Here are the 6 Cs of DevOps.

1. Continuous Business Planning

This starts with identifying the skills, outcomes, and resources needed.

2. Collaborative Development

This starts with development sketch plan and programming.

3. Continuous Testing

Unit and integration testing help increase the efficiency and speed of the development.

4. Continuous Release and Deployment

A nonstop CD pipeline will help you implement code reviews and developer check-ins easily.

5. Continuous Monitoring

This is needed to monitor changes and address errors and mistakes spontaneously whenever they happen.

6. Customer Feedback and Optimization

This allows for an immediate response from your customers for your product and its features and helps you modify accordingly.

Taking care of these six stages will make you a good DevOps organization. This is not a must-have model but it is one of the more sophisticated models. This will give you a fair idea on the tools to use at different stages to make this process more lucrative for a software-powered organization. 

CD pipelines, CI tools, and containers make things easy. When you want to practice DevOps, having a microservices architecture makes more sense.
