SaaS is a Cloud distribution model which offers benefits to both vendor and their clients, such as low cost and high availability.
The design of any solution created by any supplier to any business challenge, or any development of any application for delivery to the business or a customer, will always provide us with an ‘interesting’ journey. It doesn’t have to be application development. DevOps is for all and everyone.
IT Service Management or ITSM, since its inception, has changed the way IT businesses are conducted around the world. With a set of managerial steps that aid in the planning, design, operations, and control of IT services delivered to customers, ITSM has streamlined IT businesses.
In recent times, DevOps is a buzz word. It is not a Technology. It is more of a culture or philosophy and it involves many concepts such as Continuous Integration, Continuous Testing, Configuration Management, Cloud Provisioning, Continuous Delivery, and Continuous Deployment.
DevOps tools aid in simplifying this otherwise complex process of coordinating and integrating the functions of these two teams. Many open source DevOps tools are now available to assist DevOps professionals in the continuous integration, delivery, and deployment of products.
The definition of DevOps differs from one practitioner to another. Some organizations implement DevOps as a practice, whereas others adopt it as a culture or movement. But each organization has to implement a number of changes while switching from conventional software development practices to DevOps. They further have to build an environment where all software development activities – coding, testing, deployment, and release – are integrated seamlessly into a single cycle.
