DevOps – a combination of Development and Operations – is more than just a workflow; it’s a way of life. With collaboration at the center, it aims to break down the barriers and conflicting priorities that often exist between teams. Now, many large organizations are getting on board with DevOps – turning technology into a strategic advantage and promoting a continuous learning environment.
DevOps is a concept that is founded on building a culture of collaboration between teams that historically functioned in relative siloes. Gartner even predicted that “50 percent of global enterprises will be taking an architectural approach to web-scale IT by 2017.” Per this prediction, businesses are continuing to digitize, move IT infrastructure to the cloud, and invest in mobile and IoT devices.
DevOps over ‘NoOps’
It’s time to shed the “us” versus “them” mentality across teams. It is more important than ever for enterprises to understand the changing landscape and adapt quickly. DevOps provides more continuous feedback from production back to development, design, and product management.
Nowadays, nobody wants to wait, especially your clients. By implementing an agile methodology, teams can deliver faster turnaround times and meet their deadlines with ease.
Here are a few more benefits of implementing a DevOps-first approach:
- Faster resolution of problems
- Reduction of manual work
- Feedback loops measure effectiveness
- Enhanced security
- Happier, more productive teams
DevOps is a cultural change in an organization – but one that won’t be regretted.
