Transformation Framework offers a structured approach to move to DevOps

London, UK – July 28, 2015 – Grant Smith, pioneer of the Next Gen DevOps (NGDO) movement, has launched his Next Gen DevOps Transformation Framework on Github. It comes after the success of Grant’s book, Next Gen DevOps: Creating the DevOps Organisation, released last year.

The NGDO Transformation Framework offers a structured approach to a business-wide transition to DevOps. Underscoring the nature and complexity of moving to DevOps, the framework enables organisations to choose which challenge to tackle first, outlining the benefits at each stage of the transformation.

The NGDO Transformation Framework is designed to help organisations assess their DevOps capabilities and prioritise projects to deliver improvements to existing functions – as well as deliver new ones.

Additionally, the Framework offers the ability to execute a series of projects that can individually progress an organisation’s capabilities, delivering real-world value. The projects are also designed so that they can be used together to enable additional capabilities with minimal little extra work.

The Next Gen DevOps movement merges behaviour-driven development, infrastructure-as-code, automated testing, monitoring and continuous integration into a single coherent process.

Armed with the lessons taken from the Agile software development movement, combined with the latest in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions, cloud computing and automated testing, NGDO is Grant Smith’s vision for the biggest evolution of business IT yet.

“There is no better time than now to transition to the new ways of thinking outlined in my NGDO Framework,” Grant Smith says. “Using this framework, businesses can increase their efficiency and responsiveness and enable more agile ways of working.”

The Next Gen DevOps Transformation Framework is open source and licensed under the Creative Commons CC0 1.0 Universal (CC0 1.0) licence.
