What is DevOps?
DevOps refers to a methodology that is based on a number of philosophies, tools, and practices. They all work together to improve organizations’ ability to develop, test, and deploy applications and web services at high speed. DevOps allows companies to launch products at a much higher pace than organizations using a more traditional approach.
A DevOps approach includes breaking down silos between the development teams and operations teams. In some companies, those teams even merge into one to allow engineers to get engaged in the entire application lifecycle–from development to deployment and beyond.
DevOps Cloud and ecommerce
Today, customers can access ecommerce sites from many places, such as laptops, mobiles, tablets, and interactive displays. The devices are all different in size, require different resolutions, and differ in many other ways.
At the same time, customers expect a consistent, smooth, and seamless process regardless of what channel they’re using to interact with your brand. Add to this the fact that the content is constantly changing, and you begin to grasp the complexity developers are faced with in ecommerce. Luckily, DevOps provides us with a practical methodology for meeting these challenges.
