As an IT provider, it’s your role to understand the requirements of your clients and ensure you are offering the best solution to suit their unique business environment and needs. This responsibility is important as many of your clients rely on you to deliver quality, reliable solutions that drive success and optimise regular processes in order to save the business time and money. One great example of such a tool is DevOps.
What is DevOps?
DevOps is a term for a group of concepts responsible for a technical movement that allows businesses to unite all the aspects of their business to work together seamlessly. This includes practical elements such as business processes and workflows as well as elements from within the in-house culture and leadership.
By combining these features into a single IT infrastructure, you create a more streamlined and easily manageable workload for your customers. This empowers them to work more efficiently on vital business tasks, freeing up time to work on other tasks and projects which might have otherwise been pushed to the side.
Benefits of DevOps
One of the most significant benefits of utilising DevOps in a business operations environment is the potential for faster, more efficient working. This is made possible due to the integration of operations from different users and teams, allowing engineers to carry out development, testing and deployment across the entire application lifecycle rather than working induvial on different aspects, where the potential for miscommunication can result in delayed results and inaccuracies.
This method of developers and operations teams working together results in a significantly faster delivery of services and results in a more reliable infrastructure. This is due to the automation of processes, which is made possible by DevOps, saving a significant time investment and negating the risk of human error. The resulting continuous, consistent quality helps build confidence in the platform, resulting in more driven, efficient staff and the potential to impress clients, building satisfaction.
Implementing DevOps for Customers
The improved time and data management features of a DevOps strategy are often enough to warrant a DevOps strategy for many business infrastructure, with the simple management allowing customers to easily monitor processes to assess the optimisation opportunities that DevOps has allowed for. This allows customers to easily inspect areas in which they have been able to save time and money.
On top of this, implementing a DevOps strategy for your customers makes your job easier as they experience greater communication, planning for agreed maintenance to deliver increasingly secure and reliable systems, showcasing your proactive approach to impress customers and ensure their satisfaction.
