DevOps also has a negative side for itself. Agile deployments set a standard. There is the expectation of the business that we can do everything super-fast and get that done and it is a challenge for sure. For some, deployment is easy, and it’s not the same for others. DevOps in certain teams look a lot different than DevOps at scale across an enterprise with a lot of developers. When companies work to include security, the “Sec” of DevSecOps, it adds another wrench in the process.
From a startup view, starting security into the DevOps method is easy as developing bandwidth for coding is done by another person. Different versions of DevOps pipelines can be used in larger organizations, distributed worldwide, and different development teams. Some leverage security while some don’t and it is a real test for the security teams controlling the schedules.
At the start of DevOps/DevSecOps, one needs tools to handle the process. The trust factor is real when it comes to the implementation of DevOps.
There is a need for correspondence about what the industry calls DevOps. Referring to it as DevSecOps is a practice, but not standard. “Fin” is proposed to the title on certain occasions and it is done to focus more on the financial aspects. Calling DevOps with various things is not harmful to the transformation process. It is highlighting a pain that is growing. Bringing in more security could be termed as a conscious decision by the companies.
Most of the companies are using the term “DevOps” but in an incorrect manner. According to the sellers, they’re DevOps and according to the people, they’re DevOps engineers.
You can get deceived with ease in the current market. You could be persuaded to spend money without getting any value in return with ease. Many are into DevOps nowadays, as it is what’s hot and shining in the market currently, and as it is touted to be the latest way to make money.
DevOps is in its second decade. What it needs at the time being are time and maturity.
