However, they all faced challenges that are typical for established companies.
Before Supermen aka DevOps came on stage, organizations used to have separated teams that had little to no idea of what was going on at other departments.
As a result, developers would spend several months’ worth of work and pass their code on to QA. Guess what came next? Yep, bugs, bugs, and...lots of bugs.
Surely, that classic cop-out “It works fine on my computer” was a go-to for developers. As for Ops, they would get the same lame code, swallow their pride, and clean up the mess.
Luckily, we have the DevOps approach that allows companies to keep the delivery process in full gear and improve products at a supersonic speed.
However, implementing a DevOps philosophy is not enough. Only high-performing DevOps teams that have mastered some key capabilities can deliver faster, more accurately, and with less downtime. We have curated some secrets that differentiate DevOps leaders from laggards.
Finger-pointing generates gridlocks that hamper innovation. In the world of Agile workflow and SaaS products, you don’t stand a chance unless you know and use the secrets of high-performing DevOps teams.
Successful dev teams release software to production multiple times a week, whereas low-performing crews do the same closer to once a month.
High velocity is a crucial factor since it leaves more time to hypothesize, act, and get user feedback. Dev crews that deliver top-grade code regularly are able to perform on a more effective learning loop.
Big power teams tend to weave quality into all phases of the software delivery lifecycle.
High-performance teams also tend to include nonfunctional requirements into user stories during the early stages.
All too often, full-gear software delivery means partaking in side tasks.
High-performing squads are more likely to implement early UI feedback than their straggling colleagues.
Instead, they spend more time on actual, performance-changing tasks like early user feedback and the surefire hypothesis. Keeping your team in the third gear is possible if they engraft fast feedback loops loops across the development cycle.
This will ensure your teams get a leg up in the competitive tech market. Stay tuned for part 2 of our top secrets for DevOps teams.
