process Management right-sized in the cloud? (don’t quote me!  I am joking!)
