The process of manually deploying software is often problematic, resulting in lengthy delays in making software available to users. The processes involved are dull, repetitive and ill-suited to being performed by humans, leading to mistakes and inconsistencies due to the monotony of the work. Quality is therefore impacted as inconsistent environments result in unpredictable outcomes.
DevOpsGroup Automate Services
DevOpsGroup Automate services free our clients’ staff from performing boring, mind-numbing work. By using machines to conduct these tasks in a consistent fashion, the mistakes and anomalies that human beings typically make are eliminated. As this burden of work is removed from staff members, they can then focus on more creative work that increases their job satisfaction and adds real value to the organisation. There is also a significant speed advantage as automated processes are much faster than their manual counterparts.
By automating much of the software deployment process, the resulting ease and reliability inspires the confidence to release frequently. This allows for continuous feedback to be rapidly incorporated into future releases and for software development to be truly Agile.
