Gartner: Adapt Your Application Architecture Practices to Work Better With DevOps Teams
Over half of organizations now use DevOps, but application leaders struggle to get DevOps teams to accept application architecture guidance. The reason for this resistance is that the practices of application architecture and development have diverged as DevOps has gained prominence, resulting in a conflict between application architecture teams and DevOps teams. To gain their DevOps team’s acceptance of application architecture guidance and ensure the success of their organization’s DevOps initiatives, application leaders must understand and take steps to resolve the conflict.
By reading this complimentary report, we believe you will learn how to:
- Ensure your application architects interact effectively with DevOps team members by understanding each of their individual roles
- Match the cadence of your application architecture work to that of your DevOps teams by changing your application architecture practices to provide ongoing, principle-based guidance, and embracing the feedback from this process
- Introduce architecture requirements and promote consistency by having your application architects monitor and influence the backlog of each team
