To maintain a sustainable advantage in the web-scale, the organizations should reset their IT practices as innovative and faster. The adoption of DevOps (an amalgamation of development and operations) is driven from the need to make an organization agile and make it able to deliver applications and IT resources more quickly. DevOps enables better collaboration and improves operational efficiency, speeds innovation, and accelerates “concept-to-revenue” for new services.
Following are some of the DevOps practices an organization needs to be successful:
Deployment patterns: DevOps enables organizations to use pre-defined deployment routines, processes, systems, and tools to build applications or end-to-end services. High performing organizations always reuse deployment patterns for building applications and services.
Testing patterns: It is difficult to run all the designed test cases each time manually. Organizations are able to use repeatable testing patterns with the help of DevOps. A single line of code is updated in version control tool where automated testing pipeline come into the picture in DevOps.
In configuring monitor and alert processes: Top performing organizations define their own monitoring and alerting criteria when running applications and services in production. DevOps enables organizations the power to define, manage, and share their own measurement. Also, enables the ability to share metrics to promote continuous improvement, to create a culture of continuous learning and to improve cross-team collaboration.
Improvement to tooling: Manually it is difficult to improve tooling. DevOps practitioners are able to contribute improvements to tooling provided by other teams with high performance.
Configuration management tool: Manually it is critical to provision environments, deploy applications, and maintain infrastructures. DevOps is capable to manage configuration management tools. Using the configuration management tool is considered as a baseline for DevOps. Automated configuration management allows developer and testing teams to create products more rapidly.
DevOps software offers choices, openness, and empowerment with an approach of development and combines pragmatism with strategic thinking. DevOps enables organizations to integrate product development, IT, and operations to create and interconnected ecosystem.
