There has long been a divide between development and operations teams. But recently, there has been a movement, within both small startups and massive enterprise organizations alike, to break down these metaphorical walls and build bridges of shared accountability between the two functions. With the emergence of roles like DevOps and Site Reliability Engineering (SRE), we are seeing the introduction of a more collaborative approach to delivering reliable software.
Still, in the context of increasingly distributed and complex systems and tooling, when things go awry, accountability often remains unclear. In the heat of battle, when an application breaks and customers are feeling the burn, who is ultimately responsible for ensuring application reliability? Do enterprises with DevOps workﬂows have the right processes in place to ensure quick resolution of issues?
