DEVOPS VALUE PROPOSITION
- Innovate faster through automating and streamlining the software development and infrastructure management processes
- Very frequent but small updates, lesser risk and faster go to market
- Quick reaction and mitigation of issues on production systems with the use of monitoring and logging of every aspect of the application
- Fosters microservices based architectures
- Increased ownership and accountability across Dev and Ops teams due to shared responsibilities and workflows
- Increased security compliance by using infrastructure as code and policy as code
Keep customer expected outcomes in centre for devising a DevOps Strategy. Every organisation has its own unique people and technology processes. DevOps strategy should be made with customer first approach.
A Cross-Functional Team
Organisational restructure becomes important for some customers due to the inherited siloed people structures. For DevOps to thrive, Development and Operations team need to come to same page on a shared responsibility model.
Source control and collaboration
Team collaboration is of utmost importance since DevOps is all about small but frequent releases. This requires very frequent collaboration between multiple teams. Hence, traditional communication tools need to be replaced with new age Agile tools.
Infrastructure As Code
IaC is meant to significantly simplify large-scale configuration and management. it enables automation for provisioning and environment changes which can improve productivity and reliability because it eliminates manual configuration steps.
CI/CD pipeline helps to automate steps in software delivery process, such as initiating code builds, running automated tests, and deploying to a staging or production environment. Automated pipelines remove manual errors, provide standardized development feedback loops and enable fast product iterations.
DevOps doesn't thrive on its own, since its not a technology piece alone. It is driven by people and processes, hence enabling the customer with necessary training and knowledge for keeping the DevOps culture evolving becomes very important.
