12 Days of DevOps: 11 Automated Actions

“On the eleventh day of Christmas my IT guy gave to me, 11 automated actions”

Though controversial of late, automation has become fashionable in its use in business and technology. From self-driving cars to self-serve kiosks at supermarkets, the rise of automation has been transformative to human interaction and business operations.

Much of automation has been a result of rising customer expectations, a common theme laid out in The 12 Days of DevOps. Between customers expecting technology availability 24/7 and executives seeking ways to remain competitive in crowded markets, the value of automation grants the ability to focus on maintaining and growing the core business.

If automation is something you’re still looking to add to your DevOps and organization this holiday season, consider the following reasons:

  • Continuous Releases: The regular release of working software is at the core of DevOps, contrary to the traditional method of releasing software all the time. This means customers get newer features and big fixes at a faster rate.
  • Test Automation: The possibility of human error is always at the center of every software development process. DevOps tools including Sonatype reduce human error by automating the software supply chain, pushing products to market faster.
  • Technology Resiliency: A successful DevOps strategy requires platforms that allow for experimentation and resiliency. Resilient systems especially can automatically detect, avoid, heal, and remediate any issues that prevent a system from working normally. Platforms that enable experimentation enable agility towards business outcomes and customer service.
