Learning Outcomes

A tool-agnostic professional engaged in the design, implementation and management of DevOps deployment pipelines and toolchains that support Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Testing and potentially Continuous Deployment.

DevOps is a cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration and integration between software developers and IT operations professionals.

A Continuous Delivery Architect 

A continuous delivery architect is a a tool-agnostic individual engaged in the design, implementation and management of DevOps deployment pipelines and toolchains that support Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Testing and, potentially, Continuous Deployment. A continuous delivery architect is also involved in defining or integrating underpinning processes, metrics, APIs and cultural considerations.

 The DevOps InstituteThe DevOps Institute (DOI) is bringing enterprise level DevOps training and certification to the IT market. Working with thought leaders from the DevOps community, the IT Service Management field and the IT training market, the DevOps Institute is setting the standard in quality for enterprise grade DevOps education and training.

DevOps Defined

As the emerging practice grows, the definition of DevOps continues to change. According to Wikipedia, DevOps is aset of practices that emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes. It aims at establishing a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably. Certified DevOps Practitioner roles fulfill this definition through evolutionary skills and improved communication and collaboration between IT teams.

Organisational Benefits

Faster To Market

  • The primary business drivers we see behind Continuous Delivery adoption is that it both facilitates and encourages shorter delivery cycles.
  • Continuous Delivery Architect (CDA) must be integrate their work with the rest of the team at least once per day, and ideally, a couple of times an hour.
  • By releasing small features more regularly, software and the value that it’s intended to deliver gets in to the hands of customers faster. We see that the sooner you can get software to customers, the sooner you can start getting feedback, and the less time you spend working on unnecessary or less valuable features.

Improved Engineering Practices

  • We’ve observed Continuous Delivery as the catalyst for improving development practices through the delivery cycle, from project inception through to maintenance.
  • The need to keep software release ready encourages, and some corners may argue, demands the adoption of good software engineering practices, such as Test- and Behaviour-Driven Development, Pair Programming, techniques that we believe, over the course of a software project, will increase your ability to move quickly with confidence.
  • When the business demands more regular release cycles, technology teams are incentivised to leverage higher levels of automation. With more regular builds, resource intensive manual QA processes should be replaced in-part (or ideally, in full) with automated UAT suites. Performance testing and the associated provisioning of infrastructure can be automated, similarly with security testing.

Reduced Risk

  • Big releases containing many changesets, perhaps in extreme cases, the culmination of many months work, offer significant risk. Our experience tells us, the larger the deployment, the more likely something will go wrong.
  • By contrast, we see that releasing little and often keep changesets small, and accordingly, the risk of the change introducing issue is reduced.
  • In addition, by practising deployments more regularly, we become better at them. We feel the pain of bad deployment practices more regularly, we’re better incentivised to replace manual steps with automation, and so the risk associated with human error becomes a less likely occurrence, and releases become a less resource intensive practice.

Individual Benefits

  • You will able to confidently and positively contribute as a Continuous Delivery Architect focused on Continuous Deployment and Integration.
  • You will to enhance your CV and boost your chances of landing a security focused role in a DevOps environment.
  • You will have a better understanding of the principles behind the DevOps approach to software development.
  • You will develop and practice a range of soft skills required by highly effective DevOps teams in a safe and neutral environment
