What is DevOps?
DevOps, also known as “development and operations,” is a philosophy that aims to merge development, quality assurance, and operations into a single, continuous set of processes. It seeks to eliminate the clunkiness and reduce the friction we see in the hand-offs between development and operations by automating infrastructure, automating workflows, and continuously measuring application performance. Not only does it increase speed without sacrificing quality, but it also aids in communication and mitigates the risk of software errors.
Build a DevOps Culture Within Your Organization
Implementing a DevOps culture requires a complete overhaul in your company’s organizational practices. With the right combination of cultural philosophies, methods, and tools, you can increase an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at a rapid pace. By uniting continuous delivery and automation, your team will work more efficiently and deliver high value to customers. Additional benefits of DevOps include:
- Faster time to market
- More focus on improving the business
- Removes development constraints
- Increased productivity
- Collaboration and trust
- Better manage unplanned work
- Release faster and work smarter
The CALMS Framework for DevOps
To assess your team’s readiness for a DevOps process, we use the CALMS model. The five pillars of the CALMS framework for DevOps are:
Culture (or Collaboration)
DevOps integrates developers and operations teams to improve collaboration and productivity
Automation eliminates repetitive manual work, yields repeatable processes, and creates reliable systems.
By eliminating low-value activities, we can easily move products and services along quicker.
We provide visibility into all systems by implementing useful metrics that can be monitoring and measured in real time
Sharing responsibility and success will help bridge the gap between development and operations teams.
