As more and more companies switch to cloud-based solutions like Amazon Web Services, (AWS), it’s easy to see how much of a game-changer it is. However, if your company wants to leverage cloud services for all they’re worth, you’ll need to incorporate DevOps into the process. Separately, DevOps and the cloud can accelerate your software delivery, but together they can ramp up the process to previously unattainable heights.
Migrating to a cloud environment solves plenty of problems faced by companies utilizing on-premise solutions. Those problems going away can help you develop faster, assuming that your DevOps team leverages cloud-based tools and services since they can benefit intensely from the cloud. Want an added benefit? During the migration preparation, your DevOps team has the opportunity to modernize your platform.
One widely used example is the incorporation of automation for routine business operations and previously manual tasks. Cloud services also reduce the overall costs by ensuring that your business is only paying for the resources it uses which allows you to put more money into subsequent iterations of your software. That can reduce your timeline for deployment and delivery. All of this comes together to let your developers spend their time developing instead of fighting against the complex on-premise solutions.
