Development Operations—DevOps

DevOps, driven by organizational necessity to rapidly produce and deploy software products and services, is the integration of development, quality assurance, and operations to create a culture promoting collaboration, communication and facilitating rapid value delivery. DevOps culture includes communication, collaboration, and sharing. DevOps technologies focus upon automation for efficiency and to remove human error while increasing quality and reliability. DevOps uses lean principles to enable higher cycle frequency along with metrics to measure, refine and improve delivery and processes. Implementing these organizational and technical changes is challenging and requires expert training and support.
