DevOps, a portmanteau of Development and Operations, encompasses the tools and practices that enhance an organization’s ability to deliver services faster than conventional processes. With security as the prime objective, DevOps assessment services in Africa have been incorporating speed, reliability, rapid delivery, and enhanced collaboration to accelerate efficient business results.
With the technological advancement and the introduction of digitization across industry verticals in Africa, security, traceability, and observability were impacted. To deal with the vulnerabilities in development, businesses opt for DevOps automation services to mitigate risk throughout the delivery lifecycle.
But how in Africa does DevOps impede security risks and help businesses achieve desired results?
DevOps is fostering a culture around web and application security in Africa by the use of tools that let developers own their services through the production cycle. With data testing solutions, software analytics and DevOps patch management, the technology cater to the most vulnerable domains of the industry. DevOps automation services also encapsulate a multitude of features such as support to deploy patches with ease. Allowing managing of virtual machine environment, providing analysis of the source code to identify issues and seamless integration for consistent testing.
DevOps Tool is an application that is helping to automate the software development process in the African continent. The technology usually focuses on the collaboration and communication that occurs between software development, product management, operations professionals. DevOps enables teams to automate most of the software development processes like build, conflict management, dependency management, deployment, etc. and helps reduce manual efforts.
It is providing an overview of the software development pipeline, help gain perspectives from both engineering and business angles, implement continuous delivery, exploring and adopts patterns and tools that support automation.
Being the direct descendent of agile software development, DevOps has taken a holistic approach in the software delivery cycle to enable entire development cycles in Africa.
Its feature of continuous development encircles the planning and coding phases of the DevOps lifecycle and incorporates prescheduled, automated, continued code tests to speed up the delivery of production code.
Another feature of continuous integration brings configuration management tools together with other test and development tools to track how much of the code being developed is ready for production. The continuous delivery practice automates the code delivery and the continuous deployment feature automates the release of changed and new code into production.
DevOps also facilitates quality assurance by incorporating quality assurance during the transition process, making quality assurance a stakeholder when reporting and using Realtime User Monitoring to detect potential problems early for predictive maintenance.
In Africa, these features have been driving businesses to automate their delivery cycle by leveraging digital transformation to deliver continuous operations and Insights across hybrid environments. It promises an end-user experience with faster application release cycles while increasing the productivity of development teams.
