As the Head of Sales at ShuttleOps, my job isn’t to hard sell you anything.
As cliché as it might sound, my job is to understand what your goals and challenges are and determine if our products and services will best help you achieve them.
In these “uncertain times” (an overused truism) of 2020, the objectives and the challenges in achieving business growth strategies have not changed, but the sense of urgency around some of them has. With all that is happening innovation, efficiency, and security remain key priorities.
I would argue that in order to innovate more, as well as invest in security, all with downward economic pressures in play, you must first become more efficient. This doesn’t mean letting go of your hard fought and won DevSecOps people, but it can come in the form of choosing a smarter path to DevSecOps nirvana.
How does efficiency and DevSecOps help you achieve nirvana?
Efficiency allows you to focus on security and compliance
Many companies today are not securing their applications during development nor deploying to an always secure and compliant infrastructure. Efficiency in your application deployment and infrastructure management allows you to spend time on ensuring you are secure, compliant, and limit your vulnerabilities.
Efficiency allows your business and your developers to do more with less
One common pitfall in achieving DevSecOps nirvana is the complexity of developing the pipelines, patterns, and integrations across tools that help you achieve efficiency. Already integrated SaaS platforms with high value connections built in get you out of the game of integration, and into the game of innovation.
DevSecOps creates efficiency and thus capacity for innovation
Once you define your business process and adopt simple tools for executing the pipeline that is right for your business, you can focus all of your talented developers on innovation, developing new features, responding to customers, and challenging your competitors.
How do we achieve this future state? Well…
- Define your pipelines, then automate your process
- Adopt easy to onboard, already integrated, no-code platforms
- Use built-in automation that is provided as a service
- Federate access and capability across your organization enabling application deployment and DevSecOps management to people not traditionally involved in these efforts
- Provide better visibility across the business into your IT/AppDev/and DevSecOps initiatives via common panes of glass, metrics, and dashboards
We discussed many of these trends and patterns during a recent AMA with some DevSecOps experts. You can check it out here!
We also recently published an eBook with DevOps.com on digital transformation in the current environment. You can download it here!
