Why is DevOps Integration Critical?Why should you integrate your DevOps pipeline?
With a multidisciplinary team that uses heterogeneous tools to build, test, deploy, and monitor a software project, collaboration becomes a huge challenge. This leads to a lot of critical issues like:
- Lack of end-to-end visibility into the pipeline
- Poor team collaboration
- Lack of traceability of artifacts (user stories, features, epics, bugs, work items etc.)
- Disconnected workflows
- Defective software
- Inadequate governance

How can you automate your DevOps pipeline?
Most teams only partially automate their DevOps pipeline, with point-to-point integrations. Let’s consider that your development team integrates Jira with ServiceNow, so they can automatically synchronize all the information related to customer issues to Jira, thereby accelerating development.
This will increase the pace of your development team. However, the testing team may not have automated their workflows, making it difficult for them to catch up with the speed of the development team.
Therefore, testing will become a bottleneck for your software delivery process and accelerating your development will not be of much help.
How can you resolve this? The solution to this problem is to take a holistic approach and automate your DevOps pipeline from end to end, by integrating all the tools in your SDLC.
