Overview

Embrace enterprise-ready DevOps tools

Delivering software and services at the speed the market demands requires teams to iterate and experiment rapidly. They must deploy new versions frequently, driven by feedback and data. The most successful cloud development teams adopt modern DevSecOps culture and practices, embrace cloud-native architectures, and assemble toolchains from best-in-class tools to unleash their productivity.


An introduction to IBM’s Cloud DevOps strategy: a modern way to deliver digital products

Benefits

See what you can achieve By leveraging continuous integration, delivery and deployment, compliance and monitoring on the IBM Cloud, enterprises like yours can: Capture the market

Deploy continuously

Continuously deploy software into development, test and production environments.

Scale smoothly

Scale DevOps successfully without disrupting the business.

Increase consistency

Drive environment consistency from testing to production and across hybrid cloud.

Unite your culture

Build a startup culture that brings business, development and operations together.

Release frequently

Facilitate improved application quality, security and stability though frequent releases.

Limit costs

Help reduce costs through improved efficiency and reduced outages.

Use cases

DevSecOps Look at DevOps with a focus on secure design, development and delivery. Note how security is architected into cloud-native applications and platform constructs such as clusters, namespaces deployment configurations, SDN, roles and pipelines. Use the IBM Security architecture to safeguard and monitor your cloud applications and data. View IBM Cloud security architecture
AIOps Apply deep learning and machine learning to model behavioral patterns in operations, using the data that cloud-native applications generate to arrive at predictions. When applied to IT operations, AIOps provides insight about a system and can give rise to predictive alters, reduction in mean time to repair, and outage avoidance. Read more about AIOps
ModelOps Part of infusing AI into the enterprise is building a rich set of ML models that can differentiate you from your competition. ML model lifecycles are highly iterative and involve code, deployments and publishing for consumption. The constructs are different, but the pipeline activity, such as application code, can be automated in a toolchain. Read more about ModelOps
GitOps Adopt an approach in which operations benefit from managing platforms and services on “Day 2,” similar to the way developers manage their code on “Day 1.” GitOps is an evolutionary step in infrastructure as code. Source repositories are the site of truth for operational, infrastructure and platform assets that define the desired state of environments. Read about DevOps architectures
