A Modular Approach

Trend #1: DevOps will increase modular approaches to system building.

Previously, IT organizations created monolithic products for their customers. However, the best practice today is to employ small and nimble teams to manage individual applications. While this can sound dysfunctional, companies that embrace the chaos to drive future growth will thrive.

TIP: The crux of DevOps success is in breaking activities into bite-sized chunks. For any new product that an organization launches, DevOps teams should always approach the application with a modular approach in mind, and have a clear plan on how to break down existing monolithic products in the same fashion.

DevOps – a cultural and professional IT movement focused on changing the mindset of how organizations function – will no doubt make a significant impact across many companies this year. Whether it is more stable operating environments, faster delivery of product features, quicker resolution of problems, or continuous software delivery, DevOps can benefit a company's product lifecycle, its competitive advantage, and its ability to more quickly meet customer needs.

Yet for all of its benefits, DevOps is still in its early phases, because it's about making a significant cultural shift in how an organization works – and what tools it uses to improve its products. Rajesh Sethu, director of DevOps at Replicon, identifies five key trends organizations should watch in 2016, as well as tips on how these trends should be used to ensure DevOps success in your business.
