Finding What Automation Does For Devops

CIOInsider Team

The tremendous rise of DevOps as the new-age IT solution is a prime example of how agile is the transformation in nature of work and project delivery occurs in the IT domain. More than a technology, the buzzword has acquired a notion of principle among the technocrats and developers. Equipping the IT industry with a novel approach in the software lifecycle at a new speed, there has been significant new predictions that are anticipated to move DevOps practices through this year. However, the real question is what made developers to adopt such a practice that entirely transforms an organizational structure.

If you ask this to any technocrat, the answer will be Automation, since its future has become undeniably relevant. Faster response to customer requirements in the changing technology

landscape is hustling the process of eliminating bottlenecks and removing cumbersome manual tasks to the hands of automation. As many engineers now perform, the leveraging of integration technologies brings tools from different stakeholders in operations, engineering, developing and QA team. As such integration powers an end-to-end automated DevOps practice across multiple disparate tools, a culture of shared knowledge and idea develops within the organization’s technical team.

Changes developed in this form will further create a real-time report that consolidates several projects which are progressing at different phase. In the other case, the software team would end-up having no consistent workflows and results in silos. This challenge could be addressed in the aforementioned process by standardizing the workflow, processes and protocols. Standardization could be seen as a relevant method in automation. While observing the wider view of the DevOps landscape, automation plays a larger than approach for SDLC pipelines. Code development, for example, could define the changes that are creating and triggering for appropriate activities such as saving time and simplifying complex projects. It could also mean to support, execute and manage continuous testing in DevOps environments. The developments and QA are also managed for continuous testing.

As in any other technology, the concept of automation is to enable agile and effective collaboration between members of the DevOps organization. This too has flaws when the tasks are repetitive in nature, only to pile up automation waste. At the same time, it can be identified whether a process has failed or not much easier and faster than a manual approach. While the core purpose of DevOps is deeply rooted in the agile development of software with higher quality in the best frequency, automation has to be embraced for strengthening the process by making sure of no backfires in the end result.
