The Ultimate Guide to DevOps
DevOps is an amalgamation of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that expand an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity. This further improves products faster compared to traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. This accelerates the rate at which an organization serves its customers and can compete more effectively in the market.
How DevOps Works
DevOps model aims at breaking the silos in which development and operations teams work. Sometimes, these two teams even collaborate as a single team, where an engineer works across the entire application lifecycle, from development to testing, deployment to operations, and helps in developing skills not limited to a single function.
In some DevOps models, quality assurance and security teams also tie-ups with development and operations, throughout the application lifecycle. When security is a major focus, this is model is also referred to as DevSecOps.
The teams automate the processes that traditionally have been manual and slow by using technology stack and tools which develops applications quickly and reliably. These tools also help the individual team to independently accomplish tasks such as deploying code or provisioning infrastructure which that further improves the team’s velocity.
Why implement DevOps?
Faster time to market
With DevOps, you can innovate your products at a faster rate, adapt to changes in a better way, and can efficiently drive business results. The DevOps model enables the development and operations teams to achieve more efficiency. For example, microservices and continuous delivery inculcate ownership of services, hence, results in the quicker release of updates.
Increased frequency and pace of software release results in an innovative and improved product. The quick release of new features and bugs fixing builds a competitive advantage as you respond to your customers’ needs at a faster rate. This continuous integration and delivery automate the software release process, from build to deploy.
The glitch-free updates and infrastructure change ensures reliable delivery at a rapid pace while creating a positive experience for end users. The continuous integration and continuous delivery tests that each change is functional and safe. Monitoring and logging practices help your team to stay informed of performance in real-time.
Improve scalability of your infrastructure and development processes through automation and consistency. Further, manage complex or changing systems efficiently and with low risk. For example, infrastructure as code helps in managing a developing, testing, and production environments in a more efficient manner.
Break the silos and build more effective teams under a DevOps cultural model which inculcates values such as ownership and accountability. Developers and operations teams collaborate to combine their workflows. This brings efficiency and saves time with reduced handover periods between developers and operations teams.
Move faster while preserving control and compliance, without sacrificing security by using automated compliance policies and fine-grained controls. By using infrastructure as code and policy as code, you can define and track compliance at scale.

Transitioning to DevOps means a change in culture and mindset, as DevOps is about removing the silos between development and operations team. With DevOps, both the team work together to optimize both productivity and reliability. This results in frequent communicate, increased efficiency, and improved quality of services provided to customers. Organizations using a DevOps model, have teams that take complete ownership of the entire development and infrastructure lifecycle.
