What is DevOps?

DevOps is an approach to development that stresses communication, collaboration, and integration between software developers and IT professionals to improve IT agility.      

Collaboration between development and operations teams can have a massive impact on how your company functions and the products that are developed.  In large, these benefits are realized by the ability for DevOps to overcome inefficiencies.  A DevOps approach emphasizes constant activity during development, testing, integration, implementation and monitoring to deliver a never ending cycle of product-related activity.

  • Development tools
  • Collaboration between development and operations teams
  • Agile development methodology for continuous delivery

Key Drivers for a DevOps Approach

  • Increasing use of mobile devices
  • Increasing complexity of IT infrastructure (multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, on prem)
  • A need to drive greater collaboration between the development and operations teams
  • Pressure to release apps more quickly to meet customer demand or to enter new markets.
  • Increasing need to develop and deploy cloud native applications
  • Increased need for deploy simultaneously across a broader number of platforms
  • Pressure to reduce IT spend/maximize existing budgets

Aligning Development and Operations Teams

DevOps can remove the barriers between the development and operations teams and create a working environment more aligned for success. DevOps facilitates a solid partnership and continuous collaboration between the two teams; aligning them to drive shared goals.
