What's in a name, anyway? Some call it DevOps 2.0, others BizDevOps, and the most ambitious and inclusive refer to it as BizDevSecTestOps, but by any name, it's going to dramatically change the way software is imagined, developed and released. BizDevOps will bring the business side, developers and operations people to the table at the very start and, unlike what happens today, they will all remain, at that same "table" throughout the entire process. All decisions about software will be decided with the business priorities in mind, thanks to a new generation of digital performance monitoring tools that will make it easy to pull the business, software and user metrics together in one place.
In a BizDevOps world, software developers will have clearer priorities and shorter backlogs, but fewer opportunities for creativity and autonomy. Artificial intelligence (AI) and low-code/no-code development platforms may also erode the "idea" of developer as time passes. At the same time, software testers, already under fire from a DevOps-born automation push, will face the biggest reinvention challenges of their lives. Those with business understanding, an interest in data science and openness to new experiences will fare the best.
BizDevOps is just the latest evolution in software development, and it can be hard to keep up with it all. Here you'll find expert advice, the latest news and product roundups, as well as all the relevant trends in everything from data science to low-code/no-code and AI development platforms.
