XebiaLabs, the recognized leader in DevOps and Continuous Delivery software, today announced the release of the latest edition of The IT Managers Guide to DevOps: How to Drive the Business Value of Software Delivery, by Tim Buntel and the late Robert E. Stroud. The book, which is a vastly expanded update of The Managers Guide to Continuous Delivery, provides foundational knowledge about how to use DevOps and Continuous Delivery to optimize software processes to drive business goals. XebiaLabs will be giving away free advance copies of the book at this weeks DevOps Enterprise Summit in Las Vegas.
Using DevOps to Drive Business Value
The promise of delivering better software faster is why so many companies have moved to DevOpsand its well worth the effort. According to the Accelerate: State of DevOps, 2018 survey, high-performing DevOps teams deploy 46 times more often than low performers, recover from incidents 2555 times faster, and are 7 times less likely to experience change-related failures. High-performing DevOps teams create better, more secure software and accelerate time to market. But to get there, organizations need to adopt a big-picture approach to using DevOps to enable business objectives.
DevOps is not just a technical thing where, if you use the right tools, youll magically get great results, said co-author, Tim Buntel. But, much of the information about DevOps gets into the technical weeds. It doesnt clearly lay out how DevOps can optimize software delivery to empower the business. This book fills that gap. Its ideal for people who need to connect software delivery with business delivery to increase value.
