Last week, 451 Research Senior Analyst Jay Lyman and IT expert Dr. Jacob Ukelson came together to discuss the future of IT Release Operations.

In this discussion, they addressed the buzz words that are abundant in today’s IT world; cloud, virtualization, DevOps and continuous deployment. But what do these words really mean and where are we actually headed?

Dr. Ukelson and Mr. Lyman came together to answer these questions and discuss the growing role of DevOps in the enterprise as well as why application centricity is necessary to achieve excellence in release operations. After watching this video, you will understand how application centricity:

  1. Translates into shorter application release cycles
  2. Focuses on incremental releases and
  3. A tighter sense-response loop

Virtualization and cloud technologies enable fast and simple basic provisioning of infrastructure environments, providing the capability to quickly create environments for basic application development and testing.
