For anyone in the technology space, the topic of DevOps has become prevalent across virtually all industries as organizations recognize that DevOps delivers value well beyond their IT department. Technology is changing the way we do business, and in the prescient words of Satya Nadella, “every business will become a software business.” So, how can implementing DevOps in your organization bridge that gap and accelerate results?
In today’s day and age, your IT department can make or break your business – quite literally. Markets are continuously disrupted, and companies are forced to reinvent themselves again and again. In the end, successful organizations are those that are profitable, dynamic, and innovative. By incorporating DevOps processes, synergy is cultivated between development and operations teams. By breaking down barriers and eliminating silos of work, quality and speed to market are improved. And this goes beyond the tools and technologies that are used, involving a shift in overall mindset. The result for businesses: it eliminates the need to choose between quality and speed when delivering software to end-users. Beyond that, there are additional quantifiable technical and business benefits to implementing DevOps practices. This includes more adaptive release management, shorter development cycles, increased deployment frequency, and faster time to market – all leading to an increase in customer satisfaction. These practices enhance the ability for teams to deliver a higher-quality product to consumers, while providing the business with the flexibility to continue down a path of constant innovation and improvement.
