How DevOps Ensures Success
In this blog post, we will be looking at key benefits of adopting the framework for DevOps. DevOps in has drastically changed the IT and software industry in a very short span of time with a high release frequency and improved test automation practices. It encourages stronger collaboration between cross-functional teams and streamlines communication to nurture employee productivity. Continuous releases of different software versions has enabled a more experimental approach and a more rapid collection of feedback.
Let’s look at some key advantages of adoption:
- Reliable source of delivery
DevOps is widely known as one of the best sources to be used in terms of reliability and in-time delivery of the product. It really helps to maximize work efficiency by dividing it into smaller chunks and then integrating them together.
- Increased Customer Satisfaction
The rapid release of software versions in DevOps enables users to push products to market quickly and to bring out the best product fit for target markets. This in turn helps to grow your loyal customers by offering an ability to compare new product features and capabilities against others.
- Increased efficiency in operations
DevOps not only speeds up the product delivery process but also efficiently identifies and eliminates wasteful processes, eliminating long and unnecessary wait times across different work patches. This feature expedites the flow of value throughout the delivery system and helps control costs of products and overall organization.
Frank Yue (Director Application Delivery Solutions at Radware) says, “DevOps is a process model that provides an agile and a continuous delivery framework for application development in a collaborative and operational manner.
- Remove Bottlenecks
DevOps ensures better and improved levels of collaboration to help employees to understand the whole process in detail and to better identify areas of improvement. Similarly, a professional can also increase working strategies of product through an increased level of process visibility. The secret to the success of DevOps is to identify what the bottlenecks are and to put steps in place to remove them.
- Increased Employee Satisfaction
DevOps makes processes more team-oriented and collaborative, and gives a sense of shared achievement to the whole team of accomplishing something together.
In return, this approach helps increase employee satisfaction over work delivery because they can now clearly see how their role in the entire scenario. This in turn shifts attitudes and behaviors across teams and departments because they start learning to rely on each other.
Experts across the globe now accept that DevOps brings IT together and this shift in culture would spread outside of the department as well. Sven Hammar, CEO of Apica, says that “DevOps is more about people and associated processes than tools, but a good tool will make the process more rewarding for everyone.”
