DevSecOps is your first and last step to digital transformation, digital transformation is well underway with many applications already on the cloud utilizing agile and devops methodologies, essentially, devsecops highlights the often-neglected aspect of security across the development pipeline.

DevOps is all about a culture of an organization, processes, and technology to develop communication and collaboration between Development and IT Operations teams to manage application life-cycles more effectively than the existing ways of doing it, business executives are significantly more optimistic about their organisations adoption of DevOps and security-focused DevSecOps practices than development managers and team members, according to an extensive review that also highlights the need for a DevOps foundation before security response automation can even be considered, furthermore, some devops teams might start with a strategic project, something big and important to organization, to truly test the devops process.

If you have a team, you can assign hourly rates to track project costs and budget, and see if the value of the time each employee tracked is greater than the fee/salary, this means expanding initial wins to other teams (geographically and business units), promoting the tangible benefits, and being brave enough to challenge established thinking; what agile and devops, or devsecops, are talking about is really the ability to continuously deliver capability so that you take down the risk of delivering the wrong thing.

Issue management solutions make it easy to track bugs, manage defects, and gain visibility over the entire development lifecycle, starting your devops implementation strategy small will allow you as the enterprise CTO to achieve early results which will enable you to scale up, but also enable best practices for devsecops development teams to develop secure code and track security issues the same as software issues – if infrastructure is now code, then security should be code.

As team members witness first-hand the benefits of sharing and transparency, they will open up more and more, making themselves more valuable in the process, value driven teams strive to limit ambition and find the minimum viable product (mvp).

Organizations increasingly understand that if you transform development and embrace DevOps, you must transform security as well, while devops is a culture shift with a focus on collaboration and communication, devops engineers at the end of the day are primarily responsible for getting software delivered to consumers.

The holy grail of DevOps is to be able to launch a new version by pressing a button (or running a command) that would trigger the release process automatically, or even better, a system that would release a new version of your software at a designated time by the same token it must be business-driven, integrated across teams, iterative and use the right analytics and enable feedback loops. 

To move the needle at your organization, after all, to truly benefit from a DevOps mindset, the whole organization needs to embrace it, from the technology teams, to the other departments and the customers regardless of whether you are on the security team, the DevOps team or executive team.
