Paddy Power Betfair puts entire IT team on call to improve software quality


"Paddy Power Betfair has put its entire IT team on call in an effort to improve the quality of its software releases.

A recent IT overhaul at the firm involved a move into hybrid cloud, a shift to DevOps working practices and the decision to improve accountability by putting all technology staff on call.

Stephen Lowe, director of technology at Paddy Power Betfair, explained that the development and operations team were brought together and given the skills to understand and perform one another's roles. However, the transition hasn't been completely seamless.

‘The staff are all trained, and now the developers all have ops skills, so they're now much more independent,’ said Lowe, speaking at Computing's recent Cloud and Infrastructure Summit. ‘But ops still think their job is to keep the lights on. And the developers say if we're now doing all this infrastructure work, we're responsible for it.’”
