DevOps Without Dev is Dead on Arrival

Software applications are often the engine of every business today. To remain competitive, businesses need to innovate and respond to change fast without compromising quality. To meet these needs, software development teams are increasingly adopting methodologies such as Agile to deliver software more frequently, and at the rapid pace demanded by the market. Building and testing these applications is one challenge, but getting them into production environments is quite another. To achieve this faster pace and deliver high quality applications, DevOps has become an increasingly popular technique for shepherding software from the design phase through development and testing all the way into production. The business value of DevOps is quite profound: DevOps reduces software delivery times, improves application quality, and enhances the productivity of the development (Dev) and operations (Ops) teams. Most importantly, DevOps reduces the complexity, errors, and risk of application deployment failures in Production, the most important stage of the Application Delivery Pipeline. In this paper, we explain what constitutes DevOps, describe what’s driving the migration towards it, and why it’s much smarter to approach DevOps from a ‘Dev-first’ attitude.
