The public discussion of DevOps as a movement empowering organizations to encourage collaboration between IT departments in order to enable automation and expedite business objectives, will have subdued in five years’ time, and probably well earlier. This according to Keith Pleas, DevOps Architecture Senior Manager for globally respected IT consulting firm Accenture, in an interview at DevOps World 2018 in San Francisco for The New Stack Makers.
Everybody would like to be the “miracle worker” in the IT operations side of the organization that saves the day and sees projects through on time, Pleas acknowledged. “But the challenge is, technology is moving against that.
“‘Continuous’ implies what? Automation,” he continued. “The automation is coming for the automation. In the next one, two, three, five, ten years, DevOps will be configuration settings, and that’ll be about it.”
