DevOps, a combination of “development” and “operations,” is a set of philosophies and processes meant to make it faster and more efficient to develop software. Unfortunately, implementing DevOps is a challenge for many existing businesses.
At DEV.co, we offer DevOps as a service, providing you the tools and a logistical gateway that allows you to achieve your development goals.
What Is DevOps?
DevOps is a set of practices meant to align the goals of software development and IT 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 means you’ll benefit from 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 DevOps 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
DevOps also tends to produce better-finished products. Your teams will be adapting to new information and communicating clearly, with all the right tools to help them do it.
Efficient software development
Thanks to agile development processes, automation, and a variety of tools meant to streamline software development, your team will work more efficiently—and you’ll save money in the process.
DevOps as a Service
DevOps as a service is a business model that provides the tools, processes, and structures necessary to practice DevOps within an organization. When you work with a DevOps provider, you’ll get all the resources and solutions you need to practice DevOps.
Our DevOps Process
When we work with organizations, we follow an adaptive process that usually resembles the following:
We start with an initial analysis. Which tools are you currently using? How do your development and operations teams interact with each other? What are your biggest strengths and weaknesses? What are your goals?
02.Finding a solution
Next, we devise a solution. Depending on your needs, this typically includes a set of tools, resources, processes, and workflows meant to achieve your goals.
Next is execution. We’ll help prepare your team and make sure all moving parts are functioning as intended.
04. Ongoing support
We also provide ongoing support to our clients, ensuring our collaborative plan is working and making changes and improvements as necessary.
DevOps has the power to transform your organization, with faster time to market and more efficient development. Are you ready to embrace it? Contact DEV.co today for a free quote, or a free consultation!
