Process automation can be considered to be one of the most valuable applications of data science and machine learning to businesses. Each business, whether large or small, has certain processes that are crucial to keeping their business running. Many of these processes were intentionally designed and implemented right from conception to execution, whereas others might have been developed as and when the requirement for them arose, usually by merging together groups of related tasks.

A few of the usual examples of such processes include:

  • Processing orders received from customers
  • Buying of goods and services for the business

What is DevSecOps?

DevSecOps is a methodology of implementing security practices within the DevOps processes. DevSecOps involves creating a ‘security as code’ culture with an emphasis on seamless and flexible collaboration between release engineers and security teams. The DevSecOps approach, similar to DevOps, is aimed at formulating new solutions that cater to the complex software development processes within an agile framework.

DevSecOps is a necessary and natural solution to the bottleneck effect caused by older security models which impacts the modern continuous delivery pipeline. The aim is to close the traditional gap between IT and security while making certain that…
