DevOps is the practice of operations and development engineers participating together in the entire service lifecycle, from design through the development process to production support.
Implementing DevOps has a range of benefits, including:
- Collaboration and trust. Culture is the main success factor for DevOps. Creating a culture of shared responsibility, transparency and faster feedback is the foundation of high-performing DevOps teams.
- Faster publications and a smarter way to work. Speed is everything in today’s world. The ability to rapidly create new features and new services means businesses can stay ahead of their competition, and respond faster to what their customers want. DevOps teams publish with greater frequency, quality and stability.
- Accelerate resolution time. The team with the fastest feedback cycle is the team that thrives. With full transparency and fluid communication, DevOps teams minimize downtime and resolve issues faster than ever before.
- Better management of unforeseen work. Unplanned work is a reality faced by all teams, a reality that almost always has an impact on team productivity. With established processes and a clear definition of priorities, development teams and operations can better manage unforeseen work, without neglecting planned work.
