As organizations continue to mature in their cloud adoption journey, boundaries between application development and operations tend to disappear. This ‘DevOps’ approach to development, new tools, and security by design is accelerating applications and services delivery at scale. It offers a significant source of competitive advantage in providing customer-centric solutions and services with faster time to market.
How TCS helps in agile cloud-first application development
TCS DevOps framework ensures:
Cross-vendor product support for IDE components.
Integration of software configuration management products, legacy/mainframe transaction processing and database environments, test automation products and schedulers.
Release management and automation products for a continuous delivery pipeline.
Development and test offloading products with built-in test virtualization features for simulating system or system integration tests.
Cloud-based pricing models for increased ROI.
With the steady adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in the enterprise technology landscape, organizations are looking for tools to create automated and reliable end-to-end ML pipelines. TCS helps organizations adopt an agile approach to building cloud-first applications with Amazon SageMaker Pipelines for Machine Learning Projects.
A focused approach to DevOps strategy is more relevant in the post-pandemic scenario as enterprises look to build resilience, agility and adaptability through processes such as infrastructure as a code (IaaC) and lower cost to quality through a shift-left approach. A robust DevOps framework with the right processes and tools can help achieve efficiencies at each stage of the product life cycle.
