DevOps: A Culture Shift, Not A Technology

Andi Mann, author and VP at CA Technologies, says DevOps is a horrible term but a necessary IT culture change.

DevOps is not a new technology or a product, contends Andi Mann, VP of strategic solutions at CA Technologies. Although his company offers a list of DevOps products, Mann advises, "if someone tells you, 'I'll sell you DevOps,' get up and leave the meeting." Likewise, it's not a specific discipline or methodology. Nor is it a new role in IT.
