In the Introduction of this Blog Series we mentioned that Control is the No. 1 reason (in our experience that is) as to why enterprise business is afraid to make the switch to the cloud. We first introduced the current state of DevOps as being asymmetric – which to date the majority of companies are corralled in this category, though according to Forbes, the adoption of DevOps in enterprises is up 71%.* Even with all the pitfalls and money wasting problems, we have found businesses like having management in-house and their problems close to vest so they can remedy issues quickly – or so they think. Next, we introduced Symmetry DevOps™ by PvDC, where we discussed all the benefits of why a cloud environment (hybrid or 100%) can not only be more efficient and cost productive, but it can be managed close to vest as well.
Without the symmetric environment, Test-Dev is very convoluted. It’s disjointed. With coding for the exceptions as the rule, the full System Development Life Cycle (SDLC) is disjointed as well. It takes a lot of time and energy to run applications through an asymmetric environment with all its bits and pieces, and it makes running an app from start to finish as difficult as putting together IKEA furniture without instructions.
