Save time, empower your teams and effectively upgrade your processes with access to this practical DevOps Engineering Toolkit and guide. Address common challenges with best-practice templates, step-by-step work plans and maturity diagnostics for any DevOps Engineering related project.

Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.

The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated DevOps Engineering specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the DevOps Engineering Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 968 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which DevOps Engineering improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 968 standard requirements:

  1. Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, Continuous Release, and Continuous Delivery are key DevOps enablers. Automated testing involves automated, CI-driven execution of whatever set of tests the team has accumulated. However, if one of these tests fails, what does that really mean: does it indicate a critical business risk, or just a violation of some naming standard that nobody is really committed to following anyway?

  2. You can start to create different test scenarios by bringing together all of the different types of testing that you require, and keeping a tight association with the application components to which these tests belong. This mapping is critical to understand which tests touch which code and more importantly understanding: when the code changes, which tests need to be re-run?

  3. With this new, ñfull-stackî approach to software delivery comes new opportunity for delay. DevOps was developed as a reaction to the long lead times required for infrastructure provisioning and integration with bureaucracy-laden ITIL processes. But what are these new sources of delay in the software development lifecycle?

  4. DevOps is not about product, it's about what you know and how your company is structured, how your team works together. So, do your developers, does your development team know exactly what actual production looks like? Can they tell you what production looks like?

  5. Essentially, DevOps is an operational approach that changes how organizations think about developing and deploying applications. But, for many organizations, this can be a bit vague. How do you introduce this sort of change?

  6. To put your organization on the path to DevOps, you need a clear understanding of your current practices for development and operations. Do your development processes use agile or waterfall methodologies, or both?

  7. DevOps is fundamentally about culture and about the quality of your application. And by quality the specific software engineering term of quality is meant, of different quality attributes. What matters to you?

  8. Do you have performance measures in place from the customer point of view? For instance: How many minutes has the service not responded within its SLA the number of affected customers within a given week?

  9. DevOps needs both a strong definition and a set of standard success measures, but how does your organization measure ñimproved cooperation between development and operationsî or ñalignmentî?

  10. Are there root causal reasons for the need of DevOps that can be generalised across many organizations, regardless of what type of business, industry, sector, scale and geographic location?

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy

The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage DevOps Engineering projects with the 62 implementation resources:

  • 62 step-by-step DevOps Engineering Project Management Form Templates covering over 1500 DevOps Engineering project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Stakeholder Management Plan: Are DevOps Engineering project team members involved in detailed estimating and scheduling?

  2. Cost Management Plan: What is the work breakdown structure for the DevOps Engineering project?

  3. Procurement Management Plan: How will you coordinate Procurement with aspects of the DevOps Engineering project?

  4. Cost Management Plan: Has your organization readiness assessment been conducted?

  5. Procurement Audit: Was the estimated contract value in line with the final cost of the contract awarded?

  6. Procurement Audit: Are buyers prohibited from accepting gifts from vendors?

  7. Schedule Management Plan: Is a payment system in place with proper reviews and approvals?

  8. Closing Process Group: Mitigate. what will you do to minimize the impact should a risk event occur?

  9. Lessons Learned: How much of your time was spent on other than this DevOps Engineering project?

  10. Risk Register: What further options might be available for responding to the risk?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any DevOps Engineering project with this in-depth DevOps Engineering Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose DevOps Engineering projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in DevOps Engineering and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make DevOps Engineering investments work better.

This DevOps Engineering All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
