Continuous Assessment is an approach that aims to allow DevOps teams to continuously develop in terms of knowledge and skills in the field of business, development, operations and security. This book provides a tool to make the DevOps teams aware where they stand in terms of development and what next steps they can take to develop. This book is a publication in the Continuous Everything series. The content consists of the business case for Continuous Assessment, the architecture of the two assessment models and the assessment questionnaires. The DevOps Cube model is based on the idea that DevOps can be viewed from six different perspectives of a cube, namely: 'Flow', 'Feedback', 'Continuous Learning', 'Governance', 'Pipeline' and 'QA'. The DevOps CE model is based on the Continuous Everything perspectives, namely: 'Continuous Integration', 'Continuous Deployment', 'Continuous Testing', 'Continuous Monitoring', Continuous Documentation' and 'Continuous Learning'. This book is an excellent mirror for any DevOps team that wants to quickly form a complete picture of DevOps best practices to be adopted.
