The basic idea behind the DevOps principle is to bridge the gaps between different disciplines of IT and speeding up delivery cycles. You can easily imagine what this means for one as a person and for whole teams. It becomes more difficult when discussing the impact of DevOps for entire organizations and their ways of working. The DevOps transformation has some similarities with the agile transformation most companies are working on. However, DevOps transformation goes further than agile approaches.I will introduce our approach to applying DevOps principles at Hermes Germany and how we are trying to get things right.In my talk I’ll discuss how we aligned business and IT. I will also introduce our approach to developing our people and transforming our organization to make use of the new possibilities both DevOps principles and new technology offers. For example, at the current state of our journey, our organization looks completely different than at the start. And like all journeys, our journey comes with its own obstacles and pitfalls that we needed to solve. I address some of these and show potential solutions.
