DevOps and SAP ERP: Is it Possible?

I’ve been briefing analysts these last few weeks, primarily those in the ALM, DevOps or ITSM practice areas. It’s an exercise I really enjoy. Not only does it offer an opportunity to find out what is top of mind for analysts (i.e. customers) but it also helps validate our approach to businesses and organizations.

When it comes to managing SAP changes, things are beginning to look different for SAP IT teams. Building a DevOps capability is becoming important.

Pathways to Accelerated SAP Change Delivery: Multi Path Development and Release Management

Over the last few posts I’ve been discussing some of the things SAP IT teams will need to address on their journey to accelerated SAP change delivery.

Signs Your SAP IT Team May Be About To Journey To Agile or DevOps

Recently, I came across a post outlining the steps for development teams to successfully start a DevOps transformation. In his post, John Jeremiah, points out that for a successful proactive transformation certain stars need to align. That is a business need for velocity and speed and management’s impatience with the current pace of change.

However, in speaking with SAP IT teams looking at a DevOps transformation it almost always is in reaction to pressure from the business rather than a proactive change in approach. So how can an SAP IT team better anticipate the need for change and become a little more proactive?

The Role of Process Maturation and Process Automation in SAP DevOps

Last posting I mentioned some component areas, tenets for success, SAP IT teams will need to address on their journey to a fully implemented DevOps approach. In this post, I’ll elaborate on the first couple. To progress towards a DevOps approach, change control processes need to be robust and clearly understood by all involved. Development, QA, Testing, Business and the Functional teams. There are different types of change, and so changes will be processed in different ways. It’s not rocket science, but it is still surprising how many teams still struggle with this relatively simple concept. Managing change with a ‘one size fits all’ single process will not work in a DevOps / agile environment.
