The goal of the DevOps practice is an enabling technology that allows developers (Dev) and operations teams (Ops) members to work together more efficiently by automating deployment processes — all while keeping the customers’ data safe. But along this journey, companies face many common challenges and traps when implementing these principles, which we’ll explore here.
The DevOps Team
The central idea behind DevOps is that there should be more collaboration and shared ownership between existing teams. Companies often struggle with adopting these practices because they create new silos and do not bring different groups closer together. This makes sense only when you think how much more efficiently something can be accomplished if everyone works towards achieving shared goals rather than having separate teams doing their own thing without any communication whatsoever.
