Most leading organizations use DevOps for shorter and frequent development cycles, reduced deployment failures, and reduced recovery times. These core tasks take up DevOps engineers’ most of the time, leaving less time for other menial, yet equally important tasks such as data backups and creating and managing incident tickets. One way to address this problem is to automate these repetitive tasks.
While it’s always a good idea to apply automation wherever applicable and necessary, a considerable amount of configuration and code development is required to automate even a small part of these tasks. A more efficient solution to this is using an integration platform (iPaaS), which supports all of the web applications used by your organization and provides all the necessary configurations to integrate those web applications in a very short span of time. This saves your DevOps engineers time while increasing their efficiency and reducing technological debt.
