Development, Quality Assurance and Operation
DevOps is the science of IT systems and infrastructure configuration and management, and at its core encourages cross-team interaction. A comprehensive, robust, and reliable setup is essential to getting the most from your products and services. DevOps is also about making your software development and delivery process more automated, reliable, smooth, fast, repeatable, and pain-free. What this means for businesses is a greater ROI (Return on Investment) and a shorter development time.
You can see it in the numbers, too. We managed to save one of our clients $84k per year by switching hosting from Heroku to AWS. When IBM gave Nationwide a DevOps overhaul, they saw a 70% decrease in downtime, and had a 50% increase in code quality. When Atlassian helped JAMF with their DevOps culture, testing time decreased by 20%, and they now have patches and fixes to customers in minutes and days instead of weeks and months. Companies that excel at DevOps include huge names like Netflix, Etsy, and Ebay - all massive realtime critical systems.
As companies move away from on-site systems and services and in-house engineers to in-cloud, managed and automated technologies, it can be difficult to keep up with the latest advances - the latest solutions that help make your business run more effectively, efficiently and hassle free.
