DevOps isn’t a new concept, but as organizations realize the need for more frequent and efficient releases, there has never been a better time to start your digital transformation journey. At the core of DevOps is a shift to continuous deployment and delivery, which results in faster time to market. The benefits are numerous, but how do you get there? The answer lies with building a DevOps roadmap that will help guide you to a full DevOps experience.
When implementing a DevOps culture, a focus on tools is destined to fail. Why? Because of the DevOps Equation. The DevOps Equation tells us that DevOps Success = Quality x Acceptance. Therefore, you could have a perfectly designed solution, but if it isn’t accepted by all of the stakeholders, then it is not going to be of much value to the organization, and it will eventually fail.
Like other components of IT, many managed technical professional service providers are now offering DevOps as a managed service. DevOps as a Service moves the traditional collaboration of DevOps to the cloud where many processes are automated using stackable virtual development tools.
Containers are taking the IT world by storm. According to industry-leader, Docker, over 3.5 million applications have been placed in containers using Docker technology and over 37 billion containerized applications have been downloaded. If you haven’t yet adopted containers as part of your strategy, you may be asking, why you should use containers at your organization?
A major player in successfully responding to this shift to software within the manufacturing space is DevOps. DevOps in manufacturing drives business agility and continuous delivery to not only satisfy customer needs, but also increases efficiency and business performance.
