By Special Guest

Nowadays, DevOps is making a significant impact across many businesses. DevOps has become a buzzword representing the professional and cultural IT movement focused on improving the production efficiency of a business. It is continuously changing the mindset of how businesses function.

Whether it is the faster delivery of product features, a more stable environment of operation, a quicker resolution of operational issues, or the prompt and steady delivery of software, DevOps can benefit the production lifecycle of any business. Not only this, but it gives a competitive advantage to a company and improves its ability to meet customer needs more quickly.

In this article, we will discuss the benefits of DevOps for small and medium scale enterprises.

Some fundamental questions of any business are:

  • How can I improve product delivery to my customers?
  • How can I change product features promptly to meet customers’ needs?
  • How can I recover after failing my customers?

All of these above-mentioned questions directly impact revenue growth, sales, profitability, and business viability. And, DevOps can impact all these factors. That’s why DevOps consulting services are on rising. Let’s see how DevOps can answer all these fundamental questions.

How can I improve product delivery to my customers?

A survey by shows that DevOps companies have 30x the deployment frequency of their non-DevOps peers. In other words, if you are not using DevOps benefits against someone who is, they can, on average, do what you do but 30 times faster. Companies that choose DevOps to improve product delivery to their customers are therefore benefiting from DevOps’ tendency to use automation as a multiplier as well as it’s a holistic view toward facilitating the collaboration of teams.

How can I change product features promptly to meet customers’ needs?

Companies that adopt the best practices of DevOps have some advantages when it comes to promptly changing products to meet the specific needs of customers. According to the survey, DevOps-enhanced businesses have about 200x faster lead time over their non-practicing competitors.

How can I recover after failing my customers?

Failure is a part of business. After embracing the notion that you will sometimes fail, you should focus on mean time to recovery (MTTR), which refers to how quickly you get back up and run after failing. DevOps-savvy companies work well here. As per the survey, on average, DevOps companies are 168 times faster at recovery from failure than their non-DevOps competitors.

What about the failures caused by changes related to configuration or application, also called “change success rate”? Here, the number of DevOps enabled companies is astounding, too. It is seen in the same survey that there is a 60x improvement rate in the change success rates.

Wrapping Up

With increasing competition in the industry, companies are opting for new and innovative ways to cater to the needs of their customers. DevOps is one such innovative culture that is revolutionizing the production of businesses. It resolves collaboration issues among development and testing teams. By opting for DevOps, businesses are able to offer better-quality products promptly and with greater reliability. If you also want to reap the benefits of DevOps, you can reach out to a DevOps consulting service for your company. These companies can help you implement DevOps features into your business effectively.
