DevOps, which comes from the words ‘Development’ and ‘Operation’, is a combination of different technical methods and a culture of cooperation between software development and IT operations, between people, processes and technologies. It describes a flexible structure that companies use to develop software among other things. Software is created, tested, released and improved in automated and optimised form.
CIAM systems like those from Nevis are installed between our customers’ users and the applications written by developers that serve these customers. A CIAM system must not impede the implementation of DevOps practices. Ideally, it should «get out of the way» of developers who are trying to offer continuous added value by rapidly deploying functions.
To implement DevOps best practices, Nevis has developed nevisAdmin 4, a comprehensive solution to provide agile, fast and reliable security infrastructures for digital offerings with the highest requirements. Reusable configuration templates map best practices for the most common use cases. This helps your teams increase efficiency and reduce costs. Extensive validation of configuration changes ensures ongoing compliance with your organisation's security policies and procedures.
