DevOps aims for better communication and collaboration between Development and IT Operations. The goal is to reduce friction and increase velocity to provide the agility needed to quickly take advantage of increasingly faster paced business demands.

What Is DevOps?

DevOps is the union of people, process, and products to enable continuous delivery of value to our end users. — Donovan Brown


DevOps (a clipped compound of “development” and “operations”) is a culture, movement or practice that emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes. It aims at establishing a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software, can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably.



DevOps (development and operations) is an enterprise software development phrase used to mean a type of agile relationship between Development and IT Operations. The goal of DevOps is to change and improve the relationship by advocating better communication and collaboration between the two business units.
