How Remote Work Could Hasten DevOps Success

Due to this COVID19 pandemic, the entire corporate world has shifted to remote work culture. Most of us are working from home to avoid human contact as much as possible. Although this remote work culture is throwing an ample amount of challenges on our way, it is expected that remote work culture will be beneficial for an organization’s DevOps culture in so many ways. 

In spite of many companies instilling DevOps culture into their system, DevOps still continues to remain a myth for most of the employees. According to DevOps Institution, almost 50 percent of organizations struggle with their DevOps implementation. On top of it, when most of the employees are working remotely nowadays and also for an undecided amount of time in the future, bridging the two worlds of Development and operations seems like a sturdy task.

But to our surprise, organizations are discovering that this remote work culture is actually working as a catalyst to establish the DevOps norms. Wondering what might be the reason behind it?

When all the teams are working remotely, these boundaries called ‘team’ hazes away. As a result, each individual contributes more to collaboration in an effective way to deliver high-quality software products and hence emerges the DevOps culture.

The collaboration happens through scheduled skype meetings, video calls, and slack channels nowadays. This decreases the chances of casual conversations crashing procedures and assists with encouraging cross-practical groups adjusted around the business need. Remote work expels customary storehouses and makes increasingly synergistic culture, which is the way to scaling DevOps. 

The macroeconomic circumstance additionally energizes cross-practical joint effort: As organizations battle to alter while confronting strain to develop to stay aware of client requests, they are progressively perceiving DevOps as a lifesaver as opposed to the most recent innovation prevailing fashion. 

As these associations rotate to concentrate on advanced, unpredictable client needs, and the criticalness of the present business condition, the cross-practical coordinated effort has gotten basic for organizations to flourish. The move to remote work has worked as a quick fix at the social change part of DevOps, making a once in the past moderate progress do or die.

But what happens when things go back to normal? Once we have successfully gone through the pandemic and our office resumes because no social distancing is needed anymore? Will the organizations keep up it to guarantee that DevOps keeps on driving the business? Or then again will they conclude that the social change is dug into the point that coming back to an office domain won't crash their endeavors? The truth will surface eventually.
