DevOps Case Study Resources By @TableListDave | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

These are relevant for a number of verticals and which give valuable insight surrounding dozens of DevOps end-goals

Five DevOps Case Study Resources

By Dave Blumenfeld

One of the things I have come to learn about the DevOps and Continuous Delivery space is that there is no shortage of noise.

There are resources upon resources, blogs upon blogs, and thought-leaders upon thought-leaders all blasting their own particular philosophies and best-practices out into the Internet for all to see and hear.

Unsurprisingly this can turn your research agenda into an endless pursuit making it unbelievably scary when it comes time to execute and start implementing practices or tools in your own pipeline.

This is why in my mind, one of the best places to look when just getting started are case studies.  At the end of the day, experience trumps all.  If you are looking for quick tips on how to execute and avoid the most common pitfalls, why not just learn from other companies who have already succeeded or failed?  The following are 5 great case-study oriented resources (both new & old) that are relevant for a number of verticals and which give valuable insight surrounding dozens of DevOps end-goals.

XebiaLabs Case Studies

We have a number of case studies that give extensive views into how a number of different companies and verticals have solved their DevOps and Continuous Delivery challenges using purpose-built tooling.  A common theme you will see is how companies solve ROI problems and release nightmares by introducing XL Deploy to plug-in alongside or replace patched-together release systems like CI servers such as Jenkins or Configuration Management solutions like Puppet or Chef.


Devops in Practice Book

DevOps in Practice

This is a great dual case study that follows both Nordstrom and Texas.gov and their journeys from first impression of Devops to full-fledged practitioners.  Where many case studies on the subject are highly tool-centric, this study very much captures the design, culture, and practices behind successful DevOps which can help any company navigate organizational pitfalls.  Plus who doesn’t love a good O’Reilly book?


DevOps: A Software Revolution in the Making

Okay, yeah, so it is a bit old (urg, circa 2011), but in this issue of Cutter IT Journal, there are a number of great articles and opinion pieces on DevOps and Continuous Delivery by several industry heavy-weights (Jez Humble and the like), but possibly the most interesting piece is a case-study about Advance Internet, a medium-sized company of about 75 people, and their move towards DevOps.

Youtube DevOps Case Studies

So let’s be honest, most of us learn how to do just about everything on Youtube, and although it might be best not to exclusively base your transition to DevOps from Youtube viewing, there are some great DevOps case study video content.  Plus, you can pretty much expect that there will always be more companies uploading their stories.  Just search DevOps case study!


Lean Enterprise

Lean Enterprise: How High Performance Organizations Innovate at Scale

By now this blog post is probably starting to look more like a plug for O’Reilly books than it is for XebiaLabs products (maybe that is a good thing?), but this book is an invaluable read for one primary reason.  Because DevOps is so “talked about” these days we at XebiaLabs get the feeling that many organizations dive in without truly understanding the underlying change in philosophy, principles and behaviors that are critical to moving fast at scale.  This book ultimately guides the reader through Lean and Agile principles with a number of great case studies, and helps them to focus on the people-power and teamwork elements critical to successful DevOps.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...

Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
