Demystifying the DevOps adoption process: Streamlining software delivery

Is it possible to enable faster DevOps adoption across an organization? Can DevOps maximize system security in the enterprise? Growing market demands for products and intelligent applications that ease processes has changed the IT industry’s pace. Adopting the right DevOps solutions can provide them with a competitive edge in the market and increase enterprise security.

Development teams must have a strong customer focus and closely work with the sales team and solutions architect on customer calls, which allows them to realize the conflicts that decelerate adoption in the real world and innovate the changes in DevOps solutions. The eventual goal of DevOps is to bring development and operations together and end-to-end. Still, many enterprises find it hard to complete the DevOps adoption process to the enterprise level. You need the right strategy to achieve continuous business value through DevOps.

Flexible IT teams overcome software delivery challenges, bring projects at the speed of business, streamline the DevOps experience, and reduce project cycle times. Usually, before project delivery, teams face long lead times, high costs, and policy compliance. DevOps leaders deliver solutions through standardization of principles and practices.

DevOps metrics

DevOps Metrics

To get the most out of DevOps, enterprises must collect regular feedbacks, create benchmarks, and continuously gauge results to track progress. That’s where DevOps metrics get their value.

How DevOps can fasten up software development process?

“To accelerate development and enable continuous delivery of customer value, organizations need to reach the next level in their agile and DevOps practices. Application leaders must focus on value stream management to maximize flow, improve delivery efficiency and drive innovation.”

-Gartner

Enterprises look for options to improvise the software applications’ operationality and delivering features to meet customer demands. They need to transform their existing delivery process, value chain and adopt innovation with modern tools, technology, and strategies to outperform digital-first competitors. To support this, DevOps occupies an important position in offering high-performing applications at speed. Preparing the whole business to embrace DevOps unifies IT, development, and the rest of the company. It initiates a culture that supports these changes and accelerates the development process. IT teams have to engage with other areas of the business proactively. They must strengthen the culture of improved collaboration through cross-functional communication at all levels of the enterprise. In return, the teams will then have a prominent role in building a real agile business.

Automation is the key

DevOps and Automation are two key drivers and help enterprises simplify the development process. The resulting business benefits include maximized cross-department team collaboration and Automation of manual and redundant tasks in the development process. With the adoption of new processes, teams can increase their productivity. Continuous Integration and Delivery help overcome most of the challenges and provide regular feedback with Continuous Testing that enables early and frequent testing. Therefore, Continuous communication plays a significant role in the DevOps Adoption process. To make Automation remain relevant and optimized in your company, your team must have an ideal strategy in place that continuously performs risk assessments, dependencies, limitations, and successes. The creative thinking teams achieve tremendous success, and the creativity can come from all directions.

Business owners need a mindset that allows solutions to come from all places. Developing compliancy into the project pipeline is one of the key drivers that take deployment to the next level of Development and Testing.

Enterprise cloud adoption with DevOps approach

Getting the most out of DevOps for cloud projects requires a great strategy and up-front investment to achieve the targeted goals. However, if you realize the level of commitment needed and give high priority to the DevOps approach in your company, you are on the right track. DevOps automation is becoming more cloud-centric as cloud service providers support DevOps on their platforms. It is more cost-effective when comparing on-premises automation technology. Cloud-based DevOps makes it easier to track development resource costs through user-based accounting.

You cannot expect more benefits when you Adopt the cloud with conventional waterfall-based delivery models. Business agility, flexibility, and cost optimization can be achieved through the DevOps approach, whether it is a cloud migration or modernization, or innovation of new business functionalities. Upgrading to the cloud infrastructure with a DevOps approach gives more flexibility and reduces administrative costs. The uniqueness of DevOps is you build it and run it independently. Further, it unlocks the whole new way of working who are initially responsible for designing their own flexible cloud infrastructure and keeps extreme focus upon their business functionality.
