Organizations are stepping further away from siloed departments because they’ve realized there’s much more to gain from cross-organizational teamwork.
In the world of IT, this new teamwork spirit is best seen in SaaS companies. Traditionally, SaaS companies had software built by one team, and the developers’ team would pass it on to operations to run and operate it.
Tighter time-to-market windows have made this approach unsustainable because customers don’t want to spend long periods figuring out how to operate the software. Also, the market is flooded with intuitive software. A lack of collaboration between a company’s development and operations teams puts it at a disadvantage because they can’t work together to ensure the software performs optimally.
DevOps is a 21st-century term coined by merging development and operations. It represents a teamwork approach to the tasks performed by a company’s application development and IT operations teams.
An organization embracing DevOps also institutes a culture shift, such as building trust and cohesion between development and operations and intentionally aligning tech projects to business requirements.
Instead of building an app and figuring out the operational aspects later, you make operational requirements part of the engineering process. Early in development, you spot and build any additional elements needed to make the app resilient to meet customers’ needs.
DevOps provides a competitive advantage to any organization willing to embrace it, but there are several obstacles that can hinder businesses from reaping the full potential and benefits of DevOps. Watch the video below to find out what these pitfalls are.
