Watch: The single question to predict success for DevOps (31 minutes)

What if you could assess the performance level of your team by asking one simple question? In his recent webinar with Redgate, Gene Kim (@realgenekim) suggests that you can.

In this 30 minute session, I discuss three insights from the recent ‘Gene Kim joins Redgate to discuss The 2018 Accelerate State of DevOps Report’ webinar (recording). I also dig into why these insights make a compelling argument for modifying your organization’s change control process.

Key Insights from Gene Kim that I discuss in the session

  1. The question, “To what degree do we fear doing deployments?” on a scale of 1 to 7, is a simple way to measure whether or not your company is a high performer
  2. Although database operations has been a high-spend area for a long time, it has been comparatively impoverished in most organizations when it comes to tooling and automation, as compared to other areas of Software Development
  3. Becoming a high performer at DevOps includes completely rethinking how change control is managed for your IT organization
