We’ve all seen industry trends come and go, but DevOps can’t be considered a fad. It’s an approach that has come about as a result of drastic movement in the industry towards automation and the changing role of the IT admin. This change is here to stay, and the earlier you hop on the train, the more benefit you will get out of the new tools available to you. Tools like the Directory-as-a-Service® platform from JumpCloud® allow IT to be agile because they automate tedious tasks, and allow more time for innovation and productivity. JumpCloud’s cloud-hosted directory service allows you to centralize user management, outsource LDAP, drive WiFi authentication with your core GApps or Office 365 credentials, manage devices via GPO-like capabilities, SSO into cloud and on-prem applications, secure your systems with MFA, and more.
James Brown, CXO of JumpCloud, delves deep into five reasons why DevOps is starting to hit its stride in last month’s Wired Innovations Insights column. As he explains the evolution of the methodology emerging out of the DevOps State of the Union event earlier this year, he also details how unicorns, knowledge, small companies with big successes, security confirmations, and strategy components all aid in giving steam to the movement.
