As Development and IT Ops teams look to be more efficient, decreasing their time to market and increasing product support, DevOps has become the predominant industry solution. There are many resources that paint a picture of the ideal processes for Development and Operations working harmoniously together- but how do we actual get there? Where should we start?

According to IDC's 2015 report, The Document Disconnect, 76% of executives and managers in sales, HR, procurement, legal, and other departments estimate that fixing the “document disconnect” can lead to document process issues impact revenue recognition or create auditor issues. As process improvement experts, we at Praecipio Consulting love saving our clients money by mitigating wasted time and helping them do work faster.

With the rise of CaaS (Containers as a Service), many organizations as well as cloud service providers (including Amazon, Google, and VMWare) are looking to container deployment to expedite releases with new, lower strain on dependencies. Offering flexible deployment in addition to heightened security through resource isolation and microservice architecture, Docker allows companies to spin up consistent, stable, and secure environments for everything from development to sales demos. O'Reilly's 2015 State of Containers and the Docker Ecosystem found 65% of organizations polled are leveraging containers, of which 78% of those specifically use Docker. At Praecipio Consulting, we've partnered with Docker to offer integrated CaaS solutions for teams leveraging Atlassian, helping industry-leaders do work faster, better, and at a lower cost.

A smooth running production environment is a beautiful thing. But how do we get there? And how do we ensure that all of our production, staging/test, and development environments stay in sync in order to get there? Today, it seems like everyone in software development is talking about Docker and containers. In fact, according to the 2016 State of the Cloud Survey by RightScale, Docker adoption doubled from 13% to 27% in just one year. Furthermore, 35% of the organizations surveyed reported that they have plans to adopt it soon. 

GROWTH THROUGH CHANGE 

"Organizations that do not or cannot evolve will not last." In the business world, change is constant and necessary, especially when it comes to meeting the dynamic needs of customers. ITIL, or Information Technology Infrastructure Library, is a methodology that helps organizations effectively manage change while putting the customer at the center of the process. ITIL prescribes processes to ensure the customer's needs and requests are handled with ease – from acknowledgement of an issue through the application and evaluation of the solution. 

By Amanda Babb Principal of Delivery One of the things I love about my parents is that any time we get together, I can talk to them about work stuff. My brilliant parents are retired and – to be honest – bored with retirement, so it's an intellectual treat whenever I visit. Mom is a retired teacher with two master's degrees (cue awkward conversation about the whereabouts of my one master's degree), and Dad is a retired portfolio and project manager also with a master's degree (again,…
By Sam Besozzi  The best teams sync with each other. Think of the intangible magic conjured by the Championship-sweeping Chicago Bulls of the 90's, helmed by Michael Jordan. They ran their offense to perfection, playing to the strengths of each team member and executing each step in perfect rhythm to put points on the board. Any member of those teams will tell you their success came not only from having high-performing people but from working together within an established offense, or process.…
YOUR-NEW-MISSION-CONTROL.jpg Imagine you work in an office with a room for every job you do- each project, each team. However, there is no communication between rooms- so you have to walk from one to another if you want to share project information or ask questions. This seems ridiculous in real life, but yet business teams still fail to leverage integration of tools due to disparate legacy systems (“IT uses Product X while Business Teams are on Product Y”),…
