One question

Q: What role does Big Data play in DevOps and IT service delivery?

A: The lofty goals of agility fall flat on their faces because production will often take a long time to put the new application (“yet another version of the application”) onto their run-time systems. Which is why there is so much interest in DevOps—the linking of development and operations using automation, sharing of applications models, and even organizational alignment between development and operations. What Big Data allows us to do is to take agility and DevOps one stage further and “close the loop” from release of a product to starting to work on the next version.
