Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) Podcast, Episode 93: 2018 Review and 2019 Predictions

This morning on our Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) podcast, we had a captivating discussion with a few of the leading minds in enterprise IT and DevOps. Formatted as a retrospective of how the world of software impacted all of us in 2018, and also to look ahead to how the world will change in 2019, we were able to peel back the onion and see what really is top of mind as we head into the New Year.

Today’s guests dove into the driving forces of DevOps and what practices and patterns are shaping the industry for the year(s) to come. Everything from application architecture and cloud-native consolidation to upskilling and the operating model was discussed. Perhaps one thing was clear, however, that people agree that DevOps is on course to reach the so called “peak” – whether that happens in 2019 or not remains to be seen. Some of the very core principles of DevOps, such as automation, are also creating paradoxes for not just development and IT operations, but business leaders and administrative roles and responsibilities as well. Challenges such as these, discussed by our esteemed panel, point to prescriptive resolutions for 2019, such as moving critical operational activities closest to those with the most context within the organization.

For a deeper dive into the enterprise IT layers that are impacted by modern software delivery practices, we highlighted:

  • How DevOps impacted the world around us in 2018
  • What’s next for DevOps in 2019
  • New Year’s resolutions for enterprise IT
