DevOps is designed to break down the silos between development and operations. My real questions are how does DevOps break down the wall of confusion and what impact does that have on my application release operations?
According to a study published by the IDC (Verizon DBIR 2012, IDC, Infonetics Research), 60% of all application failures are release and configuration related. 75% of operations teams’ time is spent on release management and .15% of annual revenue is lost to outages caused by human error. DevOps, when combined with application release automation can shrink these statistics, saving your organization time and money while reducing risk and human error.
Achieving DevOps with Application Release Automation
Application Release Automation technologies directly support DevOps. The right solution enables end-to-end automation of the release process, providing the visibility and confidence to operate at an accelerated pace while reducing time-to-market and cost and increasing agility and flexibility.
