Redesign Your Engineering Org for Efficiency
Across most industries this year, leaders in all functions are working through difficult prioritization and budget justification exercises. Spending that was previously approved with minimal scrutiny is now being put under the microscope by finance and procurement teams. Software engineering organizations aren’t exempt from these intense audits, but development teams still have products to ship and expectations to meet. Now they’re attempting to pull it off with more limited resources.
Accelerate Developer Teams with Platform Engineering
Engineering organizations often look for ways to improve their engineering teams’ efficiency. The more efficient the team, the faster they can ship new features and products to their customer base. From this need for efficiency, combined with developer empathy, we’ve seen the rise of DevOps and site reliability engineering across the industry.
Functional Teams Drive Service Ownership–Not HR Org Charts
Enabling Service Ownership is our north star at OpsLevel. We believe that true service ownership is the future of DevOps and a key to building agile, efficient engineering teams. As a part of making service ownership a reality, we’ve recognized that teams own services, not people. But of course, when you need to get something done urgently, you want to talk to a person, not a team. That’s why OpsLevel now supports tracking functional team membership alongside core service metadata.
Why Is DevOps Important? A Philosophical Look for 2021
The term “DevOps” entered the IT industry in 2009 with the first DevOpsDays event held in Ghent, Belgium. But the world is constantly changing. Since 2009, the IT space has shifted dramatically. Containers, microservices, and “serverless” computing have all taken the world by storm in the last decade. The term “DevOps” has also undergone a sort of transformation, though OpsLevel is bringing it back to its roots of Service Ownership.
