We’ve already discussed the benefits of leveraging DevOps in your contact center. Now we’ll cover how to get started. The transition can be challenging, especially for enterprises with rigid processes, but the positives greatly outweigh the negatives.

Requirements for a smooth DevOps adoption

A collaborative and supportive corporate culture

Budget silos and disengaged stakeholders are some of the biggest barriers. Many organizations fail because they don’t identify which areas should move to DevOps. They move them in spirit but not in budget or accountability. If the necessary cultural and technological investments aren’t made, the transition to DevOps will either fizzle out or blow up in everyone’s face. No one needs that.

Customer experience must be the top priority

Documenting user journeys through your applications early on will be extremely helpful when moving to test automation. This will help you minimize rollbacks and service interruptions that cause unnecessary delays.

Testing, testing, testing, and more testing

Real-time active monitoring and analytics will help accelerate decision and avoid bottlenecks. This also serves as an early warning system in your production environment. You’ll know when to push forward with rollbacks or emergency patches. Modular design and delivery packages allow you to perform faster deployments more frequently.

You’ll also need to know how and when to scale; that’s done through ongoing scaleability analysis.

Adopting DevOps the wrong way can cause widespread damage

It’s common knowledge that recruiting new customers is much harder than keeping existing ones. Making your customer service processes as streamlined as possible should be a top priority. A well-planed DevOps implementation will help you keep your existing customers happy.
