FedScoop: ‘DevOps will make the government more efficient. But what actually is it?’

FedScoopFedScoop reports that a panelist discussion at RedHat’s recent Government Symposium yielded several different viewpoints on the definition of “DevOps”.

Panelists who have been involved in bringing DevOps practices to their respective agencies all agreed that DevOps is about increasing the speed of service delivery, but each highlighted a different component of the term.

Jennifer Hoover, a digital services expert in the office of the CTO at the Department of Homeland Security mentioned the ‘people’ aspect of DevOps.

“I always think of DevOps mostly as a people-centric focus,” she told the gathered crowd. “So many times I’ve been at conferences and panels and people talk about DevOps in a very technological way, where it’s focused on technology. But DevOps is so much bigger than technology. DevOps is about people, processes, technology — bringing that all together and then looping in innovation as part of that so we can move better and faster so we can deliver the mission for customers.”
