What is DevOps?
For far too long, the software development life-cycle has been cliched – the development and operations teams have been working in siloes and independent of each other. While this practice is traditional, the side affects have been far too many – from miscommunication, misunderstanding to product development delays leading to operational inefficiencies. Even quality took a beating because of the siloed approach to product development.
DevOps is a game changer as far software development and delivery process is concerned.
It is a practice entrusted to ensure that the development and operations teams no longer function in siloes. DevOps brings about the collaboration, and more importantly, the cohesiveness of the development and operations teams. This has been a great push for the software product development life-cycle –
First things first, DevOps is a culture and hence it brings about a greater level of coordination and collaboration between the Development and Operations Teams. Two teams behave and function as one towards achieving the objective of creating quality products with a quicker release time.
DevOps brings people, technology and process together in a bid streamline and automate the entire product development lifecycle with an objective of providing value to customers.
It just about reduces a lot of hassles and hurdles that come with creating software applications from – development, testing and deployment to release. DevOps practice also ensures that the margin of error and inefficiencies of software development lifecycle are reduced.
Benefits of Devops
- Better collaboration between development and operations teams
- Reduces human errors, increases efficiencies
- Early identification of errors and issues leads to reduction of defects in development life cycle
- Faster time to recovery and quicker deployment
- Automate testing and production releases
- Resolves operational hiccups and anomalies to bring in smoother operations
DevOps the Emuser way
We are a client-first company.
We do not directly recommend a solution or come up with an implementation route map.
Rather, we begin with understanding the IT development needs, assess the current situation and validate the pros and cons before we come up with a route map to adopting DevOps practice. DevOps is also about the culture; we brief client organizations on the essentials of bringing in a new culture and brief them on its influence. We then hand-hold you into the process and educate your team into adopting and sustaining DevOps as IT practice and also as a culture.
