DevOps automation can make software development process innovative and streamlined while helping your business overcome complexities in security, especially if the software is cloud-based. It also frees up time and resources to allow your team to focus on other important business tasks. Adopting DevOps automation is a step towards better scalability for your organisation.
DevOps is defined as a set of software development practices that combines software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops). The objective is to optimise the delivery of a platform, product, or solution!
Similar to a factory’s production line, the software ‘product’ moves along a process that is like a conveyor belt, but this time, different developers are working on it in different stages before it is delivered to the end customer. There is minimal interaction within the process.
How it’s done
To ensure successful DevOps automation, you need to work closely with experienced engineers who are up-to-date with industry best practices and the latest tools. These seasoned DevOps engineers will determine the best tools and practices to apply in your project, such as Jenkins and Bitbucket Terraform.
Make sure they have a customised enterprise DevOps strategy as a service, which involves seamless optimisation. This way, issues such as deploying a test in production environment can be avoided. Every stage in the process must be optimised and capable of seamless operation to attain a cost-effective and efficient DevOps strategy.
DevOps automation includes infrastructure optimisation to make sure that the benefits of the updated tools are applied throughout the process. The tools take written and developed code to be deployed into the infrastructure. This automation process is known as ‘Continuous Deployment’ or ‘Continuous Integration’.
The benefits for your organisation
Successful DevOps automation will enable focus on other critical business tasks. Working with experienced DevOps engineers will ensure optimum results, with reliable and stable operating environments, early detection and quicker correction of defects, and continuous release and deployment.
