A DevOps Approach to Legacy Modernization with Blu Age

Way back in 2001, a small group of people issued a manifesto that came to revolutionize the world of software development. The principles underpinning this movement, known as agile development included a commitment to the end user, an ability to adapt to changing requirements, frequent delivery, collaborative work environments, results orientation, maintainability, simplicity, and constant improvement.

Over the years, many interpretations and related development frameworks have been made based on these core principles. At the heart of all of these is the need to divide the development process into smaller pieces and deliver the product in an iterative process testing at every step of the way.

IT professionals soon recognized that these principles could be applied to application maintenance and operations just as they had to software development. Over time, these systems of agile operations led to the new paradigm of DevOps. Under DevOps, operations and development IT staff work together to constantly deliver new or better functionality to the end user in an iterative manner as under agile. DevOps approaches generally favor the use of toolchains to automate this process as much as possible. John Willis summed up DevOps with the acronym CAMS, signifying Culture, Automation, Measurement, and Sharing. DevOps is a culture that promotes the collaboration between various partners in the improvement of IT, favoring automation of processes, and insisting on both the measurement of results and the sharing of this information between the parties.
