DevOps is a union of development and operations processes. It enables continuous integration and continuous delivery and adds value to our end users. DevOps accelerates the delivery process. It helps organizations to learn and Adopt the market needs. Quick delivery minimizes the risk factor by getting end-users feedback at the early stages.
DevOps model breaks the isolation between operations and development teams. Both teams are no longer separate, but they are merged and work as a single unit during the project development lifecycle to release and feedback process.
Starting from design and development to testing automation and from continuous integration to continuous delivery, the team works together to achieve the desired goal. People having both development and operations skill sets work together and uses various tools for CI/CD and Monitoring to get feedback at early stages from end user.
Following methodology, you can quickly make development and delivery changes for customer’s needs, adapt to markets, and grow efficiently to grow your business.
The DevOps model helps to reach the desired level to developers and operations teams. For example, continuous feedback and continuous delivery model let teams take the ownership and release updates quickly.
Speed up the release processes considering the automated tests, CD/CI and configurations from build to deploy. This increases the frequency and pace of production releases to improve faster. The quicker you can release new features and fix bugs, the faster you can respond to your customers’ needs and build competitive advantage.
Using tools for automatic testing, writing unit tests increase the code coverage and keeping practice to test at each stage is functional and safe. Monitoring practices help you stay informed of performance in real-time. This improves the quality of application, its infrastructure upgrades and release process. It helps you keep pace and maintain a positive experience for end users.
Automation and consistency help you manage efficiently at very low risk. Operate and manage your infrastructure and development processes at scale.
Improved Collaboration and Security
Build more effective teams under a DevOps cultural model. This reduces inefficiencies and saves time (e.g. reduced handover periods between developers and operations, writing code that takes into account the environment in which it is run). You can adopt a DevOps model without sacrificing security by using automated compliance policies. Developers and operations teams collaborate closely, share many responsibilities, and combine their workflows.
But what are the DevOps practices you need to follow?
