The organizational approach of DevOps has shown its significance
across industries. The grit stems from its ability to speed up
deployments while simplifying maintenance of existing systems. Best
practices, automation, and other tools aid this approach. It based
on controlled iterations. In its initial phase, it includes real
time monitoring, collaboration platforms, and incident response
systems. All these are enveloped in a CI/CD (continuous integration
and continuous delivery) philosophy.
The main factors that are driving this growth are software-driven
innovation, microservice-based architecture, and collaborative
operational processes along with automated application development.
Enterprises are heavily investing in all these spheres.
In this space, we will be discussing the benefits associated with
deployments and how this perception can redefine the future of this
philosophy. We will then marry these insights to understand why a
majority of businesses necessitate DevOps consulting. Let us start
with the benefits.
BENEFITS OF DEVOPS
Automating your way into efficiency
It is essentially a set of practices that fuels business
transformation. It is all about structural furtherance that aids
process and a cultural shift. The global automation market for
digital processes was at $6.77 Billion in 2018. After experiencing
a CAGR of 13.3% from 2018 to 2023, the market is set to reach
$12.61 Billion by 2023. Automating recurring tasks is a
sine-qua-non for companies operating in this space. It also
promotes an enhanced sense of collaboration between teams allowing
to achieve bigger business goals.
Patrick Debois, the initiator of this philosophy always believed
that the insights that one can gain through this is its biggest
positive. Dwelling productively on such insights can avoid
optimization of IT silos and prove beneficial for the entire
system. In other words, a comprehensive and holistic improvement
occurs. It lets businesses be extra adaptive and align with its
customers in a data-driven manner.
Speedy stable software
There are 5 predictors for development and operational success.
This includes lead time, frequency of deployment, availability,
time to restore, and change fail. Focusing on these parameters, the
“Accelerate State of DevOps Report” estimated that the stability
and speed of software deployment are significantly impacted in a
positive manner. It is 41% less time consuming and requires 21%
lesser time to address inconsistencies.
