Thank you Sara. When you write, "Automation is key", does that include using SaaS for components of your stack? Example: rather than setup your own git server, use GitHub.

If so, can we say that DevOps' automation mindset is driving the adoption of cloud services? ... or is that a stretch too far?

Hi Al, thank you for the question!

I would say it doesn’t have to be. You can set up and maintain your own git server and automate your software delivery on your own, any way you believe it’s best for the business. My belief is that using SaaS for automation can help your productivity and drive more efficient use of the cloud space.
