DevOps, DevOps, DevOps. When you talk to people focused on building and delivering custom software solutions, it seems that this is the topic they all want to know about. Luckily, Microsoft offers a fully-featured, best-of-breed set of tools to support DevOps in our customers' organizations. But tools are arguably the least important part of the DevOps value chain. Organizational culture and process are just as important if not more important to the success of a DevOps evolution but this is an area that is not often talked about. In this Breakpoint Shorts session, we will discuss the general requirements and features that good software tools must have to support DevOps-capable software delivery teams.
This is the third part in a 3-part series. In Part 1, we discussed how culture within an organization is key to the success of teams adopting a DevOps capability. In Part 2, we discussed how process is an enabler for teams adopting a DevOps capability.
