451 Research: How IT Ops Can Thrive in a DevOps World

Can central IT and DevOps coexist peacefully?

Central IT departments are in a tough position. BYOD, shadow IT, and even cloud deployments are circumventing them. Now, with application development also being removed from central IT’s control, the department itself is being called into question. Does central IT need to change?

In this DevOps study, How IT Ops Can Thrive in a DevOps World, 451 Research explores the realm of DevOps. What is it? And where are most organizations in their journey toward the ideal “DevOps” state?

For one, 451 Research found that 63 percent of organizations want shorter application release cycles, and they’re hiring staff and changing processes to accomplish that. But that doesn’t mean the end of central IT as we know it?

Consider the following:

  • 43.5 percent of organizations classify the DevOps team as cross-functional, with members from different parts of the IT organization
  • 50 percent of organizations say that IT Ops is responsible for DevOps support
  • 80 percent of organizations say that IT Ops must give approval for emerging technology (e.g., cloud, open source tools, middleware)

IT Ops is still very much in charge. In this report, find out how IT is evolving to meet the challenges of working with DevOps teams, as well as how to adapt for cloud use and evolve to once again be the centrifugal force of all IT activity. You’ll learn where the challenges lie as well as the processes that need to speed up to meet the new demands of the DevOps world.
