Six O´Clock News on TV is a very good example for those who want to run DevOps
Each day at 6 pm, every day in a year, you have to send the news. Regardless of what’s happening. Every major broadcaster in the world achieves this, so why shouldn’t this be possible for your IT-department?
They have a very well engineered production facility that give them the ability to be 100% agile from a content perspective. Whatever news there is, they will broadcast, using the same processes and production systems.
And, if there is a major breaking news, they should be able to make extra shows
The ambition level for your DevOps team is very clear. You should be able to make a new release every day at 18.00, 365 days per year and add security fixes faster if needed.
