Recently, I was asked to give a 15 minute introduction on Quality Strategy in DevOps for our upcoming “Efficient DevOps with SAP” course (coming soon!) and I happily accepted. And then, to my horror of horrors, I realised that I needed to figure out what a Quality Strategy is and what makes it unique in a DevOps world.
Instead of trying to come up with a definition, I started considering what are some quality specific aspects within the CALMS framework that would help a DevOps transformation.
So, here are a few ideas on the Culture, Automation, Lean, Measurement and Sharing aspects to consider that might improve the overall quality of a system, from idea to end user.
