DevOps is a term for a group of concepts that, while not all new, have catalyzed into a movement that is rapidly spreading throughout the technical community. Like any new and popular term, people have somewhat confused and sometimes contradictory impressions of what it is.
The concept of DevOps comes from increasing the need for innovation on the systems side of technology work. It is an evolution of agile system administration. In a traditional software engineering organization, the QA group is often seen as separate from the Development group. Developers and testers have different roles, different responsibilities, different job descriptions, and different management.
Though development and QA group are two distinct entities, in a DevOps environment, these two teams work together as one to deliver a product. Companies are rapidly adopting this organizational model in order to facilitate a practice of automated software deployment. In automation, DevOps provides the structure that enables teams to push software out as a service on a weekly, or daily, or even hourly basis. The traditional concept of a “software release” melts away into a continuous cycle of service improvement.
The purpose of DevOps is to get high-quality product out to the market faster – even automatically.
The word “High -Quality” is the main aim of DevOps. If you cant reliably push high-quality and resilient software out the door, DevOps would fail as a function.
Bhavna Corporation employs the practice of operations and development teams participating together in the entire service lifecycle, from design through the development process to production support.
Bhavna follows an industry standard DevOps model including:
QA teams play a critical role in DevOps because they have direct visibility to the client. In a traditional development model, QA teams have primary responsibility to find defects/bugs. However, in a DevOps model, the roll is different since both engineering and QA teams have responsibility for preventing defects from proceeding downstream and reaching clients. The QA team owns continuous improvement and quality tracking. Bhavna teams have mature processes for automating functional testing, continuous improvement, and metric management. With the help of load testing and stress testing, QA teams provide critical support to the DevOps model of providing scalable and resilient software from the first deployment.
