Tools in DevOps

A session at DevOps and Continuous Delivery: Successful Adoption, 18 September 2014, Chicago

Tools are an absolutely essentially component of a DevOps implementation, and without that without the right tools, an organization will never be able to achieve the efficiency, cost-effectiveness, repeatability, and scalability that DevOps can bring.

Of course, finding the right tool is not easy, especially in a field as new and as fluid as DevOps. Although the hammer is one of the best tools of all time, most of the world’s problems do not involve pounding nails – and if you treat every problem like a nail, you’ll end up with a lot more problems.
Before deciding on which tool to use, you should understand what problem you have and what tools were built to solve which problems. In this talk, I’ll discuss categories of tools, some specific tools, and how they fit into a DevOps and Continuous Delivery landscape.

Some tool categories discussed: Continuous Delivery, Infrastructure Automation, Deployment Automation, Configuration Management.
