You have no idea what it is, but you heard you cannot live without it!
There are three main aspects of software development: governance, development, and operations. Governance is a business term. To put it into simple words, it means making decisions about the application we are building (and maintaining). The two latter ones are self-explanatory technical terms and encompass the processes of developing and operating the software products. In recent times they are referred to as DevOps.
Today’s digital world depends on software, so the applications made their way from being a support to the business to becoming the business itself. That led to the famous saying that every company becomes a software company. If this is true, then the behaviors that revolve around software development should become the ones that are an integral part of the culture of the company, shouldn’t they? Essentially, this is DevOps, comprised of the tool, process, and cultural changes in digital organizations.
Containers and Orchestration
Docker and Kubernetes are today’s synonyms for container technology, enabling us to quickly pack our applications into isolated pieces that can successfully run on all platforms, both on-premises and in the cloud, taking all its dependencies on with them. Since it is effectively removing the ping-pong between development and operations, it has quickly become a part of the essential DevOps toolset.
Our team of experts in this field and can help you containerize your apps as well as guide you with choosing the best deployment options for them.
Continuous integration (CI) means continuously building and testing new versions of the software. Experts are still arguing whether CD stands for continuous delivery or deployment. However, what is essential is that these technologies enable us to automate the delivery of the new version of the application quickly and painlessly. Automating the application delivery helps us to bring new value to our customers without any downtime. Whether you are a fan of GitHub, Azure DevOps, or some other tool, our team can help you integrate them into your development, testing, and deployment processes.
Once the application is in production, monitoring its usage and behavior becomes crucial for stability and performance. Various cloud and non-cloud tools exist today, which can help you streamline this process. It is necessary to choose a tool that can integrate into your environment so you can gather all information in one place enabling you to act when something gets broken. We can help you with the decision. We can help you implement what you choose.
