What is DevOps?
DevOps is… a different way of thinking and a different way of behaving. When adopted, DevOps will improve the IT department’s time-to-market through better communication, collaboration, integration and automation.
DevOps is the intersection of development (software engineering), technology operations and quality assurance (QA). DevOps is as much about a different way of thinking as it is a different way of behaving. – DevOps Institute
You are probably very familiar with Agile, Lean and ITSM practices. And that’s good, because they are an integral component of DevOps. The catch is that Dev teams and Ops Teams historically take these steps independent of the other – and their conflicting goals compound the problem.
You see, development teams are rewarded to generate change, rapid change, and more change while operations teams are tasked with maintaining stability – and getting that stability often slows down the pace of change. These conflicting agendas lead to a dysfunctional culture that struggles to meet business goals.
DevOps adoption corrects these conflicts by breaking down the silos, improving communication and collaboration; giving life to one culture and shared goals that are aligned with business objectives.
