Figure 1. Domains of people, process, and technology

As part of the service we approach and assess DevOps across the following domains:


  • People—Teams have accountability through the entire software lifecycle. They develop the software and ensure its quality.
  • Process—An agile methodology must be implemented to increase the frequency at which software is deployed.
  • Technology—DevOps relies on a broad set of tools for CI/CD, automation, provisioning, and management among others.

We partner with you to review your DevOps capabilities across these three domains (Figure 1) and provide a road map and plan for improvement.


Because everyone’s journey and needs are different, the HPE DevOps Roadmap for Cloud service has three offerings:
