A DevOps platform is a unified application where every part of the DevOps process — from idea creation to release — is tied together in a single tool. An open DevOps platform brings everyone involved in software creation – and every tool necessary – together at the same time, saving time and resources and ensuring faster software delivery. Using an open DevOps platform teams can iterate together and innovate faster.
On the surface, DevOps brings devs and ops together; the reality, however, is quite a bit more complex as security, testers, product managers, UX designers, finance, the legal team, and even marketing all have a hand to play when it comes to creating and releasing software. An open DevOps platform gives all of the players involved a single place to communicate, collaborate, gather data, and analyze results – there’s no more hunting around for information or being left out of the loop.
A DevOps platform also eliminates all the issues surrounding toolchain sprawl, maintenance, and integration. A platform provides a single source of truth which streamlines the technical development process dramatically.
