How The Healthcare Industry Benefits From Adopting DevOps Practices
While there are established advantages of using DevOps practices for any company that operates in the cloud, there are a few essential benefits of implementing these practices for the healthcare industry:
Automation of Routine Tasks: Numerous routine and repetitive tasks such as configuration checks, monitoring the workloads, following the infrastructure health checklists, etc can be automated using DevOps tools. Such an approach enables the CI/CD pipelines, meaning the majority of daily routine tasks are done in the background, so the IT team can be allocated to delivering more value to end users.
Shorter Time to Market for Products:The software delivery lifecycle becomes predictable when the cloud infrastructure management is automated. This results in significant shortening of the time to market for product updates.
Better Collaboration Across the Company: Aside from the speed-up of accomplishing requests from various teams, the IT team achieves a better standing in terms of management efficiency with the data management team.
Data Security and Regulatory Compliance: DevOps culture ensures elimination of all kinds of waste, while ensuring optimal performance and security of operations. Automated unit tests ensure thorough code testing to minimize the risk of code bugs and backdoor access to the apps. Constant monitoring of infrastructure determines the optimal ways of system functioning and potential security breaches. Regulatory requirements can be easily codified and scaled, reducing operational overheads and simplifying compliance checks.
