According to the 'Digital Business Transformation Monitor 2022' survey conducted by KPMG, more than half of companies in Poland see the potential of digital transformation. The cloud is the most popular digital technology implemented by Polish companies.
Moving infrastructure to the cloud is becoming an indispensable step on the road to corporate digitalisation and a factor that builds our strong position against competitors who, as we all know, do not sleep. However, the process of implementing and managing the cloud itself requires professional support and a well-thought-out strategy.
The key to a company's successful digital transformation is close cooperation between IT and business, which should be based on a mutual understanding of goals. And this is where DevOps comes in - a methodology that allows digital technologies to be implemented faster, more efficiently and, above all, in line with the business expectations of the enterprise. Based on the experience of The Codest, DevOps, combined with cloud technology, is the catalyst for successful digital transformation.
What is DevOps?
DevOps combines two terms: development and operations, becoming an innovative methodology. It denotes a holistic approach that integrates multiple competences (and, therefore, several jobs) necessary for a smooth digital transformation. Under DevOps, we have both project oversight and certainty that each stage of the project work is ‘taken care of.’ As a result, the customer receives a final product, e.g. a cloud application, which is overseen from start to finish by a single, close-knit DevOps team.
What does DevOps offer?
DevOps combined with the cloud is the key to successful enterprise digital transformation. Why?
A close-knit, effective project team
DevOps teams are distinguished by smooth internal communication and a collaborative model developed on the basis of predetermined procedures and constant feedback. This translates, above all, into effective work on the design and implementation of products and services. In such a team, the key is the awareness that everyone is playing in the same team and that the actions of individuals are closely interdependent, which influences the success of the end result.
Getting to the finish line faster
“Time is money” is a slogan that perfectly illustrates today’s market demands and the qualities that determine winning with the competition. Working with DevOps means getting products to the market faster. In this context, in addition to the smooth delivery of the product, an important aspect it retained – thanks to the combined forces of DevOps – the product’s high quality.
Process automation and security
Working with DevOps-based cloud technology also means that processes are fully automated as well as repeatable. This not only speeds up the work, but also eliminates the number of errors and incidents. It also improves the security controls implemented at the very beginning of the project.
Another element related to both process automation and acceleration of work in the cloud with DevOps support is cost reduction. This includes costs associated with the operation of IT teams and operational expenses. As a company, you do not have to worry about data loss. Moreover, you can optimise our package at any time with the support of administrators.
Equally important is scalability. One of the main reasons organisations look to cloud computing is – in the first instance – its scalability, which allows organisations to increase their capacities with one click. This high degree of flexibility reflects, in a positive context, on business productivity.
