DevOps Environment Management

   
 DevOps Introduction  

DevOps is all about improving collaboration and productivity between Development and Operations Support teams.

The growing trend of Development Operations, or DevOps, has arisen due to current SDLC poor documentation and knowledge transfer between Software Developers, IT Operations and Support (break fix). Software Development does documentation the old fashioned way. They hand created release documents usually using Word. Knowledge Transfer takes place when the new software release is passed to IT Operations with this hand created documentation. This documentation becomes more inaccurate as the application evolves and changes.

  
 
LMC DevOps Environment Management
The challenge of implementing a comprehensive DevOps strategy is the separation of responsibilities and priorities across the organization. This is necessary as it ensures balance between the speed of new software deployment and the stability and continuity of business operations.

A necessary part of any DevOps strategy includes a component that enables Production Operations to successfully achieve its mandate of stability and 100 percent uptime yet allowing for speedier software deployment.

This component is defined as DevOps Environment Management - a set of features and processes that are used by both Development and Production Operations to manage environments that simply cannot be deleted and recreated if they become corrupted (such as integration, system test, pre-production and production environments).

ENTERPRISE TECHNICAL SUPPORT CENTER (ETSC)

DevOps Environment Management is a software platform and methodology that combines previously separate and often sequential shared processes across Development and Production Operations organizations into a continuous, collaborative process supported by a common set of tools a true union of people, process and technology.

ETSC eliminates 20% -25% of mistakes, miscommunications and misunderstanding around change that affect system downtime and reduces time from problem to resolution between 40% - 50% when compared with todays existing tools and processes.

  • Applications worked yesterday,but not working today

  • Environments"break" when releases/upgrades are deployed

  • Application Code works in one environment but not in another

ETSC improves the operational efficiency and outcome of environments that need to be managed. Used by both Development and Production Operations, it manages on line, and in real time, environments that simply cannot be deleted and recreated if they become corrupted (such as integration, system test, pre-production and production environments)...read more...

A core component of the DevOps Environment Management platform is the ability to track all types of changes. All changes to individual components are tracked in real time and are combined into an environment view where users are presented with a comprehensive view of all changes.

The platform is unique in its horizontal approach that is based on an environment-centric view, not the traditional silo view. This environment view contains all the components and their definitions, both physical (servers, databases, application servers etc.) and logical (connections, interfaces etc.) that the application(s) needs to function successfully. In taking a holistic view, it enables many of the interactions and processes between Development and Production Operations to be simplified or automated.

The DevOps Environment Management platform interacts with many of the traditional processes that exist between Development and Production Operations to simplify, augment or replace them. For example, it does not replace the change control process, but augments it by providing information for all changes that have actually occurred to a specific environment. The core capabilities include:
