The key objective of DevOps is to achieve frequent and reliable delivery of software applications through the automation of deployment pipeline. Automation tools are usually open source and enable core DevOps practices, such as code versioning, testing automation, continuous integration, and configuration management. By and large DevOps tools serve following goals
- Collaboration across cross-functional teams
- Enabling continuous delivery, and
- Continuously maintaining software reliability
Developers and operators share these tools for deployment. The main risk that lies in the adoption of these tools is the absence of clarity of responsibilities between Developers and operators , which may cause friction.
Organizations should realize that DevOps is not a silver bullet; it is a mindset at its core. Thus, it becomes a “continuous” journey of radical and incremental improvements with feedback loops in accelerating software release processes. Automating is one of the ways to kill the manual practices in software releases towards accomplishing a unified goal. DevOps helps your organization become more agile by considerably improving productivity of your IT team as the connecting cord is automated and transparent to everyone.
