DevOps Solutions & Consulting Services
In the world of Agile Software development, “Continuous Integration” and “Continuous Delivery” have been creating several challenges for Developers and Operations since the very beginning. The list of challenges is huge; however, let’s have a look on one of challenge faced in Continuous Delivery.
Once a sprint is finished, product artefacts are handed over to separate team (Operations) for the deployment of the same on the other environment under release pipeline like UAT, Staging, and Production etc. Different configurations of these environments could lead to a situation where shipped product may not work on a specific environment. There could be ‘n’ number of reasons for the same.
Other than these sorts of challenges, there are possibilities of having lower quality product in delivery cycle along with a lot of redundant work.
At first glance, it seems that applying automation will be helpful, but it is actually not enough. We have to break the “wall of confusion” between developers and operation team.
So, DevOps is only the ultimate solution here.
What is DevOps?
DevOps is creating worldwide buzz for last two years. As a term, first time it was used in Agile conference in 2008 during a discussion between Andrew Clay Shafer and Patrick Debois on Agile Infrastructure.
It’s a combination of two words i.e. Developers and Operations. DevOps has been developed to create such a culture / approach which may foster collaboration and Integration between Development & Operation teams.
The core idea behind this innovation is to integrate communication, collaboration and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals for faster development and deployment.
