DevOps describes a culture and set of processes that bring development and operations teams together to complete software development. It allows organizations to create and improve products at a faster pace than they can with traditional software development approaches. It is a combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity.
With a combined development and operations team, applications are ready for use much more quickly. This is important since companies succeed based on their ability to innovate faster than their competitors do.
Increased efficiency helps to speed the development process and make it less prone to error. Continuous integration servers automate the process of testing code, reducing the amount of manual work required.
All of the DevOps benefits translate to reduced overall costs and IT headcount requirements. DevOps development teams require 35 percent less IT staff and 30 percent lower IT costs.
PWSLab continuous integration produces lots of data about the mobile application, regressions, and compatibility of each developer’s contribution, and discovering issues at an early stage, and makes better time consumption and schedule estimating easier and more accurate.
Organizations use PWSLab version control, source code management (SCM), practices for merging code and notifying everyone about the build status. Branching needs to go inline with the entire development team and the same procedures must be used by all contributors.
Continuous testing basically means testing each regression, build, and continuously practice this throughout the development lifecycle. Early testing, validation, and frequent testing ensure the quality of the application and issues associated with it can be tackled using PWSLab.
The packaging step includes tools for package repositories and other storage mechanisms for the binaries created in the build step. This step clearly supports the goal of continuous deployment to package and release new versions of applications (with new features) to end-users.
PWSLab helps in packaging and deploying an application from development to production. It allows organizations to plan and execute releases, provide a single collaboration portal for all stakeholders in a release and provide traceability for its components.
PWSLab continuous monitoring provides data and metrics to organizations to evaluate all different functions of the process: development, operations, testing/QA, personnel and other individuals involved in the process and it should be measured in the process itself.
