Summary

Susan Jones had been the CEO of Investments Unlimited, Inc. (IUI) for five years, a financial institution that has successfully navigated their digital transformation. She is quick on her feet and is trusted by the board. But right now—although you can't tell from her demeanor—she was panicking. 

Today, IUI received notice from bank regulators concerning their unsatisfactory audit and compliance practices. If they failed to address the regulators' concerns within the year, the company could go up in smoke. 

She didn't understand. How had her team let this happen? How had she let this happen? 

Over the past several years, IUI had executed a digital transformation strategy following the business accelerating principles of Agile and DevOps. By any metric they had seemingly done things right. Feedback from customers was astounding and conversion rates for new accounts was growing faster than ever. But along the way IUIs manual governance process had become inundated with friction, frustration, and failure for the teams attempting to deliver value for their organizations. 

Now, it's all hands on deck for a cross-functional team of executives and engineers to develop a modern automated governance process that satisfies regulators without slowing the company's ability to meet customer demands and compete in the market.

In the vein of bestselling titles The Phoenix Project and The Unicorn Project, Investments Unlimited helps organizations radically rethink how they handle audit, compliance, and security for their software systems. By introducing concepts, tools, and ideas to reimagine governance, this book catalyzes a more humane way to enable high-velocity software delivery that inspires trust and is inherently more secure.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Great story about applying security and governance to level up DevOps

This is a must read after tackling the famous Phoenix Project and Unicorn Project books. Told in a similar story-telling manner to engage the audience but assumes the DevOps journey has already been embarked on, and focus on security, compliance and governance is needed. Does a great job resonating with the most technical person as well as the executive level.

3rd Jewel in a Triple Crown

Listened on Audible. PA to TN.
A terrific wrap up to the relatable Phoenix and Unicorn Project.

If they only taught this in Executive Leadership school.

Good content, average delivery

After listening to other DevOps novels, this one doesn’t have the same story or quality. The DevOps content is spot on, top notch, however, the performance of the reader is very average. The voices of different characters are too similar and makes it hard to keep up with what is going on.

On top of that, the “story” is almost nonexistent. It’s opens with a father/daughter discussion about missing a softball game… then sorta faded into the background. It’s more a story of developing a process… no extra “real life” stuff going on.

Great book, Unique perspective

Awesome book! I really enjoyed the perspective presented around security and compliance being features within the DevOps ecosystem. Definitely worth a listen for those on the DevOps journey.

Extending DevOps beyond development and operations

Another great novel by ITRevolution about explaining DevOps in non-technical concepts solving business critical challenges.

A must read for anyone who is working in a business, from C-suite executives to the workforce below.
