DevOps Assessments

This assessment book is an excellent mirror for every DevOps team that wants to quickly obtain a complete picture of the DevOps best practices to be addressed.DevOps teams organize themselves and improve the Development (Dev) and Operations (Ops) aspects that are still underexposed. On the other hand, DevOps teams share knowledge and skills with other DevOps teams so that they reinforce each other. This book provides a tool to make the DevOps teams aware of where they stand in terms of maturity and the next steps they can take to develop. To this end, this book offers two assessments. The first assessment is the DevOps Cube assessment based on ‘The Three Ways” by Gene Kim. The second assessment is based on Continuous Everything whereby all aspects of DevOps are measured using the CMMI model. The DevOps Cube assessment is based on the idea that DevOps can be viewed from six different perspectives. Each gives a specific picture of the design of the DevOps philosophy. The fronts of the cube are based on “The Three Ways”: “Flow”, “Feedback” and “Continuous Learning”, the back of the cube include: “Governance”, “Pipeline” and “QA”. The Continuous Everything assessment comprises six lists of questions that make the DevOps maturity measurable on five levels. The following dimensions are included: “Continuous Integration”, “Continuous Delivery”, “Continuous Testing”, “Continuous Monitoring”, “Continuous Documentation”, and “Continuous Learning”. This assessment book is an excellent mirror for every DevOps team that wants to quickly obtain a complete picture of the DevOps best practices to be addressed.

Agile Service Management with Scrum Researched

Many companies are starting to apply Agile software development using Scrum or Kanban or have already implemented the new development process. Sooner or later the question arises how this development process relates to the service management processes. The book “Agile Service Management with Scrum” has already addressed this interface and a number of risks per service management process have been identified. Countermeasures that can be taken are also defined. In a research at ten organisations these risks were presented, and they were asked how they deal with these risks. The research included the investigation into which Agile aspects are applied and in particular those of Scrum or Kanban. Finally, each organization has carried out a maturity assessment for both the Agile development process and the change management process. This book is the report about the research of the collaboration of Agile software development and service management processes in practice. The target group of this book includes all parties involved in the application of Agile software development and who would like to know how colleagues have shaped this crucial interface for successful service provision. In this book a short description is given of each organization about how the Agile development process has been designed.
