For more than a decade now, DevOps has been bringing the development and IT teams together to release better software, faster. Despite its relative maturity, this practice still confronts roadblocks that hinder its progress.
The Agile development teams are frequently releasing application updates. To avoid delays or failures, they focus on every aspect of the delivery cycle. The DevOps team has started involving the database code in CI/CD pipeline, which was earlier limited to application code only. By doing this, it is ensured that changes in the DB (new features, updates, or bug fixes) reach users as fast as possible.
Biotech and pharmaceutical companies are required to comply with regulations enforced by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Among these regulations is the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) which governs the quality control of not just manufacturing practices and facilities but also the technology components of the drug production process.
It’s been more than a decade that DevOps as a practice has been bridging the gap between the development and operations teams. It’s breaking down the silos between the two and automating the delivery cycle. Just like we implement DevOps to the delivery pipeline (to deal with the varying development environment), it is time that we start doing the same for databases.
The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the digitization of business processes. While numerous tools supported rapid digitization, it somewhere impacted security, observability, traceability, and compliance of the digital solutions.
To understand event-driven automation we first need to define what is an event? As per the Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL), an event is a change of state that holds importance for the management of an IT service or other Configuration Item (CI).
The concept of DevOps is now popular owing to its importance in a cloud-based environment that involves automation for the testing and deployment of software builds. When development and operations teams are not able to communicate well with
The current trend of the IT industry is based on the principle of automation. This isn’t just hype because the marvelous effects of automating various tasks are widely known by now. Planning out the budget effectively and reducing maintenance costs are some of the deemed automation outcomes.
IT world is full of various terminologies that are often related to each other. When it comes to digital transformation, DevOps and CloudOps are often touted as two essential ingredients to get much needed competitive advantage and offer differentiated services.
This year has marked a downturn for various industries. However, there are some that are actually enabling many to sail through the tough time. The software development industry is one of them.
