How SAFe embraces DevOps
DevOps and Release on Demand
The Scaled Agile Framework serves the business imperative of making organizations more agile in responding to digital disruption. DevOps and Release on Demand play key roles in ensuring greater enterprise agility. They are critical enablers of the ability to release on demand by overcoming traditional misalignments across Value Streams.
SAFe® enterprises implement DevOps to break down silos and empower each Agile Release Train (ART) and solution train to continuously deliver new features to their end users. Over time, the separation between development and operations is significantly reduced, and trains operate with an automated, continuous delivery pipeline. This mechanism seamlessly defines, implements, and delivers solution elements to the end user, without handoffs or excessive external production or operations support. The result is a more flexible and stable production environment that is able to deliver value more frequently.
SAFe’s CALMR approach—Culture, Automation, Lean-Flow, Measurement, and Recovery—to scaling DevOps and continuous delivery creates the foundation teams need to release value on demand.
