Start small and get some quick wins. You need association and visibility into the total toolchain even while using various different tools. Without that, you’re creating silos more quickly than when doing manually (most common fail). Doing automation without fixing the process or culture and respecting the need to have visibility across the value stream and CI/CD pipeline. Understand the KPIs and metrics to know if you’re getting better.
The fallout from Jenkins World is pipeline management and visibility. No one is watching everything embedded in scripts. How to incorporate a DevOps pipeline with a legacy pipeline? If you can’t measure you cannot manage and continuously improve. Look at the delivery pipeline as a system.
Three difficulties of scale:
1) The perceptibility of the portfolio,
2) Impedance management between the old world and new world, looking at the delivery pipeline;
3) Continuous enhancement needs to be measured and valued.
Getting to the metrics of the delivery. Be able to answer whether or not you are doing better than before. How are you solving problems – not giving up, getting stuck, and slowing down? Looking at other approaches like tools to measure application delivery, value stream management, visibility into the process.
Place DevOps for repeatable methods and can keep watch on metrics. Measure and ensure meeting KPIs. Place in procedures and process to make sure every test is repeatable and scalable. Take a baseline and deploy over and over again. Get a baseline and anything about that is your metrics coming in. Need data to qualify a particular.
CI and CD
Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery are frequent aspects of DevOps execution, but they are not one and the same. DevOps is more about structure and process than tools. It’s easy to think a DevOps tool or solution is a quick path to the promised land when, in fact, it’s much more about how individuals on a team, and teams, work together with a concentration on quickly, efficiently and securely delivering business value. In order to have a successful DevOps adoption, companies must make sure team members represent the appropriate functions and are moving toward the same goal.
This starts with effective communication and common incentives. Development and operations teams already have many common goals like security and customer satisfaction, but in the past, they were often motivated by different concerns; development teams focused on software quality and on-time delivery, whereas operations teams centered on system stability and uptime. Aligning these mindsets is extremely important. If these cross-functional teams have more business value-focused ways of measuring their performance like feature lead time, mean time to recovery and deployment frequency, then they’ll have something closer to a common definition of success.
When that shared definition occurs, teams will begin to experience success together, helping to eliminate some of these barriers to acceptance.

Results with a feedback loop from external and internal customers for developers to get quicker feedback on functionality and bugs. Looking for gaps and bottlenecks. DevOps Dojo idea brings into line space where people can become engrossed in the DevOps culture. Create an organization toolchain and permit people to use and flex outside as necessary.
Improving the value stream starts with visualizing the value stream. Begin by creating a visual baseline of the value stream including process time, wait time, percent complete, and accuracy with efficiency KPIs. Capture work-in-progress – how much is there and how does it affect what you’re doing.
Make sure the work you are doing as a portion of the delivery pipeline is tied back to strategic work and business value. A graph chart that indicates a number of binds to source control, modification show what is delivering business value and what is not. In order to measure the effectiveness of what you are doing, you need to match the change to what you are doing to planned and unplanned work. In the delivery pipeline of DevOps was a black box. Allow more resources KPIs and information to non-technical resources so understand how well they are doing.
