“You build it, you run it.” Congratulations, you are responsible for creating, and also the care and feeding of your new critical business service. Suddenly your developers are spending more time on tickets and less time on epics. How can your devops teams continue to strive forward with innovation when they continue to get distracted with concerns of “now”?
This is where runbooks and runbook automation can help. Just as your build, test, and delivery are automated, so should your operations. With runbook automation, now you can delegate automated tasks to other teams such as your operations team to assist with common and frequent tasks. These can be lifecycle maintenance, such as backups and cache refreshes, and they can be triage and remediation tasks in the case of incidents.
