It is difficult to break down barriers of communication and create trust among all teams involved in the delivery of software and technology.

This article will focus on the top DevOps tools for automation, CI/CD, and orchestration. It will also give you a list of our Top 15 DevOps tools for 2022.
How to Choose the right DevOps tools
DevOps cannot be ordered in a box. There is no one tool or vendor that can support all aspects of a DevOps team. There are a few key points to remember when selecting tools and products that will best suit your company’s specific DevOps goals. These goals will vary depending on the environment, structure, and operations of your organization.
There are some things you should keep in mind when choosing the right tools to fit any project or organization.
- Application and technology infrastructure — What are your software/application platforms? Which infrastructure technologies are used to power these platforms? Is the tool compatible with applications or infrastructure hosted in the cloud, local, hybrid, or hybrid environments?
- Developer process Integration — Does the tool work with your existing development tools, IDEs, and/or project management platforms?
- Open and broad integration — The tool can be integrated with other DevOps pipeline technology such as:
- Testing frameworks (e.g., Selenium, TestNG, Jest, JUnit, Mocha, etc.)
- Communication platforms (e.g., Slack, Teams, etc.)
- Systeme for project management (e.g. Jira)
- CI & CD (Jenkins CircleCI, GitHub).
- Scalability — Make sure that your team is able to use the tool easily and that it can scale with your company’s growth.
- Licensing vs. cost models — Does the tool have an open-source license or a commercial license? Be sure to look at the costs of licensing. While free tools are often available, they can be costly in terms of the cost of licensing and the time required to maintain them. Is the product licensed per seat or per tick? A simple and straightforward licensing process combined with an honest approach towards non-license-related operational expenses makes planning easier. This will make it possible to roll out your DevOps pipeline across teams and projects.
