    Why DevOps

    Main principles of DevOps

    A key culture for Devops is to support team collaboration. Everyone works on a common goal, shares ideas and problems, gets feedback, supports improvement.

    Measurement , metrics, and monitoring - works with the idea of "what you don't measure, you can't control" and "what you don't control, you can't improve." Lean principles are systematically applied to eliminate waste. The emphasis is on automation , which is supported by all processes and tools. 

    The following main principles apply during all activities:

    • Make the most of automation
    • Emphasize continuous improvement
    • Focus all activities on the customer
    • Keep in mind the goal to be achieved
    • Have responsibility for the complete process from start to finish
    • Work in autonomous teams composed of experts with different expertise

    What problems does DevOps solve?

    • IT is constantly overloaded. Requirements accumulate here, the effort to solve them all. But it is not always clear what and why is a priority. It is also difficult to find out what the status of projects is.
    • Capacities are insufficient, people are being withdrawn from projects for other work. There is a lack of a clear overview of who is ever working on what, the same person is awarded contracts and incidents.
    • Deadlines and SLAs are not met, promises made to customers are not kept. Deployment in production is delayed, which all negatively affects the business.
    • There is little time for testing, pushing for quick deployment in production. Products are not tested continuously, so they often have to be remade.
    • If you also face these problems, then DevOps is exactly what your business needs. It will give you guidance and practical advice on how to proceed in these situations, and will teach you how to prevent them in the future.

    Three ways according to DevOps

    First roadmap: Workflow
    • Movement from left to right, from development to operation and further to the customer
    • IT is a value chain in which value-adding activities are performed
    • It is necessary to make sure that the flow is smooth and that there are no faults or errors "downstream"
    Second roadmap: Feedback
    • Move from right to left
    • The value string can only be optimized with feedback included
    • Monitor problem areas, work with feedback, respond to it immediately
    The third roadmap: Experimentation
    • Inclusion of continuous learning
    • Improvements and improvements cannot be made without the possibility of mistakes
    • Continuously test and modify products, work with risks and lessons learned / failures, repetition and practice as a necessary condition for improvement
