Incorporating DevOps into the PMO’s future is necessary to keep up with the fast-paced evolution of IT services. Because in today’s digital age, organizations face increasing pressure to deliver results faster than ever. Traditionally, when a feature request came in, IT would wait until the PMO assessed it before assigning resources and processes for centralized IT operations. However, waiting for lengthy assessments is no longer an option. The answer? DevOps. This innovative philosophy is quickly transforming how IT services are delivered, similar to Agile, but with an even greater emphasis on speed and efficiency. DevOps encourages collaboration across teams, embraces automation and creates a culture of continuous improvement. By adopting this approach, organizations can keep pace with the rapid pace of change and stay ahead of the digital disruption that is taking over.
The PMO’s role in DevOps cannot be overstated. In the past, choosing the right methodology, like PRINCE2, Waterfall, Scrum, Lean, and Kanban, was critical to project success. Today, organizations need to tear down the barriers between business and IT. Some organizations have labeled this as ‘digital business transformation’ or ‘digital disruption.’ It’s time to be agile and embrace the change. With DevOps, organizations can accomplish better alignment, collaboration, and empathy between IT Development and IT Operations teams.
By adopting this holistic philosophy, you can improve alignment between Development and Operations teams, increase collaboration and empathy, as well as speed up delivery cycles for better business results. At the PMO, we have witnessed first-hand how effective DevOps is in driving successful projects – don’t wait any longer to start reaping the benefits!
