5 Major DevOps implementation challenges

Organizations today are striving towards enhancing innovation, agility and customer experience through modernized applications. And the key approach will be continuous delivery which incorporates agile and DevOps methodology.

DevOps is emerging as a popular term, as businesses implementing it are experiencing increased efficiency and productivity in work. Effective cooperation between the development and operations team boosts integration and strive towards achieving a common goal creating an efficient, reliable, and faster delivery system.

Major DevOps Challenges

Though DevOps has emerged as an important tool in achieving automation and integration, still for a business to implement newer technologies is challenging. Let us delve into the major problems faced by a business while implementing DevOps.

 

Adapting to a new culture

Implementing of a new process like DevOps in an organization changes the entire business perspective in terms of replacing old methods with new ones.

 

 

Traditional system

DevOps results will not be achievable if an organization is running on traditional infrastructure and systems. To be in the competition, business needs to adopt to the latest technologies and software.

 

 

 Numerous Tools

The availability of various tools in DevOps like open source are very easy to use. Here the challenge would be the lack of training or knowledge on using these tools.

 

 

Security of information

Will there be a security for the information? Though DevOps automates the entire process and fixes the problems faster based on customer feedback, the problem of security comes at the end of the process which becomes a major hindrance.

 

 

Separate Metrics

As the development and Operations team will be using different tool sets and metrics, it becomes quiet challenging to get adapted to a new set of tools and work ethics.

 

These are just a few of the major problems which a business would face at the time of implementing DevOps into the system. Overcoming these challenges will help in better growth of business and better work efficiency.

Team outing – splurge with nature

It was a perfect day on the 10th of August 2019 to head outside and enjoy the breezy, cloudy and exciting day at Urban Valley, a picturesque lakeside resort. The day was filled with fun, adventures, and bonding with the team.

We started off with team building activities like hula hoop, blind fold game, human knot and the puzzle challenge. These games were organised to build certain core capabilities of the employees. The strategies used in these games by each of the team member highlighted their individual strengths.

In the hula hoop game, the challenge was to pass through the hoop two times without leaving hands. The teams communicated and focused to complete it.

In the blind fold game, one team member was blind folded and had to pick few things upon the instructions of the team member.  The blind folded person had to trust and focus on listening to the voice of his team member, against that of others.

The mind-boggling puzzle game was the toughest challenge as the final picture had to be created with bits and pieces. It was tough initially, but on seeing the original picture it was easier to solve the puzzle. The teams worked collaboratively in joining the pieces to get the result.

The main goal of conducting these activities was to enhance communication, co-ordination, trust, time management, decision making amongst the teams.

With five teams playing, we had two winners . All the teams worked collaboratively towards winning and strategising their own ways of completing the tasks.

It was time for some fun with interesting indoor, outdoor games at the resort like badminton, cricket, zip lining, paintball and more. The day would have been incomplete without shaking a leg in rain dance to the electrifying beats of the DJ and relaxing in the pool.

It was a well-planned day revitalizing us with new energy, creating stronger team bond and better interaction with our team-mates. It was a day never to be forgotten and we hope to recreate the memories with more enthusiasm and fervour.
