In addition, it describes the benefits and challenges of addressing these issues so that CIOs and IT leaders can assess for themselves the relative importance of strategic architecture in the context of their enterprise, strategies, goals, and challenges."DevOps practices should be part of every CIOs tool kit," says Stephen Elliot, research vice president for DevOps in IDC's IT Executive Program.
