“Change is the only constant in life” – while this stands true from a philosophical end, change also becomes possible only when there is something “constant” that exists. With “continuous” everything, digital transformation has witnessed a massive push – constant and parallel processes within an SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) have become a trending strategy to expedite and scale deliverables. This has come in by practicing the core of “continuous” everything.
Software products have reached a point where their impeccable performance can only be reached at, if their lifecycle process is accelerated with a seamless amalgamation of the traditionally siloed processes such as development, testing, release, performance, security, accessibility, etc. – all these efforts have become intertwined and interlinked to optimize a product.
With DevOps services, DevSecOps or performance engineering, the aforementioned efforts are conducted simultaneously to achieve maximum efficiency. This continuous journey has some key facets within, which need to be elucidated upon and looked at as imperative nuances to be incorporated in an organization’s culture itself –
This set of “continuous” everything is surely not exhaustive since there are an array of subsets within and there would be a continuous cycle within each nuance. With the cloud in picture, these practices become essential all the more, to create a constant loop of agility and scalability. Since an agile SDLC process is modeled as a continuous practice – different from the old Waterfall model – the importance of “continuous” everything increases all the more.
Thus, continuity is the key for excellence and expedience when it comes to software products. With the latest trends to accelerate digital transformation, such as DevOps services or DevSecOps, continuous practices have come into being to expedite deliverables. Evolving from the old models of waterfall, iterative, spiral and V-shaped, a new agile age has helped make a product’s life cycle more efficient and scalable. Thus, a “continuous” culture has become customary today – be it the superset of a CI/CD pipeline or the nuanced areas of continuous testing, feedback or collaboration, a product sees its fruition through an infinite loop – ironical, isn’t it?
