As per 2022 Mckinsey report, moving to DevOps include a 25 to 30% increase in capacity creation, a 50 to 75% reduction in time to market, and a greater than 50% reduction in failure rates.
Organizations that run on DevOps methodology, roll out features almost 200 times faster and financially are more cost-effective than their counterparts. These all may sound too good to be true if you are unfamiliar to the whole concept of integrating your development and operations team. However, all those who have implemented the DevOps method agree that few results are yielded almost instantly.
Why moving to DevOps might be the best decision for your organization?
The traditional “plan-build-run” operating model may not be best for modern tech companies. However, in reality, organizations need to deliver on new stable features while ensuing zero error in features. In the DevOps approach (please attach the previous blog link here), a single team stays responsible for the development and deployment of a product. Thus, it becomes easy to ensure a smooth customer experience across.
Saving time by reducing inter-departmental knowledge transfer:
As one DevOps team ensures the end-to-end process completion, the quality of the software develops significantly. Even the maintenance process is simplified, as the team can easily understand the bugs that may be bothering the end user. In this process, the DevOps team functions as the centralized team, whereas the rest of the organizational teams act as supporters. The centralized team, with its vast experience and specialized responsibilities, can adapt the process to suit the needs of the software developed. As the team that is developing the software is implementing it, the TAT (turn-around-time) is almost non-existent.
Promoting a culture of trust and mutual risk-sharing:
With the practice of DevOps, the teams learn ways to trust a centralized team and focus on tasks at hand. As everyone handles a part of the task, understanding the bigger picture becomes relatively easy. DevOps makes it inherently easy to share knowledge and build best practices that can be followed in future. Teams learn how to experiment to improve the existing processes, products, or services. DevOps paves the way for research that helps learn changing customer needs and build innovative solutions around them. With the ever changing process modification, there is a major cultural shift that happens within the teams. Organizations can ensure the teams are happier, more in-sync, and overall satisfied, which directly translates to benefits from an organizational perspective.
Improving customer relationship:
Customer experience remains the top priority of every major tech and non-tech conglomerate. The DevOps method mitigates the room for error (as discussed above). With consistent and improved team performance, DevOps optimizes all the tool necessary for running the entire business smoothly. With the centralized team developing and implementing the product changes, the software can be introduced to the customer almost immediately, and with incoming feedback, improvement happens within days of the first rollout. As customers quickly get what they signed up for, it results in higher revenue generation.
Leverage automation to reduce human errors:
With the ultimate goal of providing users with error-free, high-quality software, DevOps strives for perfection through automation. Humans can make an error while dealing with data and information regularly. The human mind can easily miss signs that may result in huge bugs in the product. The DevOps process is agile through continuous product development, delivery, testing, and improvement. With perpetual task automation, smart infrastructure, single-click deployment is achievable. And automation can only be achieved through tools that enable the development and operations team to come together and share a mutually cohesive platform where they can communicate and collaborate. Brillius has developed such a pioneering platform for your teams to come together and perform better.
