How Cloud and DevOps work together to accelerate digital transformation

Digital transformation is nothing but changing the way we think. By collaborating the two worlds, DevOps and Cloud, accelerated innovation can lead to wonders.


Cloud and DevOps: The foundations of digital transformation

Both technologies have their unique benefits. DevOps is all about culture, process, and continuous improvement, whereas cloud computing is all about technology and services. Organizations think of transformation either when they come across a problem or to stay relevant in the market.

For an organization to transform digitally, they also need to be prepared to bring a notable shift in the culture and beliefs of the organization. Thus, we can say that transformation is an ongoing process.

When we talk about data, security is the next obvious parameter that raises the question. By now, you must be aware that cloud computing has evolved strongly with security parameters, and surprisingly, the data theft from cloud servers is way lesser than that of self-hosted servers. The encryption feature adds a layer of security to the data being hosted on cloud servers. Additionally, data is backed up and can be restored rapidly during the emergencies like outages and natural calamities.

Organizations focusing on technology today inevitably turn to DevOps in digital transformation as it accelerates the development of tools for effective restructuring.

The adoption of technologies like Big Data analytics, deep learning, augmented reality, robotics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) by companies is facilitated by cloud computing, which is a critical facilitator of digital transformation. Businesses may simplify their IT systems, focus on digital transformation, and discover new ways to connect with consumers using a cloud-delivered and cloud-enabled revenue model.

The global market for cloud computing was estimated at  $390 billion in 2021, and according to a recent study by BlueWave Consulting, it is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of about 11% by 2028 to reach USD 852 billion in sales.
