DevOps and how to ensure better communication

Posted by Strypes on Feb 3, 2020 10:10:43 AM


The role of DevOps is to bridge the gap between the development and the operations teams. In the past, the structure of software development companies was split into these two departments, and that created some issues in the long run. When the development team wanted to deliver features, they wanted to deliver as many and as fast as possible.

There was this constant conflict and this is where DevOps came in as a solution to ensure better collaboration by using a unified approach to software delivery.

We help our clients assess the work that needs to be done and then develop a solution to modernise their application.
