Introduction to DevOps

Software development time has always been a key factor in the software industry since every trial and error affects greatly if a product is ready for the client in an optimal way. Modern software consumption demands are such that software is always maintained “fresh” with the latest updates and cybersecurity fixes. All this time translates into losses or earnings for a business as well as potential cybersecurity concerns.

The time delays in software development are mainly caused by the obstacles that exist between two areas: development and operations. Both, work hand in hand, but each one values their own priorities: on one hand, quick pace, innovation and change are valued, while on the other hand code quality, stability, correct implementation and optimization are greatly sought.

In this sense, the concept of DevOps (the combination of Development and Operations) has revolutionized IT teams and has broken down an invisible barrier in order to work bidirectionally and collaboratively with effective communication.

  • Anyone interested to understand IT software lifecycle management, How modern enterprise software is maintained and secured.
  • Technical product managers, Technical Product Marketing professionals, Technical Strategy Officials, C-Level decision makers & Executives, Regulators, in any industry that is related to dealing with software.

DevOps teaches you how to use the combination of DevOps philosophies, practices and tools to develop, deploy, and maintain applications in a modern way. Benefits of adopting DevOps include: rapid delivery, reliability, scalability, security and improved collaboration.

  • Understanding of the advantages of automating processes in software development
  • Implementation of continuous integration and continuous delivery methodologies (CI/CD).
  • Structure to create applications in containers.
  • Design, deployment and maintenance of the automation process in software developmen
  • Agile creation of a secure, reliable and production ready software product.
  • DevOps security and testing fundamental
  • How modern telecom infrastructure are working and delivered using CI/CD
