What is DevOps?
DevOps is a software development methodology, which aims to shorten the software development life cycle and provide continuous delivery of high quality software.
In this ever-changing world of technology, Wollow can deliver continuously evolving software at pace using the DevOps methodology. The ability to roll out improved functions to software continuously has become essential.
Using the DevOps model, we can help you to create bespoke software applications and systems that are released quickly and maintained through small, regular updates.
Benefits of DevOps:
- Faster time to market – in a highly competitive market, the time it takes to get your product released can make all the difference. Using the DevOps model and continuous delivery, software can be deployed up to 10x faster than using other methods, giving your business a competitive edge.
- Rapid delivery – the frequency of releases can be faster, allowing your business to improve functionality and continue to run with minimal disruptions to service.
- Improved productivity – teams work together under the DevOps model instead of as separate entities, sharing ownership and accountability and combining workflows. This creates more autonomy and reduces inefficiencies.
- Reduced risk – quality concerns can be identified early, reducing the lead time between fixes and achieving a lower failure rate of new releases. This can also reduce the costs of development time and resources spent fixing bugs.
How it works - our DevOps services span the life cycle of the software and can be used for anything from customer-facing systems to large-scale enterprise systems.
- Continuous Integration - continuous integration is a DevOps practice where developers regularly merge their code changes into a central repository, after which automated builds and tests are run. The main goals of continuous integration are to find and address bugs quicker, improve software quality, and reduce the time it takes to validate and release new software updates.
- Continuous Deployment - one key practice of DevOps is to perform small, but frequent updates to the software. Frequent but small updates help to address bugs faster because teams can identify the last deployment that caused the error.
- Communication and Collaborative Working - increased communication and collaboration are key cultural aspects of DevOps. This helps speed up communication across developers, operations, and even other teams like marketing or sales, allowing all parts of the organization to align more closely on goals and projects.
