Kazushige is the IT manager of a large electronics manufacturer based in Osaka, Japan. Recently, his company embarked on a DevOps initiative to upgrade its Salesforce org. The company expected smooth execution of the DevOps project but the initiative soon ran into trouble due to lack of proper visibility — people working on the project had a hard time figuring out which parts of the code were due for release and learning about the status of work done in branches; this created confusion, preventing effective coordination, thereby defeating the very purpose of adopting DevOps.
Neil is in-charge of the IT team of a well-known life insurance firm headquartered in Brooklyn, New York, USA. Three months ago, his organization launched a DevOps project to enhance its Salesforce system to meet a recently-enacted regulatory policy. The company hoped the project would proceed in a hassle-free manner and the enhancement would be completed without delays. Unfortunately, the insurance services provider couldn’t manage code conflicts early on, and this caused serious problems during deployment. As a result, there was a significant overrun of time and cost. Neil had to shoulder the entire blame for the failure of the project.
