The Rise of DevOps: With IT-driven innovation ruling the roost, the critical differentiating factor for organizations, irrespective of the size and the type, is agility in delivering IT solutions and how to run them cost-effectively and reliably, leading to the rise of DevOps culture, and consequently, the big demand for it. The demand can be attributed to the fact that DevOps helps overcome the barriers and priorities that are at odds between operation and development teams including application, project costs, functional and performance requirements in software engineering. DevOps helps in team collaboration, reliable, safe and rapid production by delivering systems and to operate, manage and support them more efficiently than before. DevOps is a more a culture that creates a collaborative working culture and promotes adoption of overlapping objectives aimed at delivering IT services, offering value to any business. DevOps is closely interlinked with a set of techniques commonly called ‘Continuous Delivery’ which is a combination of different concepts: continuous deployment, continuous integration, and lean production. The main feature of DevOps is to push automation and monitoring at all levels of software engineering, from integration, releasing, deployment, testing, and infrastructure management. DevOps is characterized by increased deployment frequency, shorter development cycles, faster time to market, consistent quality approach, more dependable releases, and elimination of manual processes replaced by automation tools, closely aligned with business objectives. The key advantage of the DevOps approach is to align the two transparency-contained siloes. This means faster business operation through system delivery, lowered risk of production changes, thanks to shorter development iterations and automated non-functional testing. Over and above, operational objectives are supported by automation of service management and a thorough understanding of the various levels of the production environment stack that help mitigate risks and fix production problems. IT service delivery is no different than a production line – the delivery speed and the product’s finished quality is generally determined by the most vulnerable link in the chain. Until we find career progression and tech education catching up with both the sides – technical and operational, IT companies need to hire experienced DevOps experts. It promises and delivers much, but should be reinforced by the right mix of skills sets. In recent times, there is an urgent need for an innovative and highly DevOps SMEs especially in fast paced business environment who can ensure stability, reliability, and quality of all production services and services whilst employing the best practices of DevOps.
More often than not, the question that beats us always once you are done developing your high budget, feature-rich dynamic web portal is whether Google and other search engines will crawl and index the pages of your website freely the way you want. Is web app built of Angular SEO Friendly? Until 2014, Google bots had problems crawling properly those pages with Java scripts, but it was announced later that they can crawl and index JS pages effectively. This means developers do not have to build any unique layout for rendering the HTML pages. However, the same cannot be said for other search engines and crawlers. Coming to Angular Universal, they are built with the ability to perceive better overall UI experience, increased page load performance, Server-side pre-rendering for better access of the content by Search Engines and correct display of preview image of the app on Facebook, Twitter and other social media apps. The Single Page Applications (SPAs) offer improved user-experience. However, SEOs will have a tough nut to crack in terms of optimising the site for search engines. Besides enhanced loading speed and experience, Angular has lot a catching up to do in terms of SEO performance, which is quite usual for this framework type. Therefore, it is up to the SEOs to make the site as accessible as possible for the bots in crawling and indexing the site: The Snapshot: One of the most effective techniques of Angular Universal SEO is prerendering – or producing an HTML snapshot that is to be dished out in the source code instead of expecting Google and other search bots to completely render the Angular web pages. This will fix the issue of Google’s inability to crawl and index page content that is hidden behind a click including the Angular Universal content. This is one of the best methods to allow various search engines such as Yandex, Baidu and Bing to see the Angular Universal content on your web page. This will also allow you to view the source code and content instead of wanting to utilize Chrome browser’s inspect element functionality. URL Structure: Another technique of ensuring Google crawls the pages of Angular Universal site is to have a search engine as well as user friendly URL, which is achieved by doing away with hash in the URLs for complete rendering of URLs in Angular Universal. To form SEO-centric URL, use $locationProvider and $routeProvider to change the Angular routing to HTML5 mode. XML Sitemaps: Once you’re done with the URLs, you must ensure you generate XML sitemaps that have your canonical URLs in them. Next, you need to submit the XML sitemaps in Google Search Console (Webmaster) and Bing Webmaster Tools. This is considered an important SEO process as it will crawl whatever URLs you’ve wanted to and index them.
