Join us for a complimentary webinar: DevOps: Moving Beyond Early Adopters to Pragmatic Acceptance on Thursday, May 15th at 11am (Eastern) – Register
Presenter: Alan Shimel,Editor-in-Chief, DevOps.com
Just about every technology trend over the last 30 years has followed a similar pattern. Originally championed by a dedicated core of enthusiasts, it gathers adherents among those willing to live at the bleeding edge. Over time champions emerge who seek to spread the word on the benefits of the technology. These visionaries eventually come to a chasm that separates early adopters from the vast majority of the mainstream. Some technologies cross the chasm, others fall in.
DevOps is now at precipice of the chasm. It appears to have the momentum to make the leap. Why? How will it affect you? Separating the fact from the hype, examining the truth behind the myth, learn how DevOps is not a threat to IT jobs, but can be the greatest catalyst of improved performance that we have seen in IT for a long time

Crossing the chasm is real, but marketers need to keep their eye on the desires of the buyers rather than their actual behavior (that’s the job of the sales person), what I call the Technology Adoption Doppler Effect (http://storizabautpipol.com/2014/04/25/technology-adoption-doppler-effect/).
