What is DevOps?

DevOps is a process and culture that removes the traditional barriers between your development team (Dev) and IT operations (Ops). A DevOps process fosters collaboration and shared responsibility. With more frequent releases, your DevOps team can deliver value quicker and with greater confidence.

The eight-step DevOps process

These eight areas form the core of the DevOps process.

1. Planning

Define:

  • Process
  • Technology
  • Tools
  • Culture

2. Coding

  • Define tests
  • Write code

3. Building

  • Configuration management        
  • Platform / PaaS setup

4. Testing

Test against the tests defined at coding stage

5. Release

Code passes tests and is ready for release

6. Deployment

  • Hosting / IaaS setup
  • Code is deployed to live environment

7. Operating

Hosting optimisation

8. Monitoring

  • Performance monitoring
  • Troubleshooting
  • Sharing insights

With a DevOps software development process, each step informs the next, in a continuous cycle of planning, implementation and operation.

The benefits of DevOps

DevOps delivers huge value over time. It’s a vital part of your digital transformation. DevOps breaks down the siloes between operations and development teams and puts you in control of your development cycle.

With DevOps, you can streamline tasks, spot problems early and it’s easy to roll back changes if you need to. Code gets into production faster, which means your customers get value faster too.

Automated DevOps solutions

The real benefits of DevOps emerge when you apply DevOps automation tools. Reduce toil, boost productivity and reduce the risks of human error by automating common tasks.

Succeed with DevOps

Process and tools are crucial for your DevOps implementation. But to guarantee its success, you need two more things: the right culture and the best expert advice.

culture

DevOps culture

The shift to DevOps is cultural as well as technical. DevOps practices are built on Agile philosophy and lean thinking. That culture needs to be embraced by your whole team.

Ultimately, DevOps aims to deliver value swiftly and frequently to customers. That’s why we centre the process on your users so your whole team can focus on their needs. Download our free DevOps white paper to find out how.
