Enable Agile and Support Collaboration
DevOps emphasizes the ability for all stakeholders to work seamlessly together on a project. However, if teams are geographically dispersed or are still leveraging traditional development processes, it will lessen the chances of DevOps success. These barriers between development and operations will result in inconsistent release practices, often causing deployment delays, unnecessary costs and application availability problems.
However, the cloud fixes this by providing resources that are accessible from anywhere. This means that teams can work on defect management and have clear oversight regarding what changes are being made in real time. Working in the cloud allows IT departments to focus on adding business-specific value, while DevOps ensures that continuous changes are delivered on top of a quality platform. Agile methods can often be a challenge to sustain, but with the right tools, it becomes significantly more manageable.
