Digital transformation needs no introduction. However, there are still many business pockets running their core systems on legacy and complex IT architecture. This inherently slows down IT and business performance stifles innovation and increases risks. According to a report, only 25% of businesses were able to achieve their IT transformation objectives and had significant layers of the legacy environment. Whereas, businesses that have been able to modernize their IT infrastructure and applications, are growing much faster.
While modernizing IT, businesses need an all-encompassing strategy for managing and upgrading technologies, and DevOps is the best choice in this regard. The blog article discusses the importance of DevOps and how it raises the bar for application modernization.
DevOps: Creating a difference
Businesses can launch their products and services more quickly by automating and streamlining the software development management process with a few key practices. Making small, frequent updates is a fundamental DevOps strategy. Compared to changes made using conventional release procedures, these updates are typically more incremental. Updates are released much more frequently by companies using a DevOps approach than by companies that use conventional software development methods
The foundational elements of the DevOps principles are cooperation and communication. The workflows and responsibilities of development and operations are physically brought together through the automation of the software delivery process to create collaboration. The ability to communicate between developers, operations, and even other teams, like marketing and sales, enables the entire organization to closely coordinate objectives and projects.
How DevOps simplifies Application Modernization?
DevOps brings a new level of energy when it comes to application modernization. You get introduced to a rigorous set of practices such as continuous development (CD), continuous integration (CI), and testing to transform monolithic services into independently deployable microservices. As opposed to working on a system as a whole, developers can now work on small, autonomous, quickly deployable units. The release and scaling cycles are automated via containerization. This way, DevOps accelerates your application modernization journey.
Business Research INSIGHTS estimates that by 2027, the global DevOps industry will be worth $10.14 billion. 9.54% CAGR is what the forecasted growth rate will be.
The acceptance of microservices-based architectures and associated development methodologies including automated application development and operational processes are some of the factors propelling DevOps adoption.
New companies are currently beginning to adopt DevOps technologies and practices. The DevOps methodology will assist organizations in moving past automation and concentrating on high-quality deliverables.
