What is DevOps?

Software development is the process of creating applications and frameworks resulting in products and services. IT operations are the people, processes and technologies associated with delivering products and services. Software development involves constant change; i.e., new features, patches, updates, etc. IT operations involves maintaining a stable infrastructure to run the technology. Because constant change is the enemy of stable infrastructure, there has historically been a wall between software development and IT operations … until now. DevOps is the combination of software development and IT operations. DevOps seeks to create and maintain stable IT infrastructure that is resilient to constant change. DevOps enables communication, feedback and tooling between development and operations. DevOps promotes automation, collaboration, consistency, repeatability, testing, versioning and visibility. Net: The goal of DevOps is stable IT infrastructure to continuously push new code to production more easily and frequently.
