DevOps : Emerging New Technologies in Software Development
The new technology is evolving at lightning speed in the present. In the future, the three main types of technologies will be more prevalent including Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things, and Robotics.
But software is the foundation for any technology. It is imperative that the software infrastructure for any technology be strong and flawless.
In the current scenario, India and the rest of the world continue to make strong efforts to strengthen their software infrastructure. And to strengthen the infrastructure currently, they preferred to use DevOps technology.
One report also says that by 2023, the DevOps market cap will be reached up to 10.31 billion dollars. so as a software developer, it is very important for you to keep yourself upgraded and learn the new technology as I am discussing right now which is DevOps.
What is DevOps and why is it needed today?
DevOps is a combination of two words Dev and Ops. Dev means development and Ops means operations.
Its main purpose is to bring together both the software development team and the IT operations team on the same platform, reducing the time required for software development and its development process and helping in continuous good quality software development.
For Example, Suppose there is a software development company. In which two main teams are working.
Team 1) Software Development Team
The main task is to develop new software according to the orders received as well as the needs of the users.
Team 2) I.T Operation Team
The operation team is responsible to deliver the software to the market which is created by the software development team. After the publication of the software get feedback from the users on how the software is running.
Are there any issues or any other thing and if they found any issues the operation team’s task is to solve or resolve their issues?
The software development team has created software and it is launched now. After the launching of the software If a user complains of any difficulty, then first they will discuss to the operation team (Team 2) and Team 2 will discuss the issue with Team 1 (Means Development team).
Now if there is any misunderstanding between the team and the customer regarding technical issues during this process, then the development of the software developer will be slowed down and the credibility of the software will be reduced.
To solve such a miscommunication DevOps has been developed to establish good coordination between the two teams and easily resolve any issues arising regarding customer software. so that the company progresses and the company continues to produce high-quality software.
History of DevOps
It was first mentioned in 2008 by patrick debois. It became a major topic of discussion at the 2009 Belgium conference.
According to a report, only 14% of global organizations accepted it in 2014, but by June 2021, the figure has risen to 43%.
Increase the software delivery time
The process of software development can be speeded up by adopting the principles of automated methods and consequently, the delivery of software products can be done faster and at the same time faster by the software developer to suit the customers and their needs. A feedback feature is also possible.
A high level of coordination and communication between the teams working under the method of establishing collaboration between software manufacturers has been achieved. Its direct effect is seen in the form of good product quality and fast delivery.
The coding is done in such a way that while using the software by the user / the customer does not get any error. This is how there is no defect in the software so that the customer can get high-quality software service as well as smooth production.
DevOps is also known as continuous delivery, because of its automated process, the developed software product is always in “Release – Ready – State” mode.
“Release – Ready – State” mode is a pre-production type process in which the app developer goes through various stages to test the full suitability of the new software applications. And also verify the software.
