PORTLAND, Ore., Oct. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- IT Revolution (http://itrevolution.com), the industry leader for advancing DevOps, today announced the availability of "The DevOps Handbook," a new book dedicated to helping leaders understand how to transform their businesses through DevOps best practices. The book is co-authored by DevOps pioneers, Gene Kim, Jez Humble, Patrick Debois and John Willis – and features a foreword by John Allspaw, chief technology officer at Etsy. It can be purchased from all major book retailers.
"The DevOps Handbook" (itrevolution.com/devops-handbook) is a highly anticipated non-fiction follow-up to "The Phoenix Project," a novel also co-authored by Gene Kim that has sold more than 250,000 copies worldwide. Five years in the making, "The DevOps Handbook" contains more than 400 pages of material including 40 case studies and findings pulled from more than 25,000 data points of research. Each of the four co-authors has helped pioneer DevOps transformations at large companies, is passionate about helping organizations effect positive change and recognizes what is at stake when companies fail. Together they produced "The DevOps Handbook" to drive cultural changes and technical practices that will increase profitability and lead to marketplace wins.
"This is a comprehensive guide that describes the DevOps principles and patterns that enable people to replicate the outcomes of high-performing organizations. Our research has found that these organizations are 2.5 times more likely than their peers to surpass profitability, market share and productivity goals," said Gene Kim, founder of IT Revolution and co-author of "The Phoenix Project" and "The DevOps Handbook." "This book describes the decades of collective experiences of the four co-authors, as well as research of high-performing technology organizations, spanning over 25,000 IT professionals. We hope this book can show how product management, development, quality assurance, operations and information security can help their organizations win in the marketplace."
"The DevOps Handbook" examines the "Three Ways"—the core principles from which all DevOps behaviors can be derived. Leaders will unpack common DevOps Myths, find tips on where to start their DevOps journey, determine who needs to be involved, and learn how to protect, organize and enable their teams. "The DevOps Handbook" also features applicable practices that will shorten and amplify feedback loops and seamlessly sustain the fast flow of work from Dev into Ops.
The authors will be on hand for a formal book signing at the DevOps Enterprise Summit (DOES16)
