A DevOps toolchain is a set of tools and processes that allows development teams to build, deploy, monitor, and scale applications faster and more efficiently.

It's a collection of technologies, practices, and automation solutions that can effectively upgrade your applications and services throughout their whole lifecycle.

Why do you need a DevOps toolchain?

Every quality solution must be approached uniquely and efficiently. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. DevOps tools help automate or streamline some aspects of software development, and when combined, form a DevOps toolchain that is created and adjusted for a particular purpose.

Here are three main business benefits of the DevOps toolchain:

  • Faster implementations - using the DevOps toolchain involves automating a large number of processes. This way, time is saved and product delivery is accelerated.
  • Better control and management - incidents are no longer a matter of if, but when. Therefore, an incident response plan is essential to ensuring business continuity. By using the DevOps toolchain, you reduce the possibility of potential errors and
  • Improved product quality - when developing software, prioritizing problems by severity, monitoring, testing, and unhindered access to information is crucial. The DevOps toolchain enables you to control all of this, making the end product or service the best possible.

Understanding the DevOps toolchain

Considering that there are different development stages, there are also tools for each individual stage. Each tool contributes to the improvement of the system in its own way.

Below are several stages of software development, and the ways in which DevOps tools improve them.

Communication

When teams work together as a single unit, you get the best out of DevOps. Smooth and efficient communication within and among teams is one of the most fundamental success factors for accelerating software development. This is exactly why there are various tools that enable fast, simple, and effective communication.

Source control

All files, codes, settings, and other types of data must have their own central location. This data can further be distributed to individual teams to work with. There are various source management programs made exactly for this purpose.

Issue tracking & problem monitoring

Tracking issues is much easier if everyone uses the same tool. This way, the team in charge of removing them always has access to all the necessary information, knows how to proceed, and does not waste time.

Continous integrations

Continuous integration is the practice of building software continuously, automatically, and in parallel, so that you can test and deploy new versions very often.

Most of the time the code may be functional on its own, but problems arise when it gets integrated. In such cases, it is very important to solve the problem quickly. That's why there is various software that facilitates continuous integration and takes such issues into account.

Monitoring

The functionality and performance of a service or product are extremely important. These items affect the quality of the final product.

Monitoring tools in DevOps help you understand how the product/service is performing and how many resources are being used. It also helps you troubleshoot any issues as soon as possible.

Data management

Processing and managing large amounts of data is a big challenge, but that's why data management software exists. With this kind of software, you can easily access and manage the information you want.

Conclusion

A quality product and fast delivery often do not go hand in hand. However, with the DevOps toolchain, combining these two features becomes a reality. Using this approach, you can get the most out of each particular segment of the project.
