The CIO's Guide to DevOps

The old methods won't cut it

DevOps, digital transformation and today's CIO

You've heard about DevOps; you've read about digital transformation. What are these things, and what do they have to do with you, the CIO? How can you make sure your organization is not just current, but staying truly competitive?

How can DevOps affect talent recruitment and retention? Are there hard numbers that prove DevOps works?

We take on these questions and concerns in our new guide to DevOps for CIOs. In this guide, we tell you:

  • What DevOps actually means.
  • How DevOps makes a difference for organizations that have implemented it.
  • Why DevOps matters to digital transformation in today's business climate and beyond.
  • How DevOps principles and practices can build your organizational muscle to deal with today's changes — and those to come.

Our guide is based on survey findings and research gathered over five years from more than 25,000 IT professionals around the world. We've also drawn on the experiences of several people from the 32,000-plus organizations using Puppet (including two-thirds of the Fortune 100). There's no bigger study of successful IT organizations and what they're doing right. Learn from the experience of others, and keep your organization out ahead of your competitors.
