What Is DevOps?
DevOps is a set of practices meant to align the goals of software development and operations teams. It’s admittedly a somewhat nebulous term that’s been used to describe a number of different practices, and different companies may have different philosophies.
However, all DevOps practices incorporate some form of continuous delivery—in other words, software delivery is streamlined and automated so that it can occur without interruption. DevOps also incorporates agile software development, allowing you to build and adapt new tools on the fly, and encourages collaboration between teams that might otherwise function independently.
The Benefits of DevOps
DevOps offers several advantages, including:
Faster time to market
Faster software development lifecycle means you’ll benefit from continuous delivery and a faster time to market. That means you’ll collect user data and feedback sooner, and you’ll establish a stream of revenue sooner.
Better communication and collaboration
With an appropriate DevOps model in place, your team will master the arts of collaboration and communication. You’ll be able to communicate ideas more clearly, and implement them more efficiently, ultimately resulting in less strain and more efficiency.
Improved software quality
Implementing a DevOps culture also tends to produce better-finished products. Your operations teams will become more efficient in the way they manage infrastructure, how to implement configuration management, adapt to new information and communicate clearly between security teams and other stakeholders. With all the right DevOps tools to help with rapid deployment at a higher quality, you can expect DevOps success with each software project.
Efficient software development
Thanks to agile development processes, your entire development team will better introduce automation, and a variety of tools meant to streamline software development, your IT team will work more efficiently—and you’ll save money in the process.
