Kyndryl Modern Operations Applications DevOps Intelligence

The DevOps Intelligence application balances three competing factors in the DevOps management process:
  • Stability
  • Reliability
  • Speed
Although DevOps can help you achieve faster delivery, this speed usually comes at the cost of stability and security. In a manually managed system, individuals can usually control two of these variables, typically at the expense of the third.
DevOps enables optimization of all three. The challenge is that many organizations employ a lot of development and delivery tools to understand what's happening in their various environments. The result is a significant amount of uncorrelated data, which is not useful.
The DevOps Intelligence application collects data from a library of industry standard tools and correlates the data in the context of six arenas:
  • Development
  • Build
  • Test
  • Deploy
  • Run
  • Security
This enables administrators in each of these disciplines to understand things such as success and failure rates, enabling the appropriate action to ensure stability, reliability, and speed.
Using the DevOps application, users can take the following actions:
  • Setup organization and team roles
  • Kick-off ingestion
  • View Develop, Build, Test, Run and Deploy dashboards.
