What is DevOps?
DevOps is a set of practices that aim to automate the process by combining practices and tools between software development and the testing teams release applications and services at a faster rate. It breaks the traditional form of development set ups that result in ‘siloing’ development and operations teams and instead creates a new method where there is a continuous conversation.
Under this method, engineers work across the entire application lifestyle from the start including development, deployment, testing and are not limited to only a single task, instead develop a range of skills. This ensures that quality assurance and security teams also become more integrated with the development and operations teams to ensure a top-notch product!
DevOps comes with a number of different benefits that can be across the entire organization:
Speed: A major chunk of the time when it comes to app development and deployment is wasted in waiting. The periods of waiting where the app is shipped from one department to another add a considerable amount of time in the app development process. With DevOps, the process is streamlined which means less time is wasted and things move much faster and more efficiently.
Faster Delivery: A more streamlined and automated process ensures that your app is delivered faster. Each release can be worked on and deployed more rapidly.
Quality: Since continuous integration and continuous deployment are primary processes in DevOps, it ensures a complete transparent working environment. This creates a better management system between the teams which results in more quality work across all streams.
Improved Collaboration: The DevOps model results in more team activities, which means that you require building strong teams that work exceptionally well along with one other. This strategy requires a ‘systems thinking’ approach that results in employees becoming aware of how your actions not only affect the individual person but also the entire team and the product.
Increased Security: While you sacrifice some security benefits when automating, but a more hands-off approach and collaborative environment ensures that your apps are built to offer the best security you can offer.
This 3-month dedicated program will include numerous labs, quizzes, projects and exams at the end of each course. Once completed, you will be awarded an e-degree which will reflect your performance and your score from each course.
That’s not all, there will also be webinars, moderated forums, reviews and instructor support that enhance your learning experience!
DevOps as a Career
DevOps is growing today at a fast pace as more companies are turning towards this method to streamline their development and deployment process. The collaboration between the teams not only results in apps being built faster, but also ensures apps are bigger and better.
DevOps has shown great promise in 2017, and is expected to grow even more in this year. According to Research Company, Forester, DevOps is expected to reach $7.72 billion by 2021, a growth of 33% annually.
Their research also revealed the number of companies that have already implemented DevOps in 2018 and also the ones that are interested in implementing and expanding this process. This shows that 50% of the business reviewed were actually interested using DevOps within their organisation.
This makes right now the best time to become a master DevOps and its technologies to get an edge in the market!
