There are five core areas to our DevOps approach at Assemblysoft that, when combined result in minimum effort for maximum value, delivering safely, early and often.
DevOps brings benefits across the development, delivery and operations life cycle, but adoption carries real risks if businesses view it simply as a technology solution and ignore the people aspects. Without leadership, collaboration and internal buy-in, DevOps can even prove counterproductive, by slowing down processes, stifling innovation, creating siloes and building products that don’t respond to market needs.
When the right behaviours become second nature across the business, DevOps will greatly contribute to creating an agile, value driven culture that can adapt to the rapidly-changing world around you.
At Assemblysoft our DevOps approach, having utilised Micosoft Azure and Azure DevOps from it's inception in the real world, along with a rich portfolio of engineering services can provide both capability and capacity to your business enabling agility and speed that you can pass onto your customers.
The term DevOps is a combination of two terms: development (Dev) and operations (Ops). This term was created as a way of combining software engineering, operations culture, and practices to unify software development and software operations. The primary goal of DevOps is to strongly integrate automation and monitoring at all steps of the software development life cycle (SDLC), from integration, testing, releasing, to deployment and infrastructure management. DevOps aims to shorten development cycles, increase deployment frequency, and add quality with dependable releases, all in close alignment with business objectives.

Consider Azure DevOps and CI/CD processes for:
The data flows through the scenario as follows:
The need for DevOps has grown out of the increasing success of Agile software development, which has led to organisations, just like yours, realising the need for releasing applications and services more rapidly and at higher velocity. As companies seek to overcome the constraints put on their release management processes, it becomes clear there is a real need to adopt processes that can support application release automation, continuous integration (CI) tools, and continuous delivery (CD).Let's talk about DevOps
