2Put Development Closer to Operations
Delivering quality software on time and on target isn’t easy. A large chunk of time is often spent troubleshooting application issues in test and production. And the resulting bottlenecks can stifle progress and innovation. With mobile, social, big data and cloud technologies driving demand for new, faster and more frequent approaches to software delivery, businesses are benefiting from an approach called DevOps that puts the development shop closer to operations to identify problems early and bring software to production more quickly.

5Transparency in Development
As the team completes development tasks, they continuously test the app’s new features and updates using automated functional and performance testing. In many cases, tests are executed in minutes, and “service virtualization” lets them test complex system dependencies and integration environments virtually, dramatically saving time and cost.
9The Invisible Thread
Software is the invisible thread weaving through the systems, services and products that make businesses run better. And when it’s developed using a DevOps approach, businesses see their costs and time to market go down, productivity and quality go up, and their staff free to focus on more important tasks.
