Today, many IT organizations are embracing the concepts behind DevOps to become a facilitator of rapid change. The rate and volume of changes are increasing dramatically.
In the past 30 years, IT organizations tried to control or even block changes to ‘their’ systems. However, fueled by the Windows 10 update cadence, the move to the cloud and more demanding ‘customers’ IT organizations realize that they need to rethink the way they manage the digital workspace. Existing processes and tools are becoming antiquated and simply cannot keep up.

- Continuous performance and availability testing
Continuous Compatibility Testing
Changes to the digital workplace are coming from all over the place. At any point in time you may need to deploy any combination of operating system updates, application updates, anti-virus updates, security policy changes, new applications, hypervisor updates, firmware patches and probably more.

Continuous Performance and Availability Testing
Most IT organizations end-user computing engineers are faced with changes (and outages) that are beyond the scope of their responsibility. Often, they are unaware of changes pushed to production by third-parties that affect their systems. These changes may have degradation of performance and availability as a result.
Those IT organization running an agile process, know that the ability to deploy changes faster goes hand in hand with the ability to deploy fixes faster. The first step in restoring productivity is the ability to quickly detect and identify degradations.
