8 Stages of DevOps Process Flow

8 Stages of DevOps Process Flow
date_range - 7 months ago

The term DevOps Process Flow refers to the continuous momentum achieved by a dynamic team using a blended functional pipeline activity.

Solution architects, programmers, and testers, as well as other key positions, will often make up the team. A successful DevOps project has eight steps.

1st stage - Planning

Planning is essential to gain a clear picture of intentions from the start. This way, you determine what to provide, perceive benefits, recognize the required resources, and how and when you can achieve the advantages. Benefits are the overall intended goals for your target delivery.

To ensure that everyone is only engaged in activities that add value and bring you closer to reaching those aims, it's critical to have a focus on priorities and end results. DevOps is built on a continuous value-add momentum, which helps eliminate squandered time, delays, and underutilized resources. Close contact promotes shared awareness and comprehension. These two factors alone help save money and time while producing a higher quality outcome.

It's crucial to create a high-level roadmap to obtain a sense of the schedule and goals. This method provides an overview of progress in accordance with the plan and guides you for future planning. It's an efficient way of communicating timeline targets and expectations.

2nd stage - Coding

The coding stage is particularly thrilling because it is where the first components of the work are created.

The following points are critical to progressing the delivery and supporting a common degree of awareness, consistency, and understanding of the build state:

  • Daily stand-ups
  • Collaborative sharing of ideas
  • Airing of issues and problem solving

The test function in this step helps you:

  • Get a better understanding of what is being built
  • Realize the technological obstacles that you could face
  • Understand how you can prepare code for further testing

3rd stage - Building

Building is where the next exciting developments take place, and where the first draft of the product is made available. This can be shared in a variety of ways for various types of reviews by a subset of individuals at the same time.

With this approach, user/technical/non-technical peer reviews can identify a wide range of issues early in the process, saving money and time while generating a higher quality product. It's necessary to take test data and environments into consideration in which you can test the created solution.

4th stage - Testing

Once we have code in the testing environment, we may run a series of manual and automated tests to detect issues such as code bugs, anomalies, quality measures, design, or system behaviour expectations.

This section investigates the code version that has been deployed to a shared staging area known as an environment. The environment is a restricted-access area where work in progress and draft coding can be explored.

5th stage - Releasing

The produced code, as well as the actions from the pre and post activities, are sent to a production environment during the ‘release stage.' Developers can use technology to limit the distribution so that just a subset of individuals, systems, and places receive the updated codebase.

If necessary, we can hide certain features and establish a staggered delivery where restricted functions can exist and be used alongside new features. If some features aren’t ready, they can be concealed from the display so they can’t be accessed until they are.

The release team decides how and when to release builds into production. Release notes, operational documentation, and release-related documentation are prepared and sent to the intended audience and user community.

6th stage - Deploying

The sixth stage, Deploy, is where the entire code is released into production and distributed to all users. For successful DevOps operations, cost savings begin to be realized after a certain amount of time.

7th stage - Managing

This is the stage at which the software products are used in a real-world business setting. Usage is managed, and resources are available to address any operational concerns, technical system, or network-related difficulties.

Data is collected to better understand real-world trends, usage, customer and system behaviour, and to provide feedback and follow-up as needed.

8th stage - Monitoring

This is a critical step for fine-tuning the DevOps process through monitoring and feedback channels. The main goals of DevOps are to deliver higher-quality code faster as a team effort through:

  • Collaboration
  • Understanding objectives
  • Sharing ideas / queries / blockers / expectations
  • Working in parallel

Testing is an important activity because it guarantees that quality criteria are satisfied and that the user experience is prioritized at all times.

This is easier to achieve in DevOps because issues are shared and more individuals can propose solutions. Work packets can be juggled in response to known blocks and delays, as well as reprioritization, and so on.

Because of the frequent progress of daily stand-ups, we can expect replies considerably more rapidly as a result of close-knit teamwork.

Conclusion

Because the DevOps process flow is continuous, the product can evolve until it is no longer required or outdated. The method, on the other hand, lives on, and as it is developed, it can be applied to various things.
