Or improve communication between your development and operations teams?
Consider deploying DevOps best practices to blend tasks performed by your application development and operations teams, and achieve better communication, more efficient application performance and management, satisfied customers / end users, and profit!
As more operations become programmable today and you may have a need to refactor your application before migrating it to the Cloud, your highest-priority task is to eliminate a gap in communication between your Dev and Ops.
Traditionally, a software development team is in charge of gathering technical and business requirements to enable coding of a software product. Dev Team normally designs, programs and tests software in an isolated development environment and releases the code to operations team for use if all of the project requirements are met.
The operations team deploys the program and maintains and supports it from that point on. However, this paradigm has proven to be very ineffective and usually results in blame shifting and overheads if something goes wrong in the post-release stage.
That’s pretty logical as two teams can’t be on the same page when they work separately from each other. Dev teams may simply be unaware of operational roablocks that prevent software from working as expected.
