DEVOPS – MORE THAN A BUZZWORD?

DevOps is driving the digital transformation and promises with its modern tools and methods new standards for the whole software life cycle. But how important is DevOps? And what’s it all about?

DevOps

DEVOPS IN A NUTSHELL

As an umbrella term for a collection of paradigms, tools and processes, DevOps does have one main goal: to adjust your IT landscape to the agile development and delivery of sophisticated software-based products.

DevOps refutes the traditional opinion that your IT department is only a collection of functional silos (Dev, QA, Ops, Security etc.). DevOps proofs that all teams of an IT department can collaborate, which results in a consistent system which is able to master the challenges of an agile and reliable IT. Therefore, DevOps provides the technical and organizational framework for the whole software lifecycle.

Weaknesses of classical development methods

  • Time-to-Market and cycle times are too long
  • Difficult or expensive norms
  • Often self-inflicted environmental or service problems
  • Frequent delays or project downtimes
  • A lot of your budget is spent on maintenance of existing systems instead on their improvement
  • Opportunities are missed through inflexibility
DevOps Mindset

THE DEVOPS MINDSET

  • Breaking the silos: “Dev” and “Ops” become DevOps. This leads to new collaborations between different departments. This causes new synergies that will show new ways for business and IT.
  • Removing bottlenecks, which are caused by technical deficits, as well as manual and expensive processes
  • Eliminating inefficiencies: software shouldn’t be the bottleneck of your business, but its accelerator. You can only reach this goal by eliminating waste or technical deficits, and be avoided by design.
  • Accelerating the speed of the whole SLC
  • Improving software quality through quality gates and automatic tests
  • Ideas that are generated through a software lifecycle in a customer-oriented environment, can be implemented more reliable and faster.
  • Less failures
  • Decision makers can implement new ideas easier and faster
  • The organization can focus on growth and not ongoing operations.

DEVOPS AS AN HOLISTIC APPROACH

Because DevOps is all about improving the performance of the whole IT landscape and its relating business processes, a multistage approach is necessary. Isolated attempts or local fixes can have negative impacts on the overall performance of your IT organization. DevOps takes a look on problems and possible solutions from three different angles:

People, processes and tools.

Devops Processes - Tools - People

ARE YOU READY FOR THE CHANGE?

Before you adapt DevOps, we recommend to make a pre-analysis to deal with key factors and the following questions:

  • Do you have the right people at the right place and do you have the knowledge and tools for a successful business?
  • Do you have the right processes to make it possible for your employees to reach their goals?
  • Do you have the right automation strategy and the right tools to formalize your processes and speed up your success?

Having the goal in mind to adapt DevOps to your organization’s needs, we work with you to find answers and solutions for those questions.
