What is DevOps?
As the name suggests – DevOps is a combination of Development and Operations that help improve an organization’s systems development process. It’s an engineering practice for software development that is focused more on the people and process of an organization, than the specific tools or technologies that the engineers choose to utilize.
It has a massive impact on the engineering culture of collaboration, ownership and accelerating the software development lifecycle from concept to production, consisting of Development, Testing, Deployment, Operations.
DevOps shortens the development lifecycle while delivering features, fixes and functionality frequently in close alignment with business objectives. Read more about DevOps here.
