DevOps: Enhance your Potential with DigitalCook


The term “DevOps” represents the combination of practices, tools, and resources that enable companies to build and develop applications and solutions in a fast manner.

This enables businesses to develop and enhance their products at a faster pace than companies using traditional development tools and old infrastructure management solutions.

With the DevOps strategy, organizations can better meet their customers expectations and gain a competitive advantage over other businesses.

What is Managed DevOps ?

All elements of the IT system can be delivered as a service. This includes infrastructure setup and maintenance, data backup, disaster recovery, and many other IT services. DigitalCook delivers all these services and more as part of its comprehensive managed service model. Our services also cover managed DevOps or DevOps outsourcing.

We handle the infrastructure setup, maintenance, and related fees, while our customers benefit from the services. We provide you with the needed talent, resources, and tools so you can solely focus on your business objectives.

Your IT professionals are already overloaded just trying to keep track of all their current responsibilities. Many companies don’t have time to build their DevOps expertise. In addition, hiring DevOps professionals is difficult and expensive due to high demand and low availability.

Even if you can build up the know-how of DevOps in-house, there are still challenges. Among these obstacles, we can mention:

Streamlining DevOps use for app development by ensuring team members are familiar with and able to leverage the various tools provided by platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

This is where the DigitalCook team comes in. We provide you with the needed expertise so you can handle your operations seamlessly and focus on your core business.

What are Our DevOps Practices at DigitalCook?

DevOps practices reflect a mindset of continuous improvement and automation. Our practices at DigitalCook Global practices consist of the development of one step of the development cycle or more. Our practices at DigitalCook include:

  • Ongoing development: The process of planning and coding. This is an integral part of the development cycle.
  • Continuous testing: This practice includes automated, pre-scheduled, ongoing code testing as application code is created or updated. Such tests can speed code delivery to production.
  • Continuous Integration (CI): This practice integrates configuration management and other testing and development tools. This enables the tracking of code readiness. This involves gaining instant feedback in the testing phase.
  • Continuous delivery: This approach automates the deployment of post-test code changes to pre-production or staging environments. Employees can decide to push such code changes to production.
  • Continuous Delivery (CD): This practice enables the automation of the release process. A continuous deployment company may release code or feature changes multiple times a day. Container technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes enable continuous delivery by maintaining code consistency across different delivery platforms and environments.
  • Continuous monitoring: The monitoring of the infrastructure and the code. Then the feedback loop of reporting bugs and issues goes back to development.
  • Infrastructure as code: This technique is used in multiple DevOps phases. It enables the automation of the deployment process. Developers can use current development resources and solutions to add infrastructure code. For example, developers can create Docker, Kubernetes, or OpenShift storage volumes on demand. This practice enables the monitoring of environment configurations and change tracking.

Why was the DevOps approach created?

DevOps Advocate & Practitioner: The rise of Agile methodologies in the early 2000s changed the way software and other products are developed. However, within a few years of becoming an industry standard, a serious oversight occurred. This revolution disregarded the processes and requirements of operations teams deploying and managing software products.

The solution was the DevOps approach. This methodology aligns development and operations teams. The resulting question was: has DevOps replaced Agile or are they complementary to each other? You can see that there are both differences and similarities between the two. Agile and DevOps are both exclusive and inclusive, and both exist within organizations.

What is The Agile Methodology?

Agile is a project management and software development approach with an iterative feature. The agile methodology includes an emphasis on collaboration, customer feedback, and rapid release. It emerged from the software development industry in the early 2000s to help development staff respond to changing market demands and customer requirements. Agile approaches do some planning and design at first. However, development happens in small batches and requires close collaboration with stakeholders. Changes are continuously implemented, and usable versions of products are often released sooner than products developed using the waterfall approach. This has many advantages, perhaps most importantly, being able to modify the software in real time if it does not meet the customer's needs or expectations. Agile is a collection of methods, including Scrum, Extreme Programming (XP), and other methods of software development that developers have used in the past. The result of this integrated effort is the Agile Manifesto, a set of 12 principles that relies on four core values.

What is The Agile and DevOps Combination?

DevOps can be viewed as an evolution of agile practices or as a missing piece of agile. This is an attempt to apply the agile approach’s innovative standards to operational processes. At the same time, it is also a missing piece, as certain Agility principles are fully realized only when DevOps practices are applied. For example, continuous delivery of software includes many references in the Agile documentation, but continuous delivery is usually considered a DevOps practice because deployment pipelines involve operational issues. To strengthen the feedback loop, you need better communication between teams. Agile, especially Scrum, helps facilitate this communication through multiple practices such as daily standups, regular meetings, and retrospectives.

What are the Similarities and Differences Between Agile and DevOps?

Collaboration between developers and product management is emphasized in the Agile approach. On the other hand, DevOps relies on the operations teams. The Agile methodology focuses on the software flow from ideation to code completion, while DevOps focuses on delivery as well as maintenance. The Agile approach relies on iterative development and small batches, while DevOps focuses on testing and deployment automation. Agile adds structure to developers' planned work. However, DevOps integrates common unplanned work into operations teams. The Agile Manifesto clearly prioritizes people and interactions, fully-functional software, collaborating with customers, and meeting expectations. These priorities are similar with the DevOps priorities.  However, they extend beyond the development process to managing systems and running applications. Additionally, the 12 Principles of Agile Software contain references to DevOps principles. For example, the 12 Principles of Agile Software focus on continuous integration and delivery, working in small batches with frequent releases, and using automation.
