March 9, 2017
Why Read This Report
Given a world where infrastructure is increasingly software-based (including containers, composable infrastructure, and more), systems administrators (sysadmins) must quickly acquire skill sets common among Agile and development and operations (DevOps) professionals. While some infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals have started this journey, many have not. This report offers guidance to admins who are learning to build infrastructure-as-code (IaC) as developers. It also examines what developers can learn from tried-and-tested sysadmin principles.
