Accelerating Business Transformation with
Server Infrastructure Optimized for DevOps
Business and IT leaders realize that a modern technology infrastructure is the foundation for their business and creates an opportunity for revenue growth by bringing innovation to market faster. Expanded revenue opportunities include faster products and service development, agile and optimized business operations, and enhanced customer engagement. Leaders are asking their teams to embrace modern application development and life-cycle practices (such as Agile and DevOps), increase collaboration and process integrations, and increase reliance on key business performance indicators (KPIs) to gauge and measure outcomes.
Agile and DevOps practices enable application developers to accelerate their pace of software development. DevOps also enables closer collaboration between developers and IT infrastructure and operations (I&O) teams. Organizations are also adopting modern operational processes and methodologies (such as AIOps) to optimize infrastructure operations through data-driven, intelligent operations.
Agile software development utilizes the collaborative effort of self-organizing and cross-functional teams for developing requirements and solutions. It is designed to be adaptive and relies on continual improvement and flexibility to accelerate development to delivery outcomes. DevOps, on the other hand, is a set of practices that combines software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops). It is designed to shorten the system development life cycle and provide continuous delivery. DevOps complements Agile software development. Artificial intelligence for IT operations (also known as AIOps) is an umbrella term for the use of big data analytics, machine learning (ML), and other artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to automate the identification and resolution of common IT issues.
