Most companies that can react very quickly to changes have a very important competitive advantage. Those that manage to meet new customer needs in a short period of time will be successful and may continue to be so as long as they continue to meet the challenge.
What is the strategy of DevOps?
There is a consistent DevOps strategy in companies. Specialised departments, managers, administrators, testers and developers work together in a cross-functional way – in a permanent exchange with the customer. The focus on the “we” is the central element of DevOps. Other important DevOps values are mutual trust, empowerment, transparency and accountability as well as continuous improvement, simplification of decisions through well visualised data and empathy with the customer. A change in culture as well as a change in mindset is essential. There is no longer a “them”, but only a “us”.
The DevOps philosophy can be experienced completely independently of the number of employees or the size of the turnover. SMEs, which form the backbone of the German economy thanks to their innovative strength, benefit from DevOps approaches that enable faster feedback cycles and increased processing speed.
Ideas and benefits behind DevOps
DevOps is a term for a group of concepts that improve the development (Dev) and operation (Ops) of software. It is about participating together (Dev & Ops) in the entire software life cycle – from idea to operation.
Maximum automation and transparency ensure that new (IT) services are made available to the end customer quickly and with the same stability. Consistently used, employees are also productive in new projects, almost without training, because the work processes and roles (responsibilities) are standardised and identical.
