DevOps can help channel the growth multiplier capabilities of new age companies


By Sameer Tilak, CTO, Josh Software

DevOps has paved the way for an enhanced digital operations paradigm for years by streamlining multiple functions. It brings huge time and cost savings for companies and millions of customers from different segments. Its ability to automate operations that are otherwise performed manually has given tech giants a boost and helped companies drastically reduce capital costs.

Without DevOps, online operations are hampered by disruptions, unresponsive interfaces, and lost revenue. With DevOps, a company can take advantage of the benefits that come from simultaneous feedback and upgrade. Through robust feedback and a value chain that is automated and built on collaboration across industries, DevOps has revolutionized the paradigm of software development and delivery.

Rich yield of DevOps:
DevOps brings a plethora of rich benefits to today’s businesses. Among other things, it improves workflows and coordination between teams and shortens deployment times. This ensures higher productivity and reduces costs and dead times for a company during the software development processes. Let’s take a closer look at some of these benefits:

Synchronization on a whole new level
DevOps brings developers and operations managers on the same page. Neither party can choose to operate in a bubble away from delivery destinations. Developers must design software in line with operational requirements, and leadership must set clear markers for software requirements. This type of joint brainstorming leads to a clear understanding of the end goals and a harmonious combination of workflows.

Increase deployment frequency
DevOps is about continuous delivery and innovation. Organizations can increase the frequency and speed of releases while reducing the time it takes to fix bugs and unveil new features. From build to delivery, the software development and delivery chain remains agile and can quickly attack inefficiencies.

Breakthrough solutions at breakneck speed
Excellent collaboration and a harmonized workflow eliminate disruptions faster while providing users with reliable and consistent performance. Various dimensions of the software are continuously tested for malfunctions. Practices such as monitoring and logging keep leadership updated on performance in real time.

Optimized workflows
DevOps makes it easier for teams and organizations to respond to unforeseen challenges. Organizational risks such as software crashes, malfunctions and screen failures are not uncommon. However, the DevOps principle is better equipped to handle unexpected bottlenecks. To achieve better results, companies can adopt microservices and continuous delivery, which puts greater responsibility on teams as they can take ownership and deliver results quickly.

Immerse yourself in the DevOps culture
DevOps is the first step towards a customer-centric culture. Software and operations managers need to realign themselves to practices that best serve customers and, consequently, the business. Contrasted with the age-old paradigm in which an organization operates diverse expertise, DevOps brings real engagement and interaction among employees, creating multidisciplinary teams that are better equipped to tackle complex real-world challenges.

Companies that cultivate DevOps practices among their employees have seen an impressive increase in results, an increase in deployment frequency, and a noticeable reduction in the time it takes to deploy new products. The benefits go beyond companies and trickle down to employees as well. DevOps increases job satisfaction by simplifying work processes and consequently making companies more productive and efficient.

Bright future beckons
Not many technology segments in the world can keep up with the growth of the global DevOps markets. In 2020, the size of this segment was estimated at a whopping $4,311.95 million, according to Business Wire. With a staggering CAGR of 18.95%, it will grow to over $12,215.54 million by 2026. DevOps has a bright future and some of these segments, such as microservice architecture and serverless computing, among others, are discussed below:

1. Microservices architecture
Microservices architecture breaks a monolithic application into smaller independent segments that seamlessly interact with each other. This provides more agility and scalability for the DevOps team during the development and testing phases. This saves time and money for the DevOps team. This has been used successfully in companies like Amazon, Uber, Etsy and Netflix.

2. Serverless Computing
Building a server infrastructure is usually expensive for any company. The massive costs explain why serverless computing has become increasingly popular in recent years. But not only the costs alone are advantageous. It also offers speed, consistency and flexibility. With serverless computing resulting in cost and time savings, organizations can now focus on expanding core business processes instead of dealing with high infrastructure costs.

3. Low-code application

Low-code applications took the software world by storm during the height of the pandemic. Since mid-2022, low-code applications have received rave reviews, and the list of organizations looking to move to these applications continues to grow. As the technology matures, you can rest assured that low-code applications will accompany the software development lifecycle from ideation to design, coding, testing, release, documentation, and more.

4. Kubernetes towards development
Slowly and steadily, Kubernetes will expand into the software space. As Kubernetes gains a place in the software arena, the burden of opening a Kubernetes cluster on a developer’s machine becomes relatively lighter. Consequently, it will help the DevOps team to integrate Kubernetes features into their software during the development cycle.

5. DevSecOps
The origin of DevOps can be traced back to the days of system administration. Since then it has evolved from DevOps to SecOps. This transition was only natural as companies have massive amounts of intellectual property and understand the importance of protecting it. DevSecOps also allows the team to monitor and fix potential security breaches during the development phase.

last words
As human intelligence continues to reign supreme, DevOps processes will continue to gain in importance. As more companies adopt DevOps teams, newer segments will continue to benefit. DevOps improves business efficiency and productivity by reducing the time and cost of developing and deploying software products. It also helps companies meet industry standards and customer needs.
