Of course, before implementing any new process or strategy, your leadership needs to learn about it. See who in your IT department is already familiar with DevOps, and ask them questions. Consider bringing in an outside trainer or consultant to help bring IT developers and operators up to speed on DevOps. Begin identifying DevOps-friendly tools, environments and services. Odds are this will include automation tools like Puppet, Chef and Microsoft PowerShell. Keep in mind that DevOps, like Agile, can require changes in how some of your employees work, and in intra- and inter-departmental interaction. Be prepared to invest the time in education, perhaps organizing some social events to help these formerly separate groups meet. And give them time to adapt. Any major change like this, no matter where in your business it occurs, demands a plan and the time and flexibility to implement it.
And, of course, monitor the use of DevOps, and collect feedback from developers and operators to assess benefits, problems, concerns, and/or changes.
