The value of software is only potential value until it is in users’ hands. There can be many roadblocks to software getting into those hands. These roadblocks tend to revolve around elaborate deployment pipelines stemming from Configuration Management Debt:
• Over-burdened release engineering and operations teams
• High coupling with centrally managed architecture element/component
• Source control practices that impact delivery velocity
• Too many variations/versions of the software supported in production
• Poor integration processes across architecture components and scaled team delivery
• Too many hand-offs between teams in order to release software to users
• Code changes feel too risky and takes too long to validate before releasing into production
• Poor documentation practices
This presentation will focus on how to reduce Configuration Management Debt.
