Companies in Azerbaijan need to restructure their software development cycle - expert
BAKU, Azerbaijan, Sept. 8
By Fidan Babayeva - Trend:
Companies in Azerbaijan need to restructure their software development cycle due to the growth of digital services, development of technologies, and their role for the business, Head of the engineering department of PASHA Bank OJSC Vusal Khalilov told Trend.
First of all, this concerns the development methodology, which determines the culture of interaction in the organization and relations with the consumers of these services, and then architectural and other technical innovations, Khalilov noted.
The application of methods previously used only in tech companies in Silicon Valley is now becoming available in other industries, in particular in the financial sector for which digital transformation is a vital factor, he said.
In this case, it is worth highlighting a method called DevOps, through which many steps of assembling are automatized, applications are deployed and maintained, significantly reducing the time for the final product to enter the market, said the PASHA Bank’s representative.
“Currently, it is enough to have motivation and time to implement technologies. It is much more important to introduce not innovation for the sake of innovation, but what benefits the organization. It seems to me that the DevOps method, if not completely, then at least partially, should be applied in all organizations that want to increase their efficiency,'' Khalilov added.
Programs for digitalization and development of communication services are the basis that is currently being implemented and are aimed at turning Azerbaijan into a regional digital center.
DevOps (Development Operation) is a set of practices for improving the efficiency of the development and operation of software through their continuous integration and active interaction of specialized experts using automation tools.
