Siloed operations holding back DevOps development

DevOps remains an intrinsically useful yet somewhat mysterious technology, according to a recent survey. Case in point, of the executives taking part in the study, 59 percent didn’t have a firm grasp on what DevOps was or what it could do for their organization. Though 41 percent of organizations were leveraging DevOps to some degree, only 17 percent had data that was openly accessible to cross-functional teams. With mobile development ready to take DevOps to the next level, enterprise data needs to catch up.

Championing the cause of AI to its 1.2 billion monthly Messenger users, Facebook will be adding innovative bots and features, thanks to the efforts of its 100,000 developers.
