COLLABORATION TOOLS (JIRA, ASANA, SLACK, TRELLO, ETC.)

This group of tools provides highly effective mutual cooperation by making the very process seamless and transparent. Collaboration tools serve the best options for making the whole process structured, easy to track and coordinate.

CONTINUOUS INTEGRATION TOOLS (JENKINS, BAMBOO, TEAMCITY, BUILDMASTR, ETC.)

The tools of this group are all about cloud security together with a compliance solution. They appear to be highly complex and versatile with a good portion of planning needed. However, building a profound CI-CD pipeline allows extracting great value and reaching more accurate outcomes as well as enhancing the quality of the applications under development.

BUILD TOOLS (GRADLE, MAVEN, MAKE, ETC.)

Building tools are certain programs a DevOps engineer uses to automate the working app’s creation based on source code. The building process includes the code compiling and linking together with a usable form packaging provision.

CODE HOSTING-REVIEW TOOLS (BITBUCKET, GITHUB, GITLAB, ETC.)

The tools mentioned above are handling code review (analysis, audit, etc.) together with a specific code hosting provision catering to individual project needs and configuration dimensions.

TESTING TOOLS (XRAY, PERFECTO, SELENIUM, ETC.)

These tools are dealing with automated testing and are aimed at the end-to-end automation process. Best practices, solid security as well as reliability are a pledge of a high-quality integrated unit.

MONITORING TOOLS (NAGIOS, GRAFANA, ZABBIX, SELENIUM, ETC.)

A proper set of monitoring tools creates a highly successful monitoring platform, which is focused on an application performance observation. They are dealing with configuring, deploying and managing a range of services/applications.

CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT TOOLS (PUPPET, ANSIBLE, CHEF, ETC.)

Configuration management tools are used to provision and manage data by using certain plain-text definition files; they are aimed at making changes and implementation processes much faster, predictable and scalable.

CONTAINERIZATION TOOLS (DOCKER, KUBERNETES, AWS ECS/EKS)

At this point, we are talking about self-contained apps to be easily launched and updated by an IT team. Containerization tools handle issues of wide scalability while dealing with both large and small businesses.
