Development and operations (DevOps) combine software development practices with IT operations. This aids in minimizing the launch time of any mobile or web applications. Three major processes are involved in DevOps that include Continuous Integration, Continuous Development, and Continuous Deployment. While developing any mobile or web applications, the framework is generated manually and the rest of the processes are fully automated.

Continuous integration (CI) helps with all the tests a mobile or web application undergoes. Continuous development (CD) is adept in identifying weak areas and automatically releasing its subsequent upgrades and updates. Continuous deployment deals with an effective distribution of all app updates. These 3 processes keep happening in a loop and form the crux of DevOps, which is an efficient mobile and web app development tool.


Every personnel in a software development life cycle has the responsibility for maintaining security. It aims to impart security into every level of app development; thus, bringing operations and development together with adequate security functions. The concept of DevSecOps was brought forward to thrash the norm of overlooking the application security. The benefits of DevSecOps are as follows:

• An automated app development reduces the chance of misadministration as well as mistakes.

• Automation reduces the need for security architects, as no manual work process is required in here.

JFrog Platform

JFrog platform, developed by JFrog, has developed a new multi-cloud and hybrid as well as a universal DevOps platform specially designed for delivering DevSecOps, CI/CD, and software distribution solutions: an all-in-one experience for the users. All major package formats, of the JFrog platform, are supported by JFrog Artifactory, which is a tool designed for storing the binary output of the build process for using them in deployment and distribution.

The automation process is done via REST (Representational State Transfer) APIs (Application Program Interfaces) as well as CLI (Command Line Interface) across the JFrog platform. Benefits include advanced speed, the efficiency with universal navigation, UX (User Experience) and metadata models across all the products. With unified administration and pipeline automation, JFrog services are integrated natively into the platform.

The new release comes with inclusion and full integration of JFrog pipelines, which is the organization's centralized and cloud-based DevOps pipeline automation along with orchestration solutions. The pipelines of the JFrog platform blends Shipple's CI/CD tool (DevOps).

JFrog Platform is regarded as the first multi-cloud, and hybrid as well as a universal DevOps platform. Unique and continuous software releases are delivered from any source to various destinations. Through this platform, DevOps delivers software by eliminating complexity along with increasing speed for continued success. All the leading tools are available in this platform and aids in empowering organizations through DevOps engineers and developers, which meets increased delivery requirements.
