This is typical scene and context you will hear before.

User make contact to help desk, yesterday still can access application, but today they encounter problem… due to developers make change and implement new functionality, and helpdesk support are not aware of it. DevOps support is challenging, in particular outsourced scenario.

For uncontrolled DevOps adoption at the rapid speed without consideration of helpdesk and users will happen and disrupt the operation. The promise of adopt DevOps and get business needed functionality at the business speed, using various continuous integration (CI) and continuous development (CD), continuous delivery and continuous deployment. With the strong believe users can aboard small, incremental changes introduced through a DevOps methodology without disruption of the business operation. Those are ideal scene. But we saw lot of large change and implemented in the bad way without coordination. For in-house developer maybe the disruption maybe less compare with outsourced due to accessible of the in-house developers team. But overall, that indicate the problem and issue where developers are not the good communicator and coordinate the smooth transition. A better approach bring in helpdesk and some user in the project line steering community group to make sure all the impact is noted and move in the manner every party can make their own contribution is the key. In the end, it is enterprise change, no just about developer developed application. Application required user to use and helpdesk to support.
For the best way is developer make use of system and tool where can provide user and helpdesk aware of what is going on, automation and integration to push all the needed information into respective group in their format of choice or what they used to. That will help to streamline and minimise the business disruption for the entire enterprise.
