Think of DevOps as a movement between development and operations. The union of people, their processes, and their technology within a company enhance the value they provide within their teams. DevOps allows divisions that were formerly siloed to have differing goals and objectives, including development, operations, engineering, and more, to coordinate with one another to merge their goals and objectives to produce higher customer value.
Companies that utilize DevOps can rapidly respond to their customer base, increase confidence in the tech they build, achieve their business goals, and service their clients with velocity. Companies that choose DevOps as a culture commit to breaking down those silos to optimize their clients' satisfaction.
DevOps began to gain momentum in 2007 and 2008 when IT and software communities felt that the traditional software model required a revolution. Originally, software development had code developers organizationally and functionally apart from IT. This caused significant head-butting when it came to separate objectives and performance indicators. The siloed work led to problems, such as botched releases, long hours, and constant readjustments.
Enter the solution of merging IT and software development into one entity, so the objectives, indicators, and leadership were shared. Gone were the silos that hampered previous projects, and instead, unison was introduced, and from it, agile methodologies, continuous integration came to fruition. Every team benefited, and most importantly, it optimized the most important asset a company could have their customers' satisfaction.
This is a key in the DevOps process. Rather than improving your software all at once, the updates are made by the team continuously, which streamlines your process and delivers the software to the customer as soon as it has been tested.
This is at every stage of the development cycle. The ultimate goal here is to evaluate the quality of the software by testing it early and frequently.
This is a practice where all developers merge code changes into one storage space. At this point, builds can be automated, and tests can be run.
Continuous deployment is a process for important operations activities. This is focused on implementing solutions to production environments, verifying that they do work, and monitoring and supporting their post-release.
This monitoring process is the constant checks and balances across each phase of your DevOps and IT operations. This benefits your application’s health, performance and reliability.
