One DevOps anti-pattern is to reduce the silo-based isolation of development and operations with a
new DevOps team that silos itself from other parts of the organization.
The first DevOps anti-pattern mentioned leads to the second one, which is failing to include all aspects
of the organization in an ongoing DevOps transition. Organizations embarking upon a DevOps
transition should have some type of DevOps center of excellence that makes sure all tiers of the
organization -- from IT executives to project managers to members of the security and hardware
provisioning teams -- embrace and employ DevOps practices.
Another common anti-pattern is not defining KPIs at the start of a DevOps transition. Without
identifying important DevOps KPIs and creating a baseline at the start of the journey, it is impossible to
evaluate success and identify failures.
