Stop Turning DevOps Into The New Web 2.0

As freshly minted engineers in the early 2000s, many were eager to learn about everything in the software space, however the topic of “Web 2.0” often eluded the young cohort. Web 2.0 lacked a clear definition, there were often opposing voices in the form of a blog, or interview, claiming everything people knew about Web 2.0 was wrong. Pundits argued the “real” Web 2.0 was not a trivialised “thing the average Joe talked about” – rather, “it was a much subtler affair.” What typically followed was a word soup either aimed at pitching a vendor’s uniqueness or raising the author’s profile, instead of clarifying what Web 2.0 was.

Taking DevOps to the next level

Businesses will always strive for faster, bigger and better. It often makes sense to adopt software that can really move the needle on making those broad goals a reality – optimising systems, internal processes, and customer interactions. Every business has unique processes, so a one-size-fits-all approach won’t deliver the best results here. For this reason, numerous businesses are now building bespoke software applications – either internally or through suppliers. By Nick Ford, Chief Technology Evangelist at Mendix.
