How should a DevOps organization structure its people, processes, and tools? This is a question of implementation and adoption of DevOps practices, and the answer will vary according to where the organization is situated on its transformation journey.


  • The key structural shift is an agile (e.g. Scrum) team that is cross-disciplinary not just across development-related silos (developers, testers, QA, security, DBAs, BAs) but which also includes operations and networking, making it a DevOps team.

Features and Benefits

  • The agile iteration is the heartbeat in a DevOps team, around which continuous integration and continuous testing form key activities.
  • Continuous delivery (CD) is the key supporting technology for DevOps, enabling rapid delivery into production at the speed the business wants it delivered.

Key questions answered
