DevOps is the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals, which delivers business value faster through software.
The origin of the term “DevOps” gained popularity during a series of DevOps Days that began in 2009 in Belgium. DevOps provides companies a competitive advantage by delivering better software, faster and by enabling sustained innovation, such as Netflix’s success story of How Netflix Manages Security in the Age of DevOps by Racheal King of the Wall Street Journal in June 2015.
“DevOps represents a change in IT culture, focusing on rapid IT service delivery through the adoption of agile, lean practices in the context of a system-oriented approach. DevOps emphasizes people (and culture), and seeks to improve collaboration between operations and development teams. DevOps implementations utilize technology — especially automation tools that can leverage an increasingly programmable and dynamic infrastructure from a life cycle perspective.” Source: Gartner.
