Kill DevOps

There is much hype around DevOps, so what are we actually talking about?
How do you ‘sell’ DevOps to business executives who don’t understand IT?
No business value is realized until the users actually use the systems well but this is often the weakest link in the IT value chain, so you need to extend your scope.
But why “Kill DevOps”? This refers to an ancient Zen saying about a monk’s journey towards enlightenment and awakening. If you think that you’ve found Buddha, think again, because you never will. It’s the same with DevOps: it’s about continuous experimentation and learning.
