Moving Up The DevOps Maturity Curve

“I don't get no respect”
       - Rodney Dangerfield.
Most DevOps automation engineers probably feel the same way Rodney Dangerfield did. While they work hard to make CI/CD frictionless and ship applications faster than ever before, other principles of DevOps like culture and collaboration get much more attention than automation. Organizations expect DevOps to help accelerate software releases and ship better quality products, but they often underestimate the time and investment that is needed to implement the automation that will get them close to the nirvana of Continuous Delivery.
 
There is a reason, however, why automation has failed to capture the attention of the DevOps community: relative to the other aspects like culture and collaboration, automation tooling is a laggard and hasn't matured to a point where it can help accelerate the evolution of the process of shipping software from craft to industry. Simply put, automation tools available today are too primitive and are on the lower end of the maturity curve.
