DevOps known as development and operations, it is the combination of cultural, practices, and tools that improve an organizations ability to deliver services at high speed improving and evolving product at a faster rate than the traditional software development and infrastructure management procedure. The DevOps movement started to coalesce sometime between 2007 and 2008, when IT operations and software development communities got vocal about what they felt was a fatal level of dysfunction in the industry.
The concept of DevOps is founded on building a culture of collaboration between teams that historically functioned in relative siloes. The promised benefits include increased trust, faster software releases, ability to solve critical issues quickly, and better manage unplanned work. A DevOps mindset sees opportunities for continuous improvement everywhere.
BENEFIT OF DEVOPS
Release faster and work smarter
Speed is everything. Teams that practice DevOps release more frequently, with higher quality and stability. Lack of automated test and review cycles block the release to production and poor incident response time kills velocity and team confidence. Through automation and standardized tools and processes, teams can increase productivity and release more frequently with fewer hiccups.
Accelerate time to resolution
The team with the fastest feedback loop is the team that thrives. Full transparency and seamless communication enable DevOps teams to minimize downtime and resolve issues faster than ever before. If critical issues aren’t resolved quickly, customer satisfaction tanks. Key issues slip through the cracks in the absence of open communication, resulting in increased tension and frustration among teams. Open communication helps Dev and Ops teams swarm on issues, fix incidents, and unblock the release pipeline faster.
Better manage unplanned work
Unplanned work is a reality that every team faces–a reality that most often impacts team productivity. With established processes and clear prioritization, the Dev and Ops teams can better manage unplanned work while continuing to focus on planned work.
