Rapid Application Development, Testing, and Management

Astir Analytics utilizes DevOps methodologies and tools in the development of custom applications. As the latest, greatest in development, testing, deployment, and management processes, DevOps offers incredible flexibility, speed, and scalability.

DevOps is a natural evolution of “agile systems administration” or “agile operations,” as it continues the movement away from traditional development methodologies. DevOps allows for the breaking down of walls between the various teams of a development project, fostering greater communications for the accommodation of quicker changes and rapid deployment. The methodology and tools bridge the gaps that normally exist between business analysts, developer, and quality assurance software testers, and when used correctly offers unparalleled flexibility and scalability.
