DevOps is a software development approach which involves continuous development, continuous testing, continuous integration, continuous deployment and continuous monitoring of the software throughout its development lifecycle. This is exactly the process adopted by all the top companies to develop high quality software in shorter development lifecycles resulting in greater customer satisfaction.
DevOps empowers lean agile teams who can innovate, experiment, execute, measure and achieve. And to automate where it makes sense, for reliable and repeatable outcomes. All of this in a culture of organisational learning that can be integrated into future work.
As with any major initiative, embarking on a DevOps journey without a plan, a roadmap and a defined set of outcomes can be a high risk and a high cost experience. Continuous delivery is, a term which actually predates DevOps, and it has still has a lot of connotations to different companies and different organizations based on what they’re delivering in terms of the software or the system or the service they’re delivering.
Continuous delivery is a capability which allows us to automatically deliver this software from one environment to the next in your software delivery lifecycle. The capability to on-demand continuously and, more importantly, automatically deliver this software from one environment to the next is what is known as continuous delivery.

And the reason we need this is to make this more automated and faster, but also because a lot of overhead, a lot of time is wasted by developers and other practitioners in the software delivery team, manually delivering this software-run environment to the next every week, every time they have a new version of the software with the need to deliver. And to us that is all overhead, and that can be replaced by an automated tool, which can automate it and make it seamless and they can now spend their productive time doing what they’re really paid for, which is productive work of coding or testing or doing their work and not wasting their time doing manual deployments.
As companies move forward with their cloud strategies, an effective and integrated security strategy is essential.
