CA Services conducts this assessment in a mixed-model collaborative workshop supported with resources such as a library of hundreds of questions focused on DevOps.
The team follows a structured approach tailored to your organization to evaluate areas that can impede (or help to accelerate) DevOps maturity:
Data captured includes objective system and process information plus subjective
- Development processes
- Deployment processes
- Release management
- Test and quality management
- Environment configuration
- Continuous delivery automation
- IT operations
perspectives from interviews and other observations. The CA Services team analyzes the data using a proven DevOps maturity model to identify areas of strength, gaps and potential barriers to future growth.
The assessment can be performed for a single application, multiple applications or multiple application clusters. Many questions can be tailored to either individual applications or groups of applications using the same development methodology, tools and delivery principles.
The outcome of the CA DevOps Assessment can serve as baseline for creating a DevOps roadmap, tuning the organization’s DevOps strategy and establishing DevOps transformation initiatives. This baseline data can also be used to improve awareness and understanding of DevOps, foster better cross-team communication, monitor and report on progress for specific areas such as automation.
Some organizations may prefer a smaller scale assessment either before or after a full DevOps assessment. These organizations may choose an abbreviated or limited scope sub-assessment for one or more of the following categories: deployment, release and environment.
- DevOps maturity baseline report
- Heat map indicating maturity in a matrix of applications and areas
- Detailed gap analysis per area and application
- Management summary including DevOps maturity level
