There are several myths floating regarding DevOps in the IT industry today! It is not surprising to read them, especially given it is the latest trend and every organization jumping onto the wagon. 

From our experience, we can say that DevOps is worth the hype. If done and implemented properly, this DevOps approach can help in delivering a massive positive effect on organizations and businesses. It helps in reducing costs, improving performances, and breaking down silos between different teams. 

We look at the most common myths that are doing the recent rounds– 

  1. DevOps is only for the web 
  2. DevOps is only related to engineering and operations 
  3. DevOps is not suited for implementation in regulated industries 
  4. DevOps cannot exist without a cloud
  5. There is only a single approach to Azure DevOps 
  6. Purchasing DevOps tools are the same as doing DevOps
  7. DevOps and Agile Development is the same
  8. DevOps only focusses on improving quality and stability

Granted that we come across these talks through our walks of life in both the IT and non-IT industry, there is a lot more truth hidden behind every statement. Yes, this term has been boomed thanks to the ever-growing startup culture as well as the ever-increasing and expanding IT world.

Let’s now look as to which all are true and to what extent.

  • DevOps are only for the web

It is true that this practice initially began with companies that were born on the web. But over time, large organizations and corporations have successfully incorporated this practice and principles in their work culture in non-tech space. 

  • DevOps is only related to engineering and operations 

Yes, the term DevOps is made up of development and operations. And that is how the concept was initiated. But in current times, this approach has been modified to empower whole organizations. Everyone involved in the delivery of the product has a part to play in this process. 

  • DevOps is not suited for implementation in regulated industries 

Understandable that in a regulated industry, there is an extreme need for checks and balances, but this does not hinder the DevOps process. In contrast, DevOps helps with compliance if implemented properly. Automated process flows and tools can help in maintaining audit trails. 

  • DevOps cannot exist without cloud 

It is true that when people think of DevOps, the next thought that comes to mind is the need for cloud computing. Cloud does help testers and developers deploy, test, and make changes rapidly. But if properly and efficiently implemented, processes can be optimized using the DevOps approach without the need for Cloud. 

Virtualization becomes optional. 

  • There is only a single approach to Azure DevOps 

Untrue. Every organization and business has different requirements and goals. A single uniform approach, although applicable does not necessarily have to be efficient. Processes and activities that worked in one organization do not necessarily work in another.

  • Purchasing DevOps tools is the same as doing DevOps 

That’s like saying, buying books is the same as studying them. Although purchasing tools is an investment in the right direction, this doesn’t necessarily help fast track and improve processes. There is an important need for a DevOps culture as well knowledge of the same to work efficiently and produce results.

  • DevOps and Agile Development are the same 

This is the most common myth surrounding DevOps. Although the two are closely related, and processes such as agile, lean, and other “work fast, ship often” models do form an important part of it, they do not necessarily define DevOps. The agile process, although helps in the faster shipment of products, but does not necessarily improve collaboration between different teams during the software lifecycle.

  • DevOps only focusses on improving quality and stability 

Although, if the company requires a sole focus on product quality, then yes DevOps does help fulfill this task. But in the bigger picture, DevOps helps in automating workflows, helping people focus more on the tasks at hand, improving the culture of the organization, and reducing burnout of employees.
