Development & Operations.
What is DevOps?
DevOps (development and operations) is an approach to software development and delivery that emphasises collaboration and communication between software developers (Dev) and IT operations (Ops) teams, along with automation of the software delivery and infrastructure changes. Its primary aim is to establish a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen rapidly and reliably.
Introducing DevOps to the company’s everyday operations brings indisputable benefits. It can help your business release products faster while maintaining high quality and shorter time to market.
How does DevOps methodology work?
Continuous integration (CI)
Continuous deployment (CD)
Infrastructure as code approach (IaC) (with tools like AWS CloudFormation or Azure Resource Manager)
The role of DevOps
It aims to stimulate collaboration and innovation throughout software development by educating and supporting employees across different IT areas.
It enables utilising typical methods to achieve goals easily, quicker, safer, and using resources more effectively.
DevOps also aligns with Agile assumptions by introducing an iterative work model. Which means multiple iterations and releasing the product as early as possible. An essential part of it is the automation of the processes, for example, those requiring tedious and repetitive manual work. The fundamental principles of DevOps include:
- Customer-centric actions
- End-to-end responsibility
- Continuous integration
- Continuous improvement
Why should you consider
introducing DevOps to your business?
Saving money: development and operations methodology can significantly cut the development cost by automating specific tasks.
Saving time and resources: due to streamlining and automation of tasks, the number of developers and time required to develop the product can be cut by over half.
Faster deployment and delivery: companies can cut their delivery time and recover from failures more efficiently, reducing potential risks of failing at any stage.
Improved work culture and customer value: DevOps culture can reduce unplanned work and rework by 22%. It can bring real value to the customer and build up employee satisfaction.

Enhancing DevOps with deep tech: AIOps and MLOps.
With significant technological advancements came artificial intelligence and machine learning. Integrating these technologies into different aspects of work and business processes has become a goal for many companies. With AIOps and MLOps, we can use predictive analytics to locate, examine, and create data. They can help enhance operational efficiency on multiple levels.
It combines machine efficiency, accuracy, and scalability with a human touch. Using big data analytics and advanced machine learning methods aids in optimising IT operations, including but not limited to automation, monitoring, event correlation, cause determination, anomaly detection, service desk, and more.
Why is it important? AI technologies can change operations processes and require sophisticated interpretation from different data sources. With the growing complexity of tasks and operations, AI techniques can help us manage and understand many new methods.
Machine learning operations aim to deploy and sustain ML models in the workflow processes with reliability and efficiency. MLOps can help us keep track of tweaked parameters and debug machine learning model(s) operation ML lifecycle. Utilising MLOps can also help adapt to real-time changes in data. Machine learning operations can play a significant role in businesses by increasing efficiency. Efficient model deployments can help significantly improve the functions and boost business processes.
