At Flickr, the video- and photo-sharing website, the live software platform is updated at least 10 times a day. Flickr accomplishes this through an automated testing cycle that includes comprehensive unit testing and integration testing at all levels of the software stack in a realistic staging environment. If the code passes, it is then tagged, released, built, and pushed into production.
This type of lean organization, where software is delivered on a continuous basis, is exactly what the agile founders envisioned when crafting their manifesto: a nimble, streamlined process for developing and deploying software into the hands of users while continuously integrating feedback and new requirements. A key to Flickr's prolific deployment is DevOps, a software development concept that literally and figuratively blends development and operations staff and tools in response to the increasing need for interoperability.
DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increase an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. This speed enables organizations to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the market.
According to Forrester Research, it is estimated that 63% of enterprises have implemented DevOps in some form.
According to Gartner, IT-related initiatives are No. 2 in priority for even CEOs behind growth, the highest ever since Gartner began their survey. Initiatives like DevOps that balance agility and risk really grease the skids.
