This year iTMethods became a sponsor of the 2020 Virtual DevOps Enterprise Summit (DOES), where we shared some best practices and insights on how to enable Enterprise Digital Transformation.
In this video blog, Mike King, our Director of Strategic Accounts, created this informative video where he recaps top DevOps toolchain challenges facing enterprises today and how iTMethods’ Managed DevOps SaaS Platform can help address.
In this video, Mike highlights 5 most common DevOps Toolchain challenges:
1. Focus limited resources on business priorities
The ability to focus limited resources on projects that enable business outcomes instead of maintaining infrastructure (such as managing security patches and configuring tools).
2. Software currency
Maintaining software currency creates major challenges for many organizations. Staying current with the latest patches and fixes is not always feasible, particularly, which you have integrated multiple vendors and hybrid-cloud environments which need to be successfully tested and maintained.
3. Optimized cloud architectures & operations
Although companies understand the value of migrating to the Cloud, they are oftentimes hampered due to internal resource constraints and/or expertise to optimize and operationalize these environments.
4. Ability to execute and meet timelines
Once companies embark on their DevOps Transformation journey, they generally find balancing resources and meeting business demands can regularly conflict with managing critical infrastructure projects.
5. Functional expertise gaps
Not having enough internal resources to support a particular tool, or project can be a challenge to maintaining Digital Transformation. Particularly if it increases the turnover of key talent because they feel burdened with managing infrastructure vs delivering on more strategic projects.
