In the Interop survey, organizations that were not planning to adopt DevOps were asked to name the top reasons why they weren't planning to adopt DevOps methodologies or tools. Nearly a third (31%) of respondents said a lack of expertise was preventing DevOps adoption. In the same vein, when IT decision makers were asked to name the major challenges to implementing a DevOps strategy in their organizations, 23% said that they lacked the right skills within development and operations.

For organizations that find themselves in this situation, taking advantage of one of the many DevOps training programs available might help them remedy the lack of skills on their teams. Or they may choose to hire new personnel who are already familiar with DevOps.
