So if you’re only interested in the key takeaways from this introduction, here they are:
1. Determine your ITOps model, the direction you want to move in, and a roadmap.
It’s a necessary step before you proceed. If you don’t know your location on the map, there’s no way your journey can be successful. Sooner or later, you’ll hit the rocks.
2. Find a trusted partner to help you build your approach to a reliable digital business.
Trust comes from successful, long-term relationships with partners you rely on. Don’t be afraid to build your business with the support of experts in their respective domains.
It’s fine to turn to more than one partner for help, but you should avoid creating each layer of your model with a different partner.
3. Automation saves money and time.
While your initial automation efforts may be significant cost-wise, the investment pays off over time. There should be room for automation in every aspect of your digital business.
4. Estimate the project accordingly, based on your future needs.
Be agile, change your organization’s culture to support DevOps, and enable digital transformation. Start small and slow, but plan for the big and fast. Work closely with your partner, so that you’re both aware of all the aspects of your business.
5. Include integration of your toolchain.
Disparate or loosely integrated tools can cause more harm than good. Choose your tools wisely (your partner can help you with that), so your integration doesn’t become the development of another platform, adding unnecessary layers and complexity to the model.
6. Don’t try to be perfect.
Start simple and iterate. You will add complexity over time, as your solution grows. Always be agile, no matter what you do.
7. Digital transformation is not about applications.
Instead, it’s all about your company’s culture change.
