Using Infrastructure as Code (IaC) can help create consitancy across resources and helps to increase security, reduce cost and time to deploy as well as reduce time during troubleshooting.
For developers that are given the rights to build their own playground it helps by letting them choose fixed deployment without having to set up details in the infrastructure.
But how do you choose the right tool for the job? What do you need to take the right decision when selecting your company’s tools and software? It’s imperative that you understand the strength and weaknesses of the different languages to be used. Make sure you make a choice from data and knowledge, not hype. Make sure there is a preferred development language to be used and build the competency on this.
To make sure that automation in any way can be helpful and present value there need to be a governance platform available. The standards have to be set and then followed for the automation to give effect. IaC is not a design, it’s a programmatic approach to a problem that needs solving.
At NIC 20/20 Vision IaC will be presented in several sessions across different cloud providers. Getting to understand how this approach can help save you from tedious and boring repetitive tasks, keeping up with compliance and bridge the gap between developers need and IT’s capacity – this is what NIC is all about.
