Welcome back to our next installation of our series on types of SDLC models.
This week’s model is DevOps.
In comparison to other SDLC models, DevOps is a relative newcomer. In order to properly launch a DevOps, your developers will need to go through a cultural shift. This is where Development integrates with Operations to form a new SDLC model.
From agile operations to development operations
When DevOps first launched, it was referred to as “agile infrastructure” or “agile operations.” This is because it is a variation of the agile and lean approaches.
- Monitor and substantiate characteristics on a continual basis
- Release system for testing and development environments
- Make sure you’re running a repeatable and reliable process
Another way you can think of DevOps is “Near Real Time” or elastic. This is because the deployment cycle is automatically deployed once developers make a change. Ideally, human intervention is limited and automation takes its place.
Technical benefits of DevOps
- When problems arise, they’re less complex to repair
- Problems are fixed more quickly
- Software delivery is on a continuous cycle
Business benefits of DevOps
- Features are delivered quickly
- Operating environments are more stable
- Extra time to add value
