If there's any consistent criticism that's been leveled at the DevOps movement, it's that the term comprises such a wide range of concepts to so many different people, and that it's become more closely associated with marketing(link is external) than real-world adoption.
So how do you overcome such critiques? Obviously the onus is upon those of us working in the space — especially on the provider side — to put a finer point on what DevOps (currently) encompasses in a practical sense(link is external). A big part of this must be found in highlighting those real-world use cases where DevOps is having the most significant impact.
Those specific ideas were among the primary targets that my co-authors and I set out to pursue when we began writing our recently released book DevOps for Digital Leaders(link is external). Looking at what we were able to produce, I honestly feel that we hit those goals.
