Another book every Software Developer and IT professional should have in his/her collection is The Phoenix Project.
This is a tale about a company going through its DevOps journey as they face many problems jeopardizing nearly every commitment the business makes in Development, IT Operations, and Information Security.
A well written book describing the DevOps movement and why lots of companies are strongly investing their time and resources into it.
This is non-technical which goes through the various steps, phases and levels of the organisation
“Bill is an IT manager at Parts Unlimited. It’s Tuesday morning and on his drive into the office, Bill gets a call from the CEO.
The company’s new IT initiative, code named Phoenix Project, is critical to the future of Parts Unlimited, but the project is massively over budget and very late. The CEO wants Bill to report directly to him and fix the mess in ninety days or else Bill’s entire department will be outsourced.
With the help of a prospective board member and his mysterious philosophy of The Three Ways, Bill starts to see that IT work has more in common with manufacturing plant work than he ever imagined. With the clock ticking, Bill must organize work flow streamline interdepartmental communications, and effectively serve the other business functions at Parts Unlimited.
In a fast-paced and entertaining style, three luminaries of the DevOps movement deliver a story that anyone who works in IT will recognize. Readers will not only learn how to improve their own IT organizations, they’ll never view IT the same way again.”
