What is Dev Ops?

Dev Ops comes from the union of the terms Development and Operations, and represents a methodology for designing and developing software, based on new working logics, on the union and collaboration of people, processes and available technologies, with the aim of offering customers increasing value over time.
In this article, we will focus on the characteristics, methodology and functionalities offered by Dev Ops.

What is meant by Dev Ops?

Dev Ops is a set of innovative activities that make it possible to streamline the software production chain, in full compliance with the Lean Management logic that underlies it. Dev Ops makes it possible to automate software release operations, thus offering developers increasingly efficient applications that are available more quickly.

Through the Dev Ops methodology, previously 'isolated' roles and activities dialogue and collaborate with each other, with the aim of offering better products and services to end customers. The different teams involved in software development, from IT operations to quality control and security, can coordinate and work more efficiently, achieving better results and increasing their performance levels.

Dev Ops methodology

The potential of Dev Ops lies in the working methodology it offers. In fact, an environment that adopts this productive approach refers to "agile" development methodologies in full "Lean Management" logic. The focus of this latter logic is to offer the customer functional and quality software in a short time and more frequently.

This working methodology is based on several steps:

  1. Analysis: definition of the business plan, objectives and functions the software should have
  2. Design: defining the structure, architecture and characteristics of individual modules
  3. Coding: compilation of programming code
  4. Technical testing: preliminary testing of software according to initial specifications
  5. System test: verification of the programme after activation on the infrastructure
  6. Integration testing: testing the compatibility of the software with other software in order to integrate with it
  7. Functionality testing: testing of software operability from the end user's point of view
  8. Final review: final check of code and verification of adequacy of performance
  9. Release: after successful completion of the previous checks, the software is ready for release and distribution according to the licences used
  10. Updates and patches: the development process does not end with the release of the software, but continues over time with new updates and the implementation of recurring security patches.

What is Azure Dev Ops for?

Microsoft Azure is the cloud computing platform developed and offered by Microsoft, offering a range of cloud services such as computing, analytics, connectivity and data storage.
Azure Dev Ops, on the other hand, refers to the development services offered by Microsoft to support teams developing new software.
Azure Dev Ops therefore provides organisations and developers with a wide range of services, processes and project management tools that are essential in the development of the new application.

This platform is primarily used to help companies manage demanding projects that require a great deal of organisational capacity. Using Azure Dev Ops therefore means being able to create products of increasing quality, which can be improved and updated over time.
