So many businesses are moving to the cloud precisely because of its unprecedented operational agility. But when it comes to dynamically reacting to new business needs, even cloud services are only as responsive as their underlying development methodology.
Rolling out new features and updates will still take months if every change becomes bogged down in months of cumbersome testing. At the same time, quality assurance is essential in any enterprise technology environment. Seeking to maximize the value of their cloud service deployments, today’s technology managers face a dual challenge: defining development processes that can quickly deliver key improvements while still maintaining quality testing and validation workflows.
DevOps methodologies center on navigating this challenge without compromising. That means increasing the speed at which updates, apps, and new features can be rolled out while maintaining enterprise-grade quality control.
