Software Delivery Nirvana
If you’re not employing DevOps tools and methods, chances are your software delivery deployment practices look something like this:
In this kind of siloed structure, it is common for the each team to only be concerned with their side of the process, i.e., development ignores scalability and operation, while the operations teams tries to focus on making the deployment sufficient enough to pass. This methodology results in lost time, wasted efforts, and what is considered today to be a mediocre outcome; both teams focus on their individual responsibilities and not the overall success of the deployment. If this scenario sounds like your business, chances are you are always playing catch-up, never ahead of business demand and falling behind your competition.

Practicing DevOps is like picking carrots with this machine:
Microservices: The Last Step Towards Software Delivery Nirvana
The term “microservices” refers to the unique set of code for a specific function, packaged and deployed as a service that is accessible by other microservices and applications. This type of organization allows for a small, easy to understand code base; each microservice is packaged with its own unique code language, making it easier to scale and deploy each build. Microservices are also convenient for updating or replacing specific functionalities of software; developers can work on individual microservices while the rest of application continues to run uninterrupted.
If you want to compete effectively in today’s software-driven economy, maximize your technical efficiencies and reach “software delivery nirvana”, with the use of DevOps, Continuous Delivery and microservices. This requires an unrelenting focus on these tools and practices; an automated delivery pipeline, a strong microservices architecture, and an open culture for innovation. Once you accomplish these, you are well on your way to the “software delivery nirvana”.
