Making the transition to DevOps practices requires more than just a flip of a switch. It takes stakeholder buy-in and often requires cultural and business practice transformations that impact the entire organization. DevOps isn’t a product; it’s a methodology, and adoption takes preparation and planning. Many companies are eager to get started with DevOps, but are looking for guidance on how and where to begin.
