Pivoting is the action of readjusting after you have tried something and realized that you are not on course or achieving your goal. DevOps did a lot of this in 2015 as it continued its journey as a movement towards business transformation based on better, faster, safer technology use.

What's Different About DevOps?

Posted by Helen Beal on Wed, Dec 9, 2015 @ 14:12 PM

We've spent a lot of time with organisations in recent years trying to define DevOps - and it's clear that although we know that at the core of it DevOps is about making better software faster and more safely, there is a lot of differing opinion about its definition, partly because its breadth is huge (organisational disciplines, streamlined interactions, automation) and also because of the resistance to putting any kind of framework or manifesto around it (because ITIL and Agile have had problems with this and because DevOps is based on experimentation - there is no 'one size fits all').
