DevOps is often heralded as the solution to all the problems within IT - planning, slow delivery, large team, etc. All solved via automation. However, once the dust settles and the new tools are implemented, the more challenging problem begins. Implementation of a DevOps type practice requires change and adaptation of the practices within the framework of the existing culture, and these challenges are often overlooked or poorly addressed. This talk discusses many of these challenges as observed in small and large companies alike, how to plan and execute successfully.
