Key Challenges Faced by Banks and FIs for DevOps Adoption
Lack of proper planning and an in-house skill set often leads to the fragmented implementation of DevOps
There is a need for a paradigm shift from the age-old culture that allocates budget and resources based on sub-teams and separates development from operations
Absence of a well-defined transition framework that can bring development and operations teams onto a common platform
Shortage of necessary investment in tooling and automation that can amplify the continuous removal of bottlenecks in the long run
The need for a centralized governing body that has executive-level support to plan, implement, and review the DevOps shift continually

Frequently asked questions
DevOps services offer consultancy to an organization on its path to embracing DevOps practices, tools, and culture. Through DevOps services, an organization can understand the maturity level of their existing application and set a roadmap for complete DevOps implementation. These services also offer expert advice for selecting the right tools and frameworks based on the budget, nature of the application, and complexities involved in the implementation process.
The four key components of DevOps are alerting, an agile framework, automated testing, and continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD). Alerting involves automated alerts based on application logs to understand the nature of the data that is being processed by the system. An agile framework enforces the flexibility that is needed to deal with unplanned tasks during every production sprint. Automated testing ensures that a code change does not lead to inadvertent errors. CI/CD enables faster releases for incremental updates.
The DevOps approach aims to bridge the gap between software production and operations by setting up a common platform for goal-setting, communication, and collaboration. In today’s digital era, the demands of consumers are rapidly evolving. Without DevOps processes to build, test, and deploy small packets of updates at a faster rate, it’s a challenge to keep pace with market dynamics.
DevOps is one of the critical enablers for digital transformation in a banking or financial institution. DevOps facilitates faster release cycles that help an organization keep pace with customer preferences. It also helps effectively utilize cloud-native infrastructure, microservices, and APIs to deliver better software quality with higher reliability.
