While Scaling up the Business and working with remote teams with a different skillset and culture, I realize the need for processes and automation to improve productivity and collaboration. Hence, I figure out the need for DevOps Implementation Strategy and Deployment in Enterprises.
At the growth stage, with 3+ Years experience of delivering more than 55 projects in various domains for Startups and Enterprises including –
We started transformation towards DevOps Strategy by adopting processes like Integration of DevOps Tools, processes and data into our work culture. Parallelly, we started adopting different Infrastructure architectures, building Private Cloud, Docker, Apache Mesos, and Kubernetes.
We started by creating two separate teams from the existing pool of developers to adopt DevOps culture for new Projects in Big Data and Mobile Applications. After Initial hurdles in adaptation to Collaboration Tools and new delivery pipeline, results came out were extraordinary.
Today most of the companies and organizations have already adopted DevOps, or they are on the verge of adopting them in their projects in the nearby future. But this adoption needs to be taken extra care of, it’s not like a trend is going, let’s follow it and implement it.
Start from scratch and look at your requirements. It should not be the case that you know the appropriate tool, and you start using it then and there. That approach is suitable for only short term use as it is not future proof. So it is better to gather as much information as possible and try integrating them in the DevOps environment.
DevOps Adoption should be revolving around the best practices that are associated with the DevOps. Best practices include test automation, continuous delivery, continuous deployments, configuration management and many more. These could help achieve efficiency.
Everything has its pros and cons, and DevOps is no different. Still, some companies state that they are not able to grab the full use of DevOps and its functionalities. It is better to engineer the useful DevOps into stages or sectors where you want to implement features of DevOps.
Here are some of the flaws which revolve around the companies and organizations.
In the above mentioned flaws, there was one thing common thing that was no proper planning and direct use of services. And most of the company’s projects go in vain because of Improper implementation of DevOps. Here are some of the ways and qualities that an organization and enterprise should adapt to.
Work should not be limited to a particular team, and it should be distributed into sections or sectors and provided them with the necessary data they needed. Building up a strong backbone for your project.
It would help if you had many teams which could be able to handle a particular section to provide an efficient result. And the most critical team which every company must attach to is the security team which looks after the DevOps.
One organization should take full ownership of its DevOps environment by saying that you should put close eyes on the behaviour of the environment of the DevOps so that you will be notified early if any problem could arise shortly.
Logs and metrics provide data that would give a lifeline to a project which is on the verge of getting affected.
There are multiple logging and monitoring tools available which could act as the best practice to the DevOps infrastructure you want to attain.
You should maintain the environment which suits all the requirements and the compliance from the client-side and your side as well.
No access should be given to the unauthorized person so that your data or your information will remain safe.
And compliance should also be looked at very carefully as no deeds should be done which might hamper the quality or the reputation of the organization.
Keep a proper check on personals having the authorization to use the resources.
Integration of the DevOps approach not only building the companies efficient method but also helping them to deliver their product to the customers in a short period. Quality Assurance which could be achieved with DevOps is not something that could be ignored. Broadly, there are so many approaches present which we cannot ignore. So when we talk about the latest trends in technology, there might be the case that if you don’t have a proper team than some members in the project knows about the new technology trends.
During Transformation Towards Agile & DevOps, DevOps needs a platform where we can define workflow with different Integrations.
Implementing DevOps Culture into your workflow requires using of specialized tools.
