It Takes a Village
DevOps and Continuous Delivery are equal parts art, and science. As with any other practice, community, repetition and experimentation brings advances that benefits everyone.
The Thought Leaders Network has brought together a consortium of experts – including luminaries like Jez Humble, Gene Kim and Gary Gruver, each of whom is recognized for defining Continuous Delivery and DevOps, and are providing a clear point of view for the community of practitioners.
I am excited to be a part of this industry-wide effort to elevate the state of the practice, and thank Electric Cloud and their partners for helping accelerate the adoption of DevOps practices.- Gene Kim, DeOps researcher, co-author of "The Phoenix Project: A Novel About IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Win”
Powering Continuous Delivery - Together!
Members of the Thought Leaders Alliance include:
Gary Gruver has been working in high tech for over 23 years; the first 22 years in various different leadership roles at HP, the last 5 years at HP was leading a large organization (400+ developers) on a journey from waterfall to agile development. This journey and observations were recently published as a case study that is part of the Agile Software Development Series. He is currently working for Macy’s.com as the VP of QE, Release and Operations learning about e-commerce and leading a transition toward continuous delivery.
People not practicing Continuous Delivery often doubt it can work. Once they’ve developed in this type of environment they can’t imagine ever going back.- Gary Gruver, Agile Leader and Co-author: “Large Scale Agile Development”
The Continuous Delivery Alliance is joined by technology and service providers, including Rally Software, Perforce, Parasoft, Chef, AppDynamics, Wind River and Siemens PLM. Electric Cloud is partnering with these and other industry leaders to provide an integrated, heterogeneous solution for customers, allowing single-click software delivery solutions that go from product design all the way to product release and maintenance.
The Critical Pieces for Continuous Delivery Success
Achieving CD means first creating a DevOps culture full of cross-team collaboration and shared goals. We help you get everyone on-board!
Everyone starts with their own unique process. CD works best when your processes follow proven, best-practice patterns. We show you the way!
You can’t get to CD without Automation. Codify your manual processes and make your processes repeatable, predictable and visible. We make it happen!
70% percent of software deployments take more than a day — some require weeks or months — and more than half having missed application release dates due to deployment issues. Businesses need help to guide, simplify and accelerate their path to DevOps and CD.- Electric Cloud Survey, "Dev and IT professionals" July 2012
