DevOps can help channel the growth multiplier capabilities of new-age firms

For years now, DevOps has been paving the way for an improved digital-operational paradigm by streamlining multiple functions. It yields enormous time and cost savings for firms and millions of customers spanning varied segments. Its capacity for automating operations that are otherwise executed manually has boosted tech giants and helped organizations cut back drastically on fixed asset costs.

Without DevOps, online operations will be marred by glitches, unresponsive interfaces and revenue loss. With DevOps, a firm can tap into its benefits arising from simultaneous feedback and upgradation. Via robust feedback and a value-delivery chain that is automated and predicated on collaboration between verticals, DevOps has revolutionized the software development and delivery paradigm.

DevOps’ Rich Yield:
DevOps yields a plethora of rich benefits for the businesses of today. It improves workflows, and inter-team coordination and boosts deployment times, among others. This ensures higher productivity and lowers costs and dead times for a business during software development processes. Let’s take a closer look at a few of those benefits:

Synchronization at 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 the delivery goals. Developers have to mould software in tune with the operational requirements, and the leadership has to set clear markers on software requirements. This kind of collaborative brainstorming leads to a clear understanding of end goals and a harmonious combination of workflows.

Boost the Deployment Frequency
With DevOps, there is continuous delivery and innovation. Businesses can up the frequency and speed of releases while simultaneously reducing the time taken to fix bugs and unveil new features. From building to deployment, the software development and delivery chain remain agile and quick to attack any inefficiency.

Breakthrough Solutions at Breakneck Speed
With superior collaboration and a harmonised workflow, glitches are eliminated at a faster pace while delivering reliable and consistent performance to users. Different dimensions of the software are continuously tested for malfunctions. Practices like monitoring and logging keep the leadership apprised of real-time performance.

Optimized Workflows
DevOps makes it easier for teams and organizations to respond to unforeseen challenges. Organizational risks like software crashes, glitches, and screen blackouts are not unheard of. However, the DevOps principle is better equipped to take on unexpected bottlenecks. For better results, firms can bring in microservices and continuous delivery, which imposes greater responsibility on teams by allowing them to take charge and deliver results quickly.

Delving into DevOps Culture
DevOps is the first step towards a customer-first culture. Software and operations managers need to re-align themselves to practices that best serve the customers and, consequently, the firm. Contrasted with the age-old paradigm where a firm operated different pockets of expertise, DevOps brings in true engagement and interaction amongst the workforce, thereby creating multi-disciplinary teams that are better equipped to curtail complex real-world challenges.

Firms that cultivate DevOps practices within their employees have seen an impressive rise in deliverables, a rise in the frequency of deployment, and a perceptible cut down in the time taken to deploy new products. The benefits transcend firms and percolate employees as well. DevOps increases work satisfaction by improving the ease of workflow, consequently making businesses more productive and efficient.

Bright Future Beckons
Not many tech segments in the world can rival the growth of the global DevOps markets. In 2020, as per Business Wire, this segment’s size was estimated at a whopping $ 4,311.95 million. Growing at a blistering CAGR of 18.95%, it will scale over $ 12,215.54 million by 2026. A bright future beckons for DevOps and a few of these segments, such as microservice architecture and serverless computing, among others, are discussed below:

1. Microservices Architecture
Microservices architecture divides a monolithic application into smaller independent segments which seamlessly interact with each other. This accords for greater agility and scalability to the DevOps team throughout the development and testing phases. This saves both time and cost for the DevOps team. This has been deployed efficaciously in companies like Amazon, Uber, Etsy, and Netflix.

2. Serverless Computing
Setting up server infrastructure is usually expensive for any company. The towering costs explain why serverless computing is gaining popularity over the last few years. But, it isn’t just cost alone that is beneficial. It also provides speed, consistency and flexibility. With serverless computing resulting in cost and time efficiencies, firms can now channel their focus on expanding core business processes instead of dealing with lofty infrastructure costs.

3. Low-code Application

Low-code applications took the software world by storm during the peak of the pandemic. As of mid- 2022, low-code applications have been earning rave reviews, and the list of organizations looking to transition to these applications grows longer. As the technology matures, one can be sure that low-code applications will shoulder the software development cycle right from ideation, designing, coding, testing, release, documentation, and much more.

4. Kubernetes towards Development
Slowly and steadily, Kubernetes will expand into the software domain. As Kubernetes carves out a place for itself in the software space, the burden of opening a Kubernetes cluster on a developer’s machine will become relatively lighter. Consequently, it will help the DevOps team to incorporate Kubernetes features in 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 into SecOps. This transition was only natural, given that companies hold massive intellectual property and understand the importance of safeguarding them. DevSecOps also lets the team monitor and rectify any possible security breaches during the development phase.

Final Words
While human intelligence continues to remain paramount, DevOps processes will continue to grow in stature. As more businesses deploy DevOps teams, newer segments will keep benefitting from it. DevOps improves business efficiency and productivity by reducing the time and cost to develop and deploy software products. It also helps businesses meet industry standards and the needs of the customer.
