As part of the Rackspace DevOpsBreakfast event in August 2014, we discussed the future of teams, responsibilities, and outsourcing in a DevOps context; this was in response to a question from Sean Ferigan (@ferigan):
How do you see DevOps evolving over, say, the next few years? Are there any particular trends emerging?
Here is the interview on YouTube:
Essentially, we see organisations exploring different team responsibilities, including deciding to insource or outsource some activities. The relationship between teams will be different for each organisation; we’ll see certain patterns for inter-team relationships becoming more standard over time (tried and tested). This will make it easier for an organisation to work out which pattern (team topology) suits them best.
