What is DevOps?

Revolutionizing Development Processes


DevOps is reshaping both our mindset and work methodologies.


Developers require a system to ensure their code consistently operates in a production-like environment, with the same distribution, version, and remote services. This means writing code once – without adjustments to the infrastructure after the fact.


To address this challenge, teams that were once distinct from one another – including sys admins, QA engineers, and operations teams – are transitioning into the more encompassing realm of DevOps. This term reflects their evolving role; they are no longer expected to engage in day-to-day, hands-on processes. Instead, they focus on developing automated processes supporting the end-to-end code-to-production pipeline. This involves incorporating essential steps such as security checks, scans, QA tests, unit and system testing, and deployment to production.


The objective of DevOps is to establish processes that make the pipeline independent of manual intervention. Throughout the code-writing phase, tools must be in place to ensure code integrity, free from vulnerabilities or dependencies on insecure modules. The remaining pipeline stages, including the creation of unit and system testing environments, automation of all test processes, final validation tests, and deployment to production, should also be fully automated. To be successful, continuous communication with development and production stakeholders is crucial.


DevOps is more than just a buzzword; it’s a practical approach that streamlines work, improves collaboration, and speeds up software delivery. As technology evolves, embracing DevOps isn’t just an option—it’s a must for staying ahead in the world of continuous innovation.
