Why DevOps is Critical to Today’s Business
Learning from HKBN #TTT Campaign
DevOps is the union of people, process, and tools to enable continuous delivery of value to your business. DevOps is a cultural movement that changes individuals to think about their work, value the diversity of project scope, support intentional processes that accelerate the realization of business value, and measure the impact of social and technical changes. It is a way of thinking and a way of working that enables individuals and organizations to develop and maintain sustainable work practices. It is a cultural framework for sharing stories and developing empathy, enabling people and teams to practice their crafts in effective and lasting manner.
By applying DevOps tools, we can:
- Keep history of code changes, build artefacts and release
- Bring more frequent updates with automated build and release
- Automate testing to avoid failure by manual code deployment
- Improve testability from smaller, specific changes
So we can increase deployment frequency, shorten lead time for changes, lower change failure rate and speed up mean time to recover.
