DevOps is a set of practices and a culture of collaboration, aimed at improving the IT infrastructure and processes by eliminating waste of any kind. As transition to DevOps methods and workflows results in drastic improvement of software delivery and maintenance operations, many businesses worldwide are eager to accomplish this digital transformation. The only problem is that building an in-house DevOps team is not always possible, let alone feasible. DevOps engineers cost a lot and can work effectively only following the DevOps principles and culture, which means a long and costly cultural transformation before a business can reap the benefits of an internal DevOps team.
This is why multiple companies worldwide realize the benefits of DevOps outsourcing, as the Managed Services Providers (MSPs) can attract and retain top DevOps talents and provide the comfortable environment for them in order to ensure success of your outsourced projects.
