The Anatomy of an Effective Executive #Infographic #Business

To be an executive means more than just occupying the highest position in the organization that you belong to. As the famous line from Spider-Man goes, “with great power comes great responsibility”. Thus, one must really have the perfect balance of knowledge, attitude, training and experience to be considered a competent executive.

Some people think that executives can be made. However, if one doesn’t qualify beforehand, then training is nothing. It is best first to know if one possesses the traits a person should have even before chasing that executive dream.

It’s a combination of every little thing, from the skills that you should learn to that executive look you must nail. Then again, there’s no perfect science that actually teaches you how to become one. However, with this helpful guide to being an effective executive, you could make things easier and find out if you have the makings of an effective company executive.

What is DevOps and how does it help organizations? #Infographic #DevOps

There is a lot of confusion on what DevOps actually is. Many consider it as a gradual change in processes while other consider it as a change in methodologies or IT tools. To us, it is nothing but an organized cultural transformation that every business must adopt to become a high performing company.

DevOps is a term that collated two emerging trends. One is the adoption of agile or lean approaches for development and delivery. Companies have adopted “agile operations” at their core to ensure continuous and flawless development. However, the pressure to deliver products on a continuous basis gave rise to another trend that mixes development with operations. This is what DevOps is. We can see that DevOps is just a way in which companies need to operate.

Given the pressure to deliver high-quality code faster with less time available for quality assurance, DevOps attempts to streamline the process and set guidelines on how different teams should interact with each other and ensures a right quality product is delivered on right times. This speaks of how DevOps is a cultural change, however without support from appropriate tools and technologies it is just a vague concept. To make life easier, I have summarized the life cycle of DevOps in the form of an infographic.
