Embracing DevOps with GitHub and Azure to Accelerate Innovation

In a technology-driven world, developers are at the heart of your company’s future innovation endeavors. From those first lines of code, how do you give your developers the best tools to unleash their capabilities and make them their most productive selves. Productivity doesn’t just come from great tools; you also need to facilitate collaboration and code re-use across teams. This accelerates problem-solving and focuses efforts on solving new problems important to your business, versus those that have already been solved by others.

In terms of developer productivity, it’s never been a better time to be a developer. Great editors and IDEs are available across Mac, Linux, and Windows with features and integrations to keep developers productive and in the flow. It’s never been easier or quicker to develop advanced apps that can make use of cloud services like artificial intelligence and cognitive services. In fact, by leveraging open source software, including a package dependency and a handful of lines of code, you can get a fully functional app with advanced capabilities like image processing in no time at all.

Behind all of that code are the contributors. A global, and diverse community of contributors, consisting of millions of open source developers collaborating as a community to build the best solutions, with a diversity of views and use cases that build and extend projects to far outpace what any one individual or organisation can achieve alone.

Would you choose software created by a handful of isolated developers or software crafted by thousands working collaboratively to make a stronger build? 

  • 99% of large enterprise applications leverage open source software

Microsoft Azure is the cloud with developer services built-in and GitHub is building on this foundation to become Microsoft’s core DevOps Platform.

Devops & Github

Leverage Microsoft DevOps with GitHub to deliver fast, efficient innovation 

1 Product Innovation

  • Improved app performance, scalability, and resiliency in the cloud
  • Multilevel collaboration and expertise sharing
  • Autonomous innovation & project management

2 Delivery Speed

  • Stronger performance with faster build times
  • Continuous integration
  • Code tests and staged environment releases

3 Flexibility & Control

  • Any language, any platform, any cloud
  • Control and support over your entire cloud state
  • Management at every stage of app development

4 Security

  • Code protection with end-to-end security
  • Automatic governance policy checks & validations enforced post-deployment
  • Vulnerability reviews and extended support

DevOps allows us to accelerate delivery, while still delivering reliable products and services. This is about bringing people together, through shared common goals, increased collaboration, and a focus on improvement. Technology plays a key role in helping to execute a DevOps strategy by enabling teams to collaborate more, enhance productivity, facilitate experimentation, and automate their processes from development, through to delivery and operations. It’s also about delivering value faster by increasing efficiency, eliminating waste, and streamlining feedback back to developers to continuously improve the product. The result: better products, delivered faster, to happier customers.
