Pros and Cons of DevOps as a Service


It seems as though every component of business computing is being offered as a cloud-based service, including DevOps. The business advantages of using cloud services are obvious: You can rent computing resources rather than having to buy and manage them, and you can make changes faster since there is no on-site hardware to deal with. However, can you really outsource every aspect of business computing? Can DevOps as a Service really work? Does cloud collaboration between development and operations speed up projects, or does it mean companies lose control of business-critical applications?

What Is a Full Stack Developer Salary?

When you need customized enterprise solutions, do you tend to hire the expertise you need to develop the necessary applications or do you contract it out?

Why DevOps? What Are the Benefits of DevOps?

Just five years ago, most enterprises operated their innovation efforts in silos. Development was in one corner, working on the next big thing; operations was in the other, making sure that none of the technology stopped working.

3 DevOps Skills Your Team Must Have

 

Expanding your DevOps team can sometimes feel like defeating a demogorgon—or demodogs for that matter (R.I.P., Dart)—without Eleven. You may have a paladin, a cleric, a bard, and a ranger.

It seems like everyone is talking about DevOps these days. And for good reason. When implemented correctly, DevOps solutions bring increased development speed and business agility. But what is this concept we speak of? For starters, there’s really no such thing as a DevOps team. While this portmanteau technically combines the words “development” and “operations,” the term has become as ambiguous as the ending of Blade Runner. (Is Deckard a replicant?!
