Why is this important?
- Does ITIL make sense in an era of continuous delivery and integration?
- Will the volume of applications and sites overwhelm the management methodology?
- Distributed IT is not well versed in ITIL
- Does DevOps include formal review? Shouldn’t Tier 0 sites and apps get reviewed for changes?
- Almost all respondents have a formal Change process and board
- Divided on if PaaS/SaaS need formal change reviews
- Some said that changes are only managed for major changes
- Most respondents not mature yet with DevOps practices
- Some groups doing agile development, but not all
