In the past, quarterly production deployments took place overnight with a team of people on call to get a release working. Deployments were expensive, complex, inconsistent, and frustrating on so many levels.
Since then, IT teams have implemented automation solutions such as Red Hat® Ansible® Automation to help make deployments easier, faster, and more consistent. Ansible Automation can take some time to master, but learning the tool is seldom a problem for most organizations.
There are, however, other challenges organizations might encounter when implementing an automation solution. Both technical and cultural challenges can impact their ability to fully benefit from an automation solution.
In this session, we will focus on the cultural transformation aspect and offer some best practices to cut through these challenges to turn your project into a success, including:
- The importance of defining a vision.
- Defining automation.
- Building a feedback loop.
- Becoming a learning organization.
