DevOps Consulting – Accelerate the Development Process

Why DevOps?

Businesses are under intense pressure to quickly deliver new services and adapt to existing ones, and manage this all without disrupting current applications. In order to make this a reality, a new way of working emerged within the product development creation chain. The existing methodologies, that were structured and rigid, gave way to agile movement and reshaped the way development teams worked with the product teams. This is now know as DevOps.

Streamlining the flow of product development is the central idea of DevOps. During the entire product lifecycle teams work together and communicate nonstop. Whether it’s designing, product building, testing, deploying or operating, every stage is worked on collaboratively to ensure everyone is on the same page. The flow isn’t about checkpoints, but about building a culture of cooperation between development and operations.

Although this may sound intuitive, it’s not industry standard and the transformation isn’t easy. Development and operations/product teams are notorious for butting heads due to an ingrained way of doing things. The complexity of developing  a new approach to application creation can cause delays, damage your bottom line, and disrupt your business. This can be mitigated by understanding what needs to change and the right steps to take when it comes to incorporating DevOps.
