The most impactful innovations that can be applied to DevOps is automation. Automation can help streamline and speed up processes such as code testing, deployment, and monitoring. Automation also helps reduce human error and increase accuracy in these tasks. Additionally, automation can help improve collaboration between developers and operations teams by providing a common platform for both teams to work from.
Another innovation that can be applied to DevOps is containerization. Containerization allows applications to be packaged together with all their dependencies so they can be deployed quickly and easily across multiple environments. This makes it easier for developers to test their code in different environments without having to worry about compatibility issues or other potential problems. Additionally, containers make it easier for operations teams to manage applications by allowing them to scale up or down depending on demand.
Finally, cloud-based solutions are becoming increasingly popular in the DevOps space as well.
