Here's a very general (under)statement:


IT departments play a huge role in a company's success.

No, scratch that.

IT departments are an incredible key factor for a (every!) company's stability, success and excellence, and are probably the most important part in any company with some sort of digital presence. 

They make sure all systems function in the most optimal manner, constantly checking alerts, assessing risks and so much more.

With so much change around, IT challenges are growing and changing , compelling IT professionals to learn new systems, methodologies, and tools to help them with this evolving environment, with probably the biggest skilled worker shortage in the history of mankind.

But who are those people behind the driving force of the business? who are those heroes behind the monitors and dashboards, working day in day out to ensure the stability and seamless operation of complex IT systems?
Who are they, what do they do, what do they look like and what's the meaning of 42??! (not really).

DevOps: Changing the World one log at a time

DevOps is where development and operation remain the gears of control for any software/IT company, where constant monitoring and automation remain the integral parts of the system development life cycle. They are, literally, the backbone of the whole company and their practices are highly crucial and influential on the overall structure of the team. It is all about their data management skills and their strong grasp on automation tools.

Yes, they are Sys admins who can code flexibly to raise scalability and provide grounds for SREs to play on. From coding, building and testing to packaging, releasing and monitoring the systems, DevOps ensures high dependency on the skill set of the people who are involved. They are well-communicated and practice collaboration to make sure that their work can be as risk-free and flexible as possible.

 SREs: This is what happen when a software engineer is tasked with operations

SREs play one of the most crucial roles in establishing the development utopia that a company wishes to achieve. Their bread and butter is their ability to blend in diverse major coding and development tasks within a cloud of software operations. SRE is more like a set of paradigms that operate as a backbone for the company to make sure customer satisfaction remains the core of its operational philosophy.

As a subset of DevOps, this discipline ensures the development of ultra-scalable and highly reliable software systems. If you’re wondering what distinguishes them from other back-end engineers, it’s their ability to turn the odds in favor of availability, reliability and scalability so that companies won’t whine about recoding and spending a myriad of hours redeveloping the same kind of systems while wasting huge sums of money just on a solution that had already been implemented in the past.

In honor of DevOps and SREs, we conducted a short salary survey, summarizing 2017 H1, shedding some more light on who DevOps/SREs are. And here are the results!
