5 Companies That Are Redefining DevOps

What started as a cultural shift to bring developers and operations together, has transformed to become the most important aspect of modern software development lifecycle. From early-stage startups to large enterprises, DevOps is now an integral part of project planning and delivery.

Embracing DevOps is not as straightforward as purchasing or subscribing to the right set of software tools. From source code management to monitoring, there are dozens of tools that are available to customers. If choosing the right combination of the toolchain is complex, integrating them to achieve the desired outcome is equally challenging. Implementing DevOps is no less complicated than rolling out a comprehensive enterprise application integration (EAI) project. Both the initiatives deal with integrating well-established, disparate, and isolated environments, which form the core of businesses.

To address the complexity and challenges of implementing DevOps, a new breed of companies has evolved in the recent past. They attempt to ease the pain involved in embracing the DevOps culture at various stages.

Here is a list of 5 such startups that are redefining DevOps for businesses:


Founded by veterans in the field of system integration and software delivery, CloudMunch started as a platform to deliver DevOps as a Service. It started as a SaaS offering with support for a variety of tools spanning from source code control to build automation to testing to deployment to monitoring. CloudMunch supports mainstream IaaS and PaaS such as AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and Heroku as deployment targets. Like most of its peers and competitors in the market, CloudMunch embraced Docker to deliver agility and flexibility to customers.  The latest version of the platform comes with built-in analytics that provides visibility and insights into the DevOps process. The concept of templates enables the integration of existing tools used by enterprises.

CloudMunch is one of the most robust DevOps platforms available in the market. Enterprises can deploy it within the datacenter while startups and mid-sized business can sign-up for the SaaS flavor of the platform. The company is attempting to be more than just a CI/CD platform in the cloud.  It differentiates itself by delivering comprehensive insights across each phase of application lifecycle management.
