DEVOPS AND THE CLOUD— A NATURAL PAIR
Let’s start with DevOps.
Forrester Research dubbed 2018 the year of DevOps. And it’s no wonder, with over half of enterprises implementing or expanding existing DevOps practices. So why are they doing that? Here are a few good reasons to consider it:
DEVOPS OFFERS YOUR ORGANIZATION:
• Greater productivity and faster delivery of products
• Greater visibility and collaboration across projects,
departments, and individuals
• Less siloing
So, DevOps removes friction; and as a practical environment for DevOps, the cloud just makes sense.
HOW THE CLOUD ENHANCES YOUR DEVOPS ORGANIZATION
• Rapid deployment of new environments
• Reduced IT costs through subscription and SaaS (pay as you go) payment structures
• Moving from CapEx expenditures for hardware to OpEx expenses for SaaS
• Fast, agile scalability
So why the urgency to make these innovations? The truth is, they’re not really innovative anymore. it’s already happened.
The bar has been raised and you need a new edge.
