DEVOPS ENGINEERING AND CONSULTING

Accelerating Software Delivery through DevOps

In the recent years, software delivery has transformed a lot from fragmented approach (development, testing and operations performed by different teams in silos) to a continuous approach (development, testing, operations and maintenance happening in tandem by a closely knit, collaborative team).

DevOps is one of the game changers, making this shift possible by accelerating software delivery and easing the cross-stage transitions that occur throughout the software life cycle. This brings different stakeholders from business, development and operations teams together to streamline software delivery. DevOps is more of a cultural change coupled with automation techniques, helping organizations to automate and ease the process of deployment, environment set-up, configuration, monitoring, and testing. This ultimately saves a huge amount of time, energy and money for businesses, providing them an opportunity to drive innovation and stay ahead of technology disruptions.
