The speed at which technology moves these days is overwhelming for any technology leader faced with the challenge of making technology adoption solutions and migrating workloads. The sheer amount of solutions on the market can lead to long evaluation periods, resulting in delayed projects, lost go-to-market opportunities, and frustrated customers.
It’s understandable, with the DevOps toolchain consists of tools composed of solutions covering numerous themes. Here are some examples to start:
- Plan – The gathering of requirements that benefit both the technical and business sides of the business. Much of what happens here also impacts the management of IT infrastructure.
- Create – The building, coding, and configuration of the software development including the improvement of code quality and software build performance.
- Verify – Good software requires quality assurance. During the verification process, solutions are used to conduct activities including acceptance testing, regression testing, and configuration testing.
- Preproduction – A good release requires good preparation. The preproduction process handles activities including release staging and holding, package configuration, and triggered releases.
- Release – The scheduling, orchestration, provisioning, and deploying of software into production and targeted environments for consumption.
- Configure – The operational activities of DevOps which include application provisioning and configuration, infrastructure storage, and database management.
- Monitor – In conjunction with development, IT monitors the performance of infrastructure, end user behavior, and production metrics.
Solutions missing any of these themes can impact projects catastrophically. What’s a technology executive to do?
