Improve the entire development lifecycle
DevOps is the combination of culture, practice, and various tools that enables organizations to deliver applications and services in a short period of time. With this approach, software can be built, tested and released faster and more reliably. As a result, companies gain velocity and are better able to respond to customer needs and compete in the market. The DevOps process resembles an infinite loop that moves repeatedly through the phases of software planning, code, build, test, release, deployment, operations, ongoing monitoring and feedback.
Why we use DevOps
With shorter development cycles and tightened processes, teams are more productive and software is deployed faster.
Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery ensure that every change is functional and secure. Monitoring and logging help keep you informed of performance in real time.
Developers and operations teams work closely together, sharing many tasks and combining their workflows. This reduces inefficiencies and saves time.
User experience, and therefore user feedback, is important to the DevOps process. By gathering information from customers and acting on it, the DevOps approach ensures that customer wants and needs are addressed, keeping customer satisfaction high.
Automation and continuity help manage complex or rapidly changing systems efficiently. For example, Infrastructure as Code (IaC) allows development, test, and production environments to be managed in a repeatable manner.
Automated compliance policies, fine-grained monitoring, and configuration management techniques help ensure security. For example, using "Infrastructure as Code" and "Policy as Code", compliance can be defined at a large scale and can then be tracked.
