This article takes a look at DevOps under the hood, with a deep dive into the use of Internal Developer Platforms to improve self-service and developer workflow.
The last decade has seen an acceleration of software technology such as progressive web apps, cloud computing, and APIs. This has led to fundamental changes in software engineering roles, teams, tools, and processes. As teams have shifted from monoliths to microservices and seek to streamline and automate processes for speed, continuous delivery, competitive advantage, and satisfied end-users, developers are reconfiguring not only their workflow but their workplace. An example of this is the use of Internal Developer Platforms (IDPs).
Evan Bottcher, Head of Engineering at ThoughtWorks Australia defines an IDP as:
"A foundation of self-service APIs, tools, services, knowledge, and support which are arranged as a compelling internal product. Autonomous delivery teams can make use of the platform to deliver product features at a higher pace, with reduced coordination."
DevOps and Cloud computing are joined at the hip, now that fact is well appreciated by the organizations that engaged in SaaS cloud and developed applications in the Cloud. During the COVID crisis period, most of the organizations have started using cloud computing services and implementing a cloud-first strategy to establish their remote operations. Similarly, the extended DevOps strategy will make the development process more agile with automated test cases.

What is DevOps? What are the goals it helps achieves? What are its benefits? This article has answers!
The year 2020 has arrived, and its arrival brings a lot of innovations and transformations in the Information and Technology (IT) sector to DevOps technologies.
DevOps is supposed to help streamline the process of taking code changes and getting them to production for users to enjoy. But what exactly does it mean for the process to be "streamlined"? One way to answer this is to start measuring metrics.
