An IT Professional’s role in the world of DevOps is becoming increasingly important. The fluidity of application creation and implementation solely relies on the collaboration between developers and IT administrators alike for the benefit on behalf of the organization they support.
The biggest challenge IT professionals face in adopting DevOps methodology is relinquishing demands for control. Management is still very much a focus for IT professionals however one’s mindset must now focus on secure enablement without sacrificing end user productivity. This is a tall order and for some IT professionals, a daunting task.
