What Are Devops Automation Tools And How To Manage Ci/Cd In A Saas Company?

DevOps is a combination of software development and operations approaches used to improve the development and deployment cycles of software applications. To achieve this, devops engineers adopt a more collaborative and iterative process that aims to improve the connectivity between humans and machines. In this way, they help to reduce the technical barriers that exist between developers and operators, as well as accelerate enterprise digital transformation.

Software development and operations are in continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) to accelerate innovation and reduce the time to market for new products. This is why devops automation tools, such as Jenkins, Kubernetes, Convox play a crucial role in the day-to-day life of a software organization. They provide continuous integration and delivery as well as enable management of the whole development and operation workflow, from idea to execution.

In a traditional software development environment, each developer would have to manually run multiple tools, install additional software, and keep track of numerous configuration settings. This is a complex and often-error-prone process that hinders productivity. With the aid of a few tools, a devops engineer can run the same set of commands that would take a team of people weeks to achieve.

The rise of the SaaS (Software as a Service) cloud computing model has revolutionized software development. Companies like Salesforce and Google provide the infrastructure, storage, and networking required by developers, freeing up time for innovation. As a result, SaaS companies, in general, have shorter development cycles and shorter project times. This has led to increased efficiency and productivity, as well as reduced costs. In addition, because each developer has full access to a large set of tools, they can easily spin up new projects, as well as take on more complex projects that would’ve taken a team of people longer to develop.

When transitioning to a SaaS company, you will notice a considerable reduction in the number of tools required. That being said, you must still manage your development workflow within the confines of the SaaS platform. In the majority of cases, this will involve setting up basic configurations for your tools within the platform and integrating integrations where possible.

After you have configured and launched your tools, you can begin integrating them into your day-to-day work. To do this, you will need to create plugins or extensions for your tools within the platform. Then, you need to begin thinking about how you will use them daily. For example, if you use Slack for team communication, you can integrate your Slack account so that you can have messaging, file sharing, and commenting, all in one place.

This is a biggie. When you have everything in one place, it becomes much easier to find and review information, as well as collaborate with others. Also, when you start using a tool, you will begin to see how it can enhance your work. For example, if you are a developer and you use a code review tool to review your code, you will notice a significant increase in your productivity. This is because the tool can tell you about any potential bugs, missing requirements, and the like, all while keeping track of the code for you.

Managing CD/CI in a SaaS Company

While many companies offer DevOps as a service within their SaaS cloud computing platform, they typically do not offer the whole nine yards. This is because, in most cases, you will need an existing team of people to manage and deploy your code. As a result, if you have never developed and operated your own software infrastructure, then it may be a bit overwhelming to try and manage it all on your own. This is where Jenkins comes in. The job of a DevOps engineer within a SaaS company is to take care of all the infrastructure and deployments for the different products associated with the company. This can involve anything from setting up and maintaining environments for developers to creating new apps and features for the company’s customers to try out.

As a result, being a DevOps engineer within a SaaS company isn’t a panacea for all your infrastructure-related problems. You will still need to diagnose and solve some of the underlying issues that are preventing you from being as effective as you can be. However, by deploying and integrating several key tools, you will significantly reduce the time it takes to fix problems and accelerate your team’s transformation effort.

Why Should You Use a SaaS Company?

When transitioning to a SaaS company, you will notice a number of benefits. First, you can get access to a huge library of tools. In many cases, this will include tools that are specific to a certain industry, such as financial services or healthcare, which may be difficult to find in a traditional environment. Second, being a SaaS company means that you can provide developers with the tools they need, without having to worry about storage, licensing, or maintenance.

This also frees up time for your developers to focus on more important things, such as innovation and creating new products for your company’s customers. Third, you can monitor and control how they use the tools, whether it’s for development, testing, or deployment. This helps you to ensure that they are always using the tools in the safest, most effective manner. Finally, you can also rest assured that your tools are always up to date with the latest technology.


For anyone who has ever worked with computers, managing a team of developers, and/or developed their own applications, knowing how to effectively utilize tools, in this case Jenkins, can be very helpful. Even if you are brand new to all of this, setting up your tools, in particular, Jenkins, can be easier than you think. With a little bit of planning, research, and setup, you will be able to achieve more in less time. This means that you can get ahead of the game and avoid many pitfalls, as well as integrate more effectively with your team and customers. Most importantly, you will be enhancing their productivity, which will, in turn, benefit your company and its bottom line.



Boeing delivers first 787 Dreamliner since 2021 after manufacturing defects

Boeing Delivers First 787 Dreamliner Since 2021 After Manufacturing Defects

Boeing delivered its first 787 Dreamliner in more than a year on Wednesday, ending a pause in jetliner deliveries triggered by a series of manufacturing defects.

American Airlines has taken the first new delivery from Boeing’s 787 factory in South Carolina, carrier CEO Robert Isom said in an Instagram post.

Delivery is an important milestone for Boeing. Planes are a key source of cash for the maker, and most of a plane’s price is paid on delivery – although the company has had to compensate customers for the delays.

Deliveries have been suspended for much of the past two years. Boeing said earlier this year that production defects and a drop in production while waiting for delivery would cost it $5.5 billion.

Dreamliner customers like American and United Airlines have had to do without their new planes, which are often used for long-haul international routes, amid an upsurge in demand for such trips this year.

Among the issues discovered was tiny, incorrect spacing in some parts of the fuselage.

“Every action and every decision influences our customers’ trust in Boeing – we build trust one aircraft at a time,” Stan Deal, CEO of Boeing’s Commercial Aircraft Unit, wrote in a memo to staff on Wednesday. “We will continue to take the time necessary to ensure that each one meets our highest quality standards.”

The Federal Aviation Administration said earlier this week that it had cleared Boeing to resume deliveries, which were due to begin this week.

Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen toured the 787 plant last Thursday and met with FAA safety inspectors about steps to improve production quality, the agency said more early this week.

India To Scrap Airfare Caps From End Of August

The Ministry of Civil Aviation will remove the lower and upper limit on fares starting August 31, the ministry said in a circular today.

This would mean that air fares would once again be regulated by the market and competition would become fiercer.

The government had put fare caps in place at the start of the COVID pandemic to avoid any sudden increases or decreases in airfares.

ASK IRA: Is it big or bust with Heat salary ballast?

Avatar Of Rajesh Khanna



Ask Ira: Is It Big Or Bust With Heat Salary Ballast?

Q: What is more important: Trading Duncan Robinson now for a strong power forward like Jae Crowder, or keeping him as a trade piece for a big fish down the road? – Bob, Davie.

A: Which is why I downplayed Duncan Robinson (if the Suns even would want to take on such a long-term contract) in yesterday’s response to the question about Jae Crowder. If the Heat are going to make a big move that does not involve Bam Adebayo, Jimmy Butler or Kyle Lowry, then they have to hold on to Duncan’s contract as salary ballast. Similarly, the Heat are not in position to randomly deal away a first-round pick (or two) when it comes to a trade smaller than for a legitimate or potential star. So, yes, I agree – you wait. The question then becomes whether you hold on to Tyler Herro for a similarly significant move. If so, that means you have chosen not to sweat the small stuff at the moment.

Q: Ira, the Heat didn’t want to sign P.J. Tucker for $10 million a year for three years, however they may end up paying the same or more for Jae Crowder if they bring him back in a trade. Is Jae an upgrade over P.J.? – Carl, Kapaa, Hawaii.

A: This has more to do with the intricacies of the salary cap than valuations of the players. If the Heat were to bring in Jae Crowder at his $10.2 million for this season, they would not be hard capped, because it would be via trade. If the Heat signed P.J. Tucker for that same amount for 2022-23, they would have been hard capped, because it would have been a free-agent signing. It doesn’t matter if that makes sense, it’s just the rules. And I happen to believe Jae would be excellent as a P.J. replacement, if the cap-o-nomics could work.

Q: Ira, in looking at your recent list of eligible free agents,. there are several players that could help the Heat. Pat Riley, Andy Elisburg, please, please do not sign Udonis Haslem to the last spot. – Joel.

A: The open offer has already been extended. So this no longer is a Pat Riley or Andy Elisburg decision; it is a Udonis Haslem decision. And solely a Udonis Haslem decision.

Protest camp in Sri Lanka evacuated after 4 months in action against leaders

Protest Camp In Sri Lanka Evacuated After 4 Months In Action Against Leaders

Demonstrations began on April 9 to protest against shortages of basic necessities. (Case)


Protesters in Sri Lanka who toppled the previous government announced on Wednesday they were dismantling their main protest site near the president’s office following a crackdown on their leaders.

The group led by university students and left-wing parties said it was clearing its tents along the Galle Face seafront promenade in the capital.

A spokesman said they also withdrew four legal challenges to a police order ordering them to leave the area which claimed their tents were an obstacle to nearby hotels.

Activists were seen tearing down their tents and removing other structures they had erected to support their struggle against the administration.

The demonstrations began on April 9 to protest against shortages of essentials such as fuel, food and medicine in Sri Lanka’s worst economic crisis.

They culminated when tens of thousands of people poured into Colombo and stormed Gotabaya Rajapaksa’s presidential palace on July 9, forcing him to flee and eventually resign.

Days after Rajapaksa fled to Singapore and announced his resignation, troops evicted the protesters occupying the palace and the prime minister’s home and office.

Security forces have been accused of using excessive force to evict protesters, with more than 80 people sustaining injuries that required hospitalization.

Since then, dozens of activists have been arrested for damaging state property.

A prominent labor leader, Joseph Stalin, was released on bail on Monday following international criticism of his arrest last week for causing damages worth $90.

Rajapaksa’s successor, Ranil Wickremesinghe, drew a distinction between “protesters” and “rioters” and promised firm action against “all troublemakers”.

Shortly after protesters swarmed the palace, there were social media posts showing them frolicking in the pool and bouncing on four-poster beds inside the sprawling compound.

But protesters also handed authorities around 17.5 million rupees ($46,000) in cash found in one of the rooms.
