DevOps automation tools streamline the development process from writing code to deployment through continuous integration and delivery. They automate various activities like building, testing, releasing, and deploying code changes safely and at high velocity. Common functions of these tools include deployment automation, configuration management, test automation, infrastructure management, and continuous integration and delivery workflows.
DevOps automation tools are used to automate the software development lifecycle and deployment process. They help facilitate communication, integration, and coordination between software developers and Information Technology (IT) professionals. Automation tools enable continuous integration of new functionalities and features into existing software programs by automating builds and testing. They also automate software deployment to servers and infrastructure to push software updates. This reduces manual efforts, saves time and cost of development and delivery, and enables faster release of features to customers.
The global DevOps Automation Tools Market size is estimated to be valued at US$ 5.79 Bn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 23% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
