The DevOps approach has increased in popularity among software teams to move ahead in a competitive market and efficiently deliver innovative products. If you’ve already read The Phoenix Project, you have some idea of how the transition from Ops to DevOps looks like, in this case, when an American tech company decides to do it.
Today, many companies decide to go down this road. Software teams believe that DevOps can save them a lot of effort and allow them to focus on the actual product. Why is this? What are the benefits of moving from Ops to DevOps? Well, first things first.
DevOps is a set of practices that encourages an agile mindset to improve the software delivery process’s speed and quality. In previous methodologies, such as waterfall, development, and operations teams were considered separate, each with their given tasks and responsible for only one part of the delivery process. With this model, the development and operations teams are regarded as interdependent across the entire software application life cycle, working closely together.
Before DevOps, traditional models involve a flow of a defined set of phases where the output of one stage is the next step’s input. This makes all phases dependent on each other, making delivering new features and fixing bugs take longer and be more costly.
The key elements of DevOps key elements are collaboration, automation, continuous integration, continuous delivery, testing, and monitoring.

One of the most significant benefits of DevOps is that it provides short and fast feedback loops. This enables businesses to quickly identify their mistakes and understand what their customers want and need. It also allows them to ship features really fast. Furthermore, it leads to greater efficiency and better software.
Another benefit of DevOps is delivering more quality products and fewer failures. One of the key ways to determine the software’s quality is the number of defects in it. According to a survey conducted by CA Technologies, adopting DevOps and Agile methodologies has a tremendous positive impact, improving the quality of development processes (number of defects) by 41%. Surely enough, the collaboration between development and operations teams has a lot to do with improving the quality of a product.
