Proving Out Your DevOps Pipeline Using a Minimum Viable Product

Tim Guay

In the rush to be more competitive, an organization is often tempted to do an across-the board, "big bang" implementation. However, taking a big bang approach to implementing a DevOps pipeline carries with it a myriad of risks and challenges that can result in a failed DevOps implementation. Many of these risks and challenges can be mitigated or even eliminated by developing a DevOps minimum viable product (MVP). Join Tim Guay as he discusses how to apply an MVP concept to DevOps. You'll understand how to effectively test the end-to-end functionality of your DevOps pipeline and provide just enough functionality and architecture to prove out the pipeline at minimal cost and risk. Learn how to flesh out any issues with proposed tooling, continuous integration and delivery, and processes and pipeline architecture, as well as how to address silo and cultural issues. You'll take home useful knowledge on the advantages of applying an MVP approach to DevOps pipeline implementation as well as how to design a DevOps MVP for your organization.
