In today’s environment of rapidly-evolving business demands, agility is essential for staying ahead of the competition. Many organizations initially embraced agile methodology as a software development manifesto, and now it is a secret of their success. Similarly, DevOps helps organizations succeed by emphasizing cross-functional collaboration, customer feedback, and rapid, iterative change over hierarchy and drawn-out processes. In this article at Hackernoon, Clinton Cleetus Fernandes explains how DevOps practices help bring certainty in business operations during these ‘uncertain times.’
How DevOps Make You Strong and Cohesive?
Promotes Collaboration Between Teams
Development teams must break down their interdepartmental silos to collaborate, communicate in a dynamic and round-the-clock environment. DevOps helps improve business agility by providing a much-needed atmosphere for communication, integration across globally-distributed teams, and mutual collaboration in an IT organization.
Detects Risk at Initial Stages
DevOps fosters a culture of knowledge sharing across the team while helping them share their feedback and detect the risk at its early stage. The automated, continuous monitoring, and testing of code help improve the overall quality of the product.
Provides Great Customer Experience
Automating the delivery pipeline makes it possible to ensure an application’s reliability and stability after every new release. When the applications perform flawlessly in production, businesses will undoubtedly reap the benefit of greater customer satisfaction.
Fosters Innovative Mindset
By relaxing the deployment processes, DevOps streamlines processes, and ensures quality builds. This will provide the teams with immense scope for bringing an innovative approach to managing risks and resolving issues.
Helps in Documentation
Whether individuals on your team handle their documentation or you have a technical writer or both, DevOps ensures that you document the work as it progresses. “As the pandemic has made it too clear, you never know when someone on the team will suddenly not be available for work. If you haven’t been documenting their work, you might spend hours just trying to figure out what’s going on,” explains Clinton.
