According to professional IT experts, they have conclusively stated that the absence of tools makes automation to be difficult. And if it is impossible to automate, then the whole objective of DevOps is but a fantasy. This simply means that tooling is an indispensable component in the transformation process.
The primary purpose of this whitepaper is to guide you in the evaluation of tools for agile DevOps. Our goal is to guide you on choosing the right and effective tools for the success of DevOps.
Under the topic of DevOps tools, we identify different categorizations of these tools. To begin with, there are planning and collaboration tools. The primary use of these tools is to provide solutions through the collaborative efforts of self-organizing and cross-functional teams, and their customers and end-users.
Some examples of these tools which we shall be mentioning include Slack, Invision, Jira Software, and Confluence. All of these tools can be employed for different functions that will be explained in the whitepaper.
Furthermore, there is the SCM & Code Review Tools. Basically, we highlight two key examples of these tools: Gerrit Code Review and Bitbucket. In addition, we explain about Continuous Integration tools, which includes Circleci and Bamboo.
We take the evaluation deeper as we make comparisons between different Continuous Deployment tools. We elaborate extensively on the pros and cons of tools such as Spinnaker, Gitlab, Octopus Deploy, etc.
The knowledge would be incomplete without a discussion on other categories of DevOps tools such as Application Monitoring Tools, Continuous Testing Tools, Infrastructure Monitoring Tools, and Log Monitoring Tools.
Conclusively, it is therefore obvious that there is a vast range of knowledge to gain by accessing this whitepaper. Identifying the right tools for your organization is a crucial process, and that is why we’re here to help.
