The DevOps journey at Microsoft

See how teams across Microsoft are transforming through DevOps adoption

The promise and challenge of DevOps

By changing the way we work through DevOps, we deliver better products to our customers and better results to the business. But DevOps adoption isn’t easy. Beyond implementing new processes and technology, the ultimate key to a successful DevOps practice is embracing a DevOps culture. And cultural change is hard, especially in a large company that’s been building technology for decades.

At Microsoft, we know a lot about this challenge. Here are stories of some of the experimentation and learning we’ve experienced in our ongoing DevOps journey.
