Both DevOps and CloudOps are based on collaborative relationships between different groups in the organization.
DevOps practices deliver continues improvements in processes that enhance collaboration which leads to enhanced visibility throughout the software delivery lifecycle (SDLC) and helps reduce incidents that can disrupt IT operations or impact development schedules.
DevOps improvements can bubble throughout the organization, helping to bring more reliable software applications to fruition faster, which leads to improved performance for the organization as a whole. Ultimately, DevOps helps improve the user experience for employee and customers alike.
CloudOps encompasses cloud platform engineering principles, combining elements of cloud architecture, IT operations, application development, security, and regulatory compliance to enable organizations to manage cloud-based applications and services.
This enables organizations to:
- Ensure the cloud platform – including hybrid and edge components – operates as a single platform
- Optimize application performance for a dispersed workforce regardless of access device
- Ensure reliability and that SLAs are met
- Maintain backups for disaster recovery and business continuity
- Automate repetitive services and configuration management
- Ensure data and applications are secure end-to-end
