20 Most Promising DevOps Solution Providers - 2015
Today, DevOps is helping companies address the software development and delivery challenges by engaging both the operations and development teams in a single development sphere. Beyond enhanced delivery and support, DevOps provides room for innovation driven by the latest trends such as big data, cloud computing, and mobile applications and social media support.
Open source tools are crowding the DevOps landscape, attracting bigger organizations to adopt the agile practices advocated by DevOps. These practices spawn greater customer satisfaction, better communication, integration, and collaboration within the development life cycle. Although most enterprises uphold that software development and delivery are critical to profit-making, an IBM survey reveals that only 25 percent believe that their teams are effective in terms of execution and delivery. Migrating to a DevOps environment applies agile and lean practices across an organization and maximizes the speed of delivery of a product or a service, from the initial development stage, to customer feedback, to enhancements based on the feedback.
DevOps strategy has evolved over time, leading the solution providers to develop their own reliable toolkits and interfaces. Software developers can adopt these principles with a holistic DevOps approach to reap the benefits of agile development. DevOps providers are regularly updating their toolkits and APIs to support more verticals. In some cases, they are also developing tailor-made suites to service clients better. Ultimately, DevOps improves the way that a business delivers value to its customers, suppliers and partners—it can be considered as an essential business process, not just an IT capability.
