Last week we held our monthly techday, this time the topic was an introduction to Continuous Delivery.
I did a 60 minute talk with lots of room for discussion. As software developers we love tools, but the focus of the talk was on people, process and the different characteristics of our products, customers and production-configurations.
Last week my colleague Yanne Veronneau wrote a piece on this blog about avoiding the vicious cycle of bad IT results (I strongly suggest you read it – and also check out the original article by Bob Lewis from IT Catalysts that inspired it. Good stuff).
Anyway, it’s been a bit of a hot topic around the office since then. And it got me thinking about the people that aren’t so lucky that they can avoid that awful situation to begin with… Some people believe that the relationship between Business and IT is doomed to be a bad one, but please believe me, it doesn’t have to be that way!
I recently came across a brilliant piece by Bob Lewis from IT Catalysts about breaking the vicious cycle of bad IT results.
I’m going to try and sum it up here and give our take on it, but I really urge you to go ahead and read it right here.
