How a Dev Ops Approach can make a World of Difference to your Evergreen Efforts
Many times, applications are developed in big clumps to cater to an enterprise’s immediate needs. While this may benefit a single application, it can cause multiple business units to create and maintain different applications, sometimes duplicating efforts. In other cases, an application may become so critical to the business that it goes untouched for years, causing the frameworks and underlying software to become outdated and slow. As a company’s IT becomes more and more legacy, making changes becomes costly, and moving to a microservices architecture becomes even more difficult. Adopting a DevOps approach can overcome these hurdles while helping the enterprise create an evergreen IT ready environment.
DevOps adoption can automate the Continuous Integration & Continuous Deployment process, with DevOps acting as a robust engine to drive this transformation.
Embracing a DevOps approach can modernise your organisation and introduce artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) enablement during the continuous integration cycle to ensure that your IT environment is always Evergreen.
AI can be leveraged to improve efficiency using bots, self-learning systems, and predictive systems that can better track production performance and establish links to past issues.
Continuous processes, when assisted by bots and self-learning, help to ensure the code meets modern best practices and is regularly updated to the latest version, thus reducing technical debt. AI also helps to predict errors based on previous data, to identify root causes of key issues, to find anomalies in the threats recorded in central logging systems, and to find false alerts. In addition, AI-powered bots can improve collaboration between development and operation teams, with ML-based systems prioritizing responses that require management.
By adopting a DevOps approach, companies can overcome technical hurdles, reduce their technical debt, and improve efficiencies. Embracing continuous modernisation also helps organisations build a foundation for the future, paving the way to realise scalable growth with an evergreen environment.
