Devops Tools

DevOps has many levels of complexity. The cultural shift and the organizational structure are the hardest ones in my opinion.

Another one is simply the wealth of tools in that space. I really like the page that XebiaLabs put together. They formatted it like the periodic table of elements which helps you to select tools for a certain domain, e.g. repository management.

Unfortunately the page is not quite complete, nevertheless, it is a good starting point.

Once your company has decided to adopt DevOps, that’s when the hard work actually begins. Typically Development and IT-Operations are separated organizationally. How do you bring the two together? What’s the best approach for your company and how do the different approaches compare to each other?

All those questions are non-trivial to figure out. For me, the work of Matthew Skelton and Manuel Pais really helped me to bring order to the various patterns and anti-patterns that exist.

I highly recommend you take a look at their work:
