Submission + - Where Agile Development Fails: IT Operations ( 1

gManZboy writes: "The incremental sprints to deliver working software and frequent interactions with business stakeholders that agile requires are widely cheered for keeping software projects focused on practical goals. But there's a growing movement to improve agile by making developers accountable for more.
This improvement effort goes by many names: continuous integration, continuous delivery, deployment pipelining, or just plain "dev ops." Instead of developers being congratulated solely for finishing code that meets the business users' requirements on time and on budget, they would also be held more responsible for how easily it deploys, how few bugs turn up in production, and how well it runs. It's undoubtedly a tall order."

Never appeal to a man's "better nature." He may not have one. Invoking his self-interest gives you more leverage. -- Lazarus Long
