DevOps and Agile Methodologies

The Advantages of DevOps and Agile Methodologies

User expectations of ever-available application services are changing the way developers work. The articles that make up the service analyze the characteristics of the Agile and DevOps methodologies

Many articles that retrace over time how companies have gradually gained awareness of the importance of adopting Agile and DevOps methodologies for software development. The latter help companies that have embarked on their transformation path to benefit from market solicitations and to be dynamic in building their strategy.

Specifically, the selection of texts identifies the steps to be taken to achieve that cultural and organizational change useful for implementing CI / CD – Continuous integration / Continuous deploy processes that ensure speed and quality in the service offer.

In the article Agile transformation: how the way of working to face digital transformation changes, following the enunciation of the Agile Manifesto, the principles that underlie agile software development are specifically listed. These are valuable suggestions that actually lead to the possibility of placing business agility as the foundation of a new organizational form.

A brief guide entitled What does DevOps mean and why it is a fundamental part of programming today is dedicated in particular to DevOps. The text explores the technologies that support this development methodology (with particular reference to Cloud, automation and open source) and to identify the advantages it generates within organizations.

Agile and Devops to Ensure Rapid and Flexible Application Development

Users’ expectations of always available application services are changing the way developers work: there is a tendency to write less and less code ‘from scratch’ by concentrating resources on ‘composition’ of service packages (where the code is used to bind these packages together); the entire application design is developed today so that it can be easily replaced, in the future, according to the new needs of consumers. It is not possible to operate in this logic without having methodological frameworks such as Agile and DevOps as the basis.

What Are the Benefits of Modernizing Mainframe Applications?

Agile methodology for application development: what are the benefits and how to solve the critical issues A path that is still uphill is that of application development from an Agile perspective; although in many realities good levels of maturity have been reached both from the point of view of the organization and in reference to the practices in use, there is still a lot to do to achieve the expected benefits, especially on the testing front.

IT less complex. The complexity of IT structures and infrastructures has fueled inter-organizational conflicts in recent years, impoverishing IT service delivery. However, this situation is no longer sustainable compared to the economic context in which the companies ‘served’ by IT operate in search of greater flexibility, dynamism and speed of response, without however losing quality and safety. That’s why the DevOps methodology that aims to improve IT service management is growing and evolving.

Methodology. The DevOps methodology does not have a start and end date. Although it may be the answer to many of the business problems in terms of competitiveness as well, its ‘implementation’ must become pervasive in every business and technology initiative, to become simply the standard for IT and business. A ‘tending’ scenario, given that today the evolutionary picture is still decidedly complex.

Companies try to build an ecosystem of value around “connected” products; hand in hand, digital transformation is laying the foundations for a new generation of software: the Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) needed to thrive in this collaborative environment. At the same time, customer expectations for original, high-quality services require IT departments to rethink how they develop, test, and deploy software. An answer comes from Agile Parallel development.
