What is the DevOps Movement all about?

by Mariia Lvovych Founder at

You may have come across the term, ‘DevOps’, a buzzword that has evolved in the recent years. True indeed, it is an overused hybrid of the two words, ‘development’ and ‘operations’. It is a software development and delivery methodology that streamlines digitized business. The DevOps Movement involves most of the startups that have evolved after 2009, when the concept first appeared. Further research on ‘Agile Infrastructure’, which developed the previous year, stimulates the evolution of the concept.


DevOps are crucial for sustaining modern business, particularly in the competition clutter in the digitized ecosystem. It promotes the collaboration between different quarters of a business, including the product managers, software developers and other professionals. They can collaborate with their business objectives in a better way.


Why are companies embracing the DevOps movement?


Both established companies and startups are embracing DevOps, as it creates a better environment for software development. Creating a software calls for technical excellence, and the DevOps Movement is all about automation of this process. The professionals can monitor the software integration process, test them before deployment and incorporate necessary changes in the infrastructure, as necessary. In a nutshell, it provides the developers with the ideal conditions to develop these tools.


You will find two trends in the adaptation process of DevOps. A particular section of the IT firms is directly blending the development and operational process into a single team. In other firms, a moderator coordinates the two teams within the organization.


Where are the DevOps being deployed?


When you adopt DevOps on your platform, you can bolster your infrastructure, with faster delivery process and better collaboration. Business firms with traditional data storage systems as well as cloud systems are adapting to this system. Today, different stakeholders are incorporating the process in order to automate their delivery mechanism. DevOps help them to cut down the lead time in between fixes and lower the rates of failure of new software.


Apart from this, the key feature of the DevOps Movement is speed, which helps the companies to improve the frequency of deployment. They are also able to market their products faster when they get a suitable environment for the purpose. Another benefit of deploying DevOps is the companies can improve the time required for recovery of these products.


Different phases of the DevOps maturity


The phases of DevOps maturity can be divided into four segments:


Waterfall development


Prior to the integration process, the developers used to prepare the codes, which took around two to three months. They used to merge these codes, which were inconsistent and unproductive.


Continuous integration


During this phase, the developers could integrate the developed code quickly to the main body of the code. It saved them a lot of time.


Continuous delivery


This was an extension of the previous process, where additional testing and automation mechanism was added to the process.


Continuous deployment


Today, the continuous deployment phase is being largely adopted by companies. Here, the production process is automated and it can operate without intervention of humans.


 In the contemporary world, thousands of companies across the globe are welcoming the DevOps Movement for a better business set-up.
