Anyone who understands DevOps at all will tell you that this approach requires much more than merely buying a new set of tools. Being successful with DevOps requires a true cultural transformation, and that takes a lot more work than just deploying some new applications.

However, if you’re going to be successful with DevOps, you probably also need to invest in some new software.

If your organization is currently in the midst of a DevOps initiative, you’re not alone. The Interop 2018 State of DevOps report found that 33% of the enterprises surveyed had already implemented DevOps and another 35% planned to do so within a year. Only 9% said they had no plans to adopt the approach.

The benefits of DevOps are clear. A Frost & Sullivan report titled "How Software is Helping Business Executives Achieve Their KPIs," which was sponsored by CA Technologies, found, "Three out of four executives interviewed believe DevOps practices help them get new apps to market faster and improve the quality and security of their applications."

At its heart, DevOps is about encouraging closer cooperation between developers and operations staff. It’s about applying the principles of agile and lean development to infrastructure management. It’s about speeding up IT to help the business win. And it relies on automation to help make IT more efficient and responsive to customers.

Achieving all those goals requires some significant changes within IT department. And implementing those changes becomes far easier when organizations have the right tooling in place.

Exactly what kinds of tooling do DevOps teams need? The following slides highlight nine types of software that enable DevOps teams to transform their culture and processes to help their organizations win.
