Welcome DevOps, Prevent defects!

Overview

What is DevOps & Why DevOps:

Its buzzword nowadays, Right? We’re hearing everywhere either it is technical industry or nontechnical. If you wonder about it, then let me explain! Mainly it is a compound of two words: Development and Operations. In simple terms we can say that Development and Operation works better together. The purpose of the DevOps is to improve the relationship by encouraging better communication and collaboration between these two important business units. It is unifying the Development of software with the software Operations.

DevOps is killing the traditional structure! What is the reason behind that?

The traditional structure involves large number of handoffs in process which makes the overall system disorganized.

DevOps uses continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD).
In CI, developers use various continuous integration tools which integrate whole latest code into a shared storage repository multiple times each day, and DevOps engineer relies on automation to ensure the quality of the version shown as below figure.

And in CD, they are delivering continuously for feedback and reviews, which is displayed in figure below; so we can say that it is the mechanism of the continuous evolution of the software development operations.

Specifically, organization who are ready to create DevOps culture should use JIRA and ZenDesk as bug tracking tools. Test automation tools like Selenium, Cucumber, Junit, TestNG and Jmeter manage to execute the different test scenarios and measure functional efficiency.

Biggest objectives seeking in older structure are time, quality and effectiveness due to hand offs.
Let you all know about the most important 5 things which would be added to the folk skills in any Organization:

1. DevOps Missionary by the Organization management

Master of the DevOps team should be brave enough to face any failure and should keep risk management plan in mind. You have to build a culture that is a learning culture in which if you fail once then learn to prevent next hundred failures from that failure. Organization management must promote the benefits of DevOps by identifying and quantifying the business advantages that come from the greater agility DevOps delivers.

2. Release of the product

Release manager inform the management about the development of the product and providing them the proper statistics about time to next build. Release managers not only keep eyes on the final release product but also oversee the coordination, integration, flow of development, testing, and to support continuous delivery. They also make sure that there are continuous feedback from the client and make the changes accordingly.

3. Automation Everywhere

While accepting the Agile methodology it is necessary to handle the continuous changes and evaluate them. Once you have the complete automated systems, you can also get smooth environment for agile development and continuous evaluation.

By automating deployment, there are five core essential objectives that can be fulfilled by any organization.

  1. Faster to deploy
  2. Extraordinary quality
  3. Higher overall test coverage
  4. Earlier detection of defects
  5. Reduced business expenses

This business essentials give you better result and better quality of product at your predefined time, so how one can deny to use it? The one thing you have do is to gain expertise in automation methodology.

4. Software developer/tester

Any product can be successful or not is majorly dependent on its developer who develops well structured code of product. Software developer is everything in an IT firm. Software developers exhibit their skills while handling the changes in any production, if it is well structured then it will take less time and does not create any dependent issues. So the first thing to handle continuous changes is your code should be easy to modify. In DevOps, developers are not only responsible for developing but also they have to do unit testing for created code. On the other side, sometimes testers think that we can perform manual testing and still can be agile, but through that quality may suffer. How can it be possible if you have to test new build of same product everyday? Product quality can regress with that process. So it is mandatory to move on to automated quality making.

5.Project team coordinator

Project coordinator thinks that his/her role is pushing the team to match up the deadline and review the latest product build with deployment. In DevOps Project coordinator is one who working side by side with developers and testers, inserting their suggestions much earlier in the process. They review and guide for the proper solution and proposal while building the product not,at the end of the build.

By taking new responsibilities, organization can easily understand the true worth of the DevOps.

Happy Testing..!!!
