As deployments, integrations and developments get complex, tools come to the rescue of developers. From version control tools such as Github and git to monitoring tools such as Datadog and Scout. After technologies like containerization has gained traction among developers, microservices like kubernetes has only added to the complexities. While it could be said that it has eased the complexity from a top-down model. The complexities still persist as the number of microservices has increased, as the importance of security rises with DevOps crowd with the advent of DevSecOps.
