DevOps is an often misunderstood term. So often, in fact, that I imagine most companies who think they’re doing DevOps aren’t. Instead, they’re probably doing one of these common anti-patterns:
The Ops-to-DevOps rename
Add a separate DevOps team
The common thread in both of these specific anti-patterns is the existence of a “DevOps Team”. DevOps is not a team effort, it’s a cross-team effort. It’s a culture, a set of practices, cooperation, if you will. It only works when it encompasses the entire way of software development and delivery.
