A product or a service leads to revenue if it meets the needs of its audience. So, it is reasonable to think that you must track software development in order to monetize.  Also, you can discover new market segments and identify new revenue.


From idea to deployment, this is what DevOps does for your business. Using DevOps tooling enables delivery, tracking, and visibility into planning and execution.

Automating manual effort for DevOps team members can create an ideal development environment. It is also a good way to minimize costs, reduce risk and save time.

But automating the process does not necessarily translate into higher profitability. You might miss culture management shifts, forget about the team's dynamics or miss new market segments and customer's interests.

You can have tools but not make good use of your resources.

  1. 📈 Start with a sprint. If you are at the beginning of a project, it's best to do a sprint workshop. It's also essential to involve, from the beginning, the whole team. With a sprint, you can formulate and solve important problems before doing the actual work. It saves time and money. A sprint also helps increase communication and collaboration between software development, IT operations, and product management.

    So, before making any decisions, make sure that everyone is on the same page. Mindset opens the scene.
