The Many Benefits of DevOps

When the development and operations teams including the developers, system admins, system engineers, security, and operations, work jointly during the SDLC to manage the systems, operations and apps post-releases it is termed as DevOps.

Agile or lean development involves design and development process and elimination of wastes, of which DevOps is an extension.DevOps deals with restructuring the SDLC and finding out ways by which operations would fit into the processes through updating and adoption of newer techniques that enable greater collaboration, enhanced security, stable releases, etc.

DevOps are responsible for agile practices which comprise automation of builds and test, continuous integration and continuous delivery. Besides this, it is also responsible for cloud computing, programmable code, configuration management, etc.All these activities build smaller teams consisting of development and operations to ensure better functionality and speed while delivering the apps.

Origin of DevOps:

There has been a transformation of the application economy to service economy which calls for looking after the customers’ feedback and meeting their expectations by sorting out their issues and supplementing functionalities. This is quickly accomplished by DevOps through their small and proficient teams. They try to maintain a balance betweenthe stability and new features.

Needs for DevOps:

1. Better collaboration between teams:

This is further enhanced when combined with proper tools to carry out the tasks.

2. Elimination of human error and time for innovation:

This is possible due to automation which includes compiling the code, quality and security testing, and deployment in advanced organizations, in DevOps practices like continuous integration and continuous delivery. Automation supports the improvement of SDLC through innovation. It saves time and reduces error in the workflows.

3. Alleviating security flaws efficiently:

DevOps have a better grip on the application security by which they are able to fix issues quickly. They ensure tight security throughout the SDLC. Since this responsibility is distributed among the team members, they are able to handle it in a better way by shifting from proactive to reactive.

4. Competitive edge:

Speed and innovation of the DevOps provide a competitive edge to an organization. Their high-performance and collaborative effortshelp an organization to outperform the one with no DevOps.

5. Customer loyalty:

This is possible as the DevOps quickly fix customer issues after getting their feedback in real-time basis and adding features as per their requirements.

In short, DevOps provide organizational, financial, and cultural benefits, so an enterprise needs them.
