Publisher's Summary

Many organizations are facing the uphill battle of modernizing their legacy IT infrastructure. Most have evolved over the years by taking lessons from traditional or legacy manufacturing to create a production process that puts the emphasis on the process instead of the people performing the tasks. This allows the organization to treat people like resources to try to achieve high-quality outcomes. But those practices and ideas are failing modern IT, where collaboration and creativeness are required to achieve high-performing, high-quality success.

Mirco Hering, a thought leader in managing IT within legacy organizations, lays out a road map to success for IT managers and tells them how to create the right ecosystem, how to empower people to bring their best to work every day, and how to put the right technology in the driver's seat to propel their organization to success.

But just having the right methods and tools will not magically transform an organization. The cultural change is the hardest and the most impactful. Using principles from Agile, Lean, and DevOps as well as firsthand examples from the enterprise world, Hering addresses the different challenges that legacy organizations face as they transform into modern IT departments.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

great first chapter, but then it got weak

I really enjoyed the early chapter on batch sizes, but the rest didn't contribute much with actual advice that gets me closer to doing microservices.

Just OK

This book fails to inspire but gets the basic message across. I find the reader rather boring and uninspiring. DevOps is friggin exciting and powerful!! That fact is lost on this book.

great advice for all maturity levels.

Very practical advice. The author has obviously spent a lot of time developing their skill and we are fortunate enough to learn from it.

Good overview of modern DevOps practices.

The book provides a good overview of modern practices. I found the value stream concepts and practices particularly useful however am not so sure if they are practically applicable to legacy IT organisations. Political boundaries are the biggest issue and this seems to be overlooked in the book. Powerful leaders and executives can make this happen though. Overall, a good read for those in this field.

Poor narration

Subject matter was good but the tone of the narration is awfully unnatural.

Extremely difficult to follow, I would refund it if I could.
