In the last radar issue we advised against creating a separate DevOps team, as DevOps is about creating a culture of shared responsibility in delivery teams. We recommend embedding operations skills into delivery teams to reduce friction and deliver better outcomes. However where there is a need for significant investment in tooling and automation, we do see a role for a Delivery Engineering team. Rather than being a helpdesk, these teams build tooling and enable teams to deploy, monitor, and maintain their own production environments.
We'd love to hear about your experience with our website and how you think we can improve.
