Executive Overview

DevOps as the Norm in the Next Normal

The concept of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) was introduced by Ben Treynor, the founder of Google’s SRE team. He had noticed that no existing architectural method at the time could meet the unique requirements of developing large-scale apps. In short: SRE is an approach to software development that creates a bridge between developers and IT operations with the primary focus to ensure system reliability and automate as many tasks as possible.

While 22% of organizations have deployed SRE in some shape or form in 2020, there are many questions, challenges, and differences to understand. We offer the SRE SKILbook to practitioners, leaders, and coaches who are wanting to understand why, how, and what needs to be done to initiate and drive SRE within their organizations. This SKILbook offers vision, skills, metrics, and many other best practices to start adopting DevOps.
