Day 2 Operations - Are you ready?

18 December,2018 by Tom Collins

Question: I was in a meeting yesterday and heard a new term - "Day 2 Operations". In the context of the conversation Iit made sense, but I'd never heard it. Is this a formal concept? What are the specifics?


Answer: In general terms - Day 2 operations  refers to features of a product or platform which are in an operational state.    Thinking about Day 2 operations as part of a lifecycle - we'd be discussing product usage in the advanced stages of the lifecycle,
