Sometimes you climb the ladder only to find it’s standing against the wrong wall. The hand-off of network operations from vendor to customer is still, on average, siloed and ill-prepared. NetOps catch what comes over the DevOps wall and then have to run it. At this point, NetOps has to begin re-architecting and spending weeks toiling and troubleshooting, trying to uphold availability with IT triaging issues and having blame fall to the fastest and lowest common denominator, the network. With this (unfortunately) common experience, surely NetOps is where the emphasis on automation is needed most, to evolve from automatable to automated.
Automation, Efficiency, Reliability
Smaller, more frequent deployments lead to higher performing teams and companies.
Quicker integration of vendor systems, especially software upgrades and patches.
Deliver in smaller payloads on a faster cadence, solving the problem of long lead time for features and fixes.
For engineers, DevNetOps reduces stress (deployment anxiety) and boosts job satisfaction.
How it helps: reduces lead time between development and deployment, and teams work in shorter, faster cycles with smaller deployment change deliverables. The DevNetOps pipeline automates the progress between engineering changes and production deployments.
