Moving from departmental dependence to independence

In a pre-pandemic world, collaboration was as easy as walking down the hall to visit your co-worker, but for the past year, many have been robbed of this leisure. Since the break of COVID-19, there has been a significant paradigm shift in every aspect of our lives. We have had to adjust, tweak and manifest new practices and let go of our departmental dependance to foster a culture of independence.  From a technological and efficiency standpoint we have had to adapt to a new normal

Companies continue to explore the best ways to maintain employee engagement, advancements, productivity, and collaboration in the absence of previously established metrics. A very common approach to fulfill these principles, necessary to the success and growth of any organization, is DevOps (Development and Operations). 

So, what is DevOps?

DevOps is a set of practices that combines software development and IT operations. Its goal is to change and improve relationships between people, processes, and technology within an organization, to advocate for better communication and collaboration. To facilitate active interaction, DevOps bridges the gap between previously independent departments (or systems), allowing employees (or processes) to work cross-functionally with different departments in an effectively constructive way. By adopting this approach, your organization will be able to accelerate project lifecycles, increase delivery and provide consistent value to your customers. 

Though working remotely can be challenging, adopting DevOps can bring opportunities to grow and advance -wherever you are. By enabling faster delivery, better automation and collaboration, DevOps makes an enterprise software delivery ecosystem extremely efficient. It has never made more sense to use this as a fundamental resource in your business processes. As for the time being, many of us cannot simply walk down the hall for inquiries, we need to continue to embrace new systems, methods, and mindsets.

  • Increase overall productivity

  • Support a reliable delivery ecosystem = better software quality 
  • Reduce costs
