Continuous Deployment

Should You Migrate Your DevOps Architecture to the Cloud?

Source- informationweek.com This is the question I’m helping numerous customers answer right now. Development operations and the creation of a continuous development cycle are somewhat of a new concept. Ever since development leaders saw that working with broken release cycles, coding practices, and heterogenous tools actually slowed the entire process down, we’ve seen massive movement around today’s modern DevOps culture. Before we go on, I need to touch on the concept of legacy. At a high level, this is any process
