Welcome to EZtek’s Blog!

Today, we’re talking about DevOps. In this article, we’re going to dive into DevOps: What it’s about, How it works and share our experience with DevOps at EZtek.

On our channel, we share thoughts on recent developments in the tech industry, so follow us not to miss new articles.

What is DevOps?

Patrick Dubois – one of the industry’s gurus, birthed the introduction to DevOps in 2009. The phrase DevOps was coined by combining the words Development and Operations. DevOps explained simply is a set of cultural concepts, practices and technologies that improve an organization’s capacity to produce high velocity applications and services, allowing it to evolve and improve products faster than traditional software development and infrastructure management methods.

The DevOps methodology brings together everyone involved in software development and deployment into a single, highly automated workflow with a single goal to deploy high quality software quickly at the same time maintaining the integrity and security of the system.

DevOps Benefits

Speed

DevOps enables you to move at a high rate, allowing you to innovate for consumers more quickly, better adapt to changing markets and become more efficient at generating business results.

Rapid Delivery

From our experience with DevOps, you can increase the number of releases.

Security

Without sacrificing security, you may adopt a DevOps paradigm using automated compliance standards, fine-grained controls and configuration management approaches.

From our experience, people often get confused about the difference between Agile and DevOps. So we break it down in our post on Agile vs DevOps.

DevOps Challenges

Addressing resistance to change

We at EZtek recommend using a variety of interaction tactics. Communication and staying informed about DevOps activities are vital components of these engagement strategies.

Creating cross-team collaboration

Teams in charge of development and IT operations must learn to work together and also, take into account the separation and adoption of tools set for Dev and Ops teams. Even if you have all the tools, we advise you to instruct your employees on using them correctly.

How DevOps works?

Other than establishing a DevOps culture, the teams bring DevOps to life by following particular practices through the application life cycle. These include:

Collaboration

Understanding DevOps methods and concerns must be shared priorities among different teams, such as development and IT operations.

Automation

Continuous Integration

Continuous Integration is a software development process in which developers regularly merge their code changes into a central repository, followed by automated builds and testing.

Continuous Testing

The test function aids developers in balancing quality and speed in a DevOps environment.

Continuous Delivery

Continuous Delivery – a software development method in which code updates are created, tested and ready for production release automatically.

Continuous Monitoring

Organizations keep track of metrics and logs to see how application and infrastructure performance affects the end user experience.
