What're DevOps Pipelines?
DevOps pipelines are a set of tools and processes used by DevOps teams to develop, test and deploy software. DevOps teams consist of development, operations and software testing members that work collaboratively to create software. Pipelines are used to facilitate the continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) of code, provide visibility into workflows, and enable teams to automate routine tasks.
DevOps pipelines are central to many organizations that are producing software. This vital nature makes monitoring and incident alerting key. If something goes wrong in a pipeline, it can have significant impact on a team’s ability to ensure application availability. To help avoid these threats, teams should ensure that any pipeline they deploy has effective alert management.
