DevOps is a set of practices, tools, and a cultural philosophy that automates and integrates the processes between software development and IT teams. It emphasizes team empowerment, cross-team communication & collaboration, and technology automation. The term DevOps, a combination of the word’s development and operations, reflects the process of integrating these disciplines into one, continuous process.

DevOps team at MAK IT Sp. z o.o. includes developers and IT operations teams working collaboratively in the entire project life cycle to increase the speed and quality of product development. Under the DevOps model, our development and operations teams merge into a single team where the engineers work across the entire application life cycle.

Benefits of DevOps

DevOps practices let you move at the velocity you need to innovate faster, adapt to changing markets better, and become more efficient at driving business results.

When you increase the pace of releases, you can improve your product faster and build a competitive advantage.

DevOps practices like continuous integration and continuous delivery can ensure the quality of application updates and infrastructure changes so you can reliably deliver at a more rapid pace while maintaining an optimum experience for end-users.

Under a DevOps model developers & operations teams collaborate closely, share responsibilities, and combine their workflows. This reduces inefficiencies and saves time.

You can adopt a DevOps model without sacrificing security by using automated, integrated security testing tools.

DevOps Practices at MAK IT

 Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD): DevOps practices such as CI/CD let DevOps teams at MAK IT deliver rapidly, safely and reliably. CI is a software development practice where developers regularly merge their code changes into a central repository, followed by automated builds and tests. The key goals of CI are to detect and eliminate bugs quicker, enhance the quality of the software, and lower the time it takes to validate and release new software updates. CD expands on CI by deploying all code changes to a testing or production environment after the build stage.

 Microservices: At MAK IT microservices architecture is a design approach to building a single application as a set of small services. Each service runs in its process and communicates with other services through a well-defined API interface using a gRPC protocol. We also use a microservices architecture to make the applications more flexible and enable quicker innovation.

 Monitoring and Logging: By capturing and analyzing logs generated by the applications, our experienced DevOps team can better understand how software changes or updates may affect the clients.
 Building a secure DevOps model: DevOps is fundamentally changing how development and operations are done today. You can use the DevOps practices, process, frameworks, and workflow, based on the DevOps philosophy, to build security into your software development life cycle at speed and scale without sacrificing safety while minimizing risks, ensuring compliance, and reducing friction and costs. DevOps and DevSecOps allow development, operations, and security teams to balance security and compliance with the speed of delivery, and to build security into the full Software Development Life Cycle.
