DevOps explained

DevOps is one of those overarching terms that encompasses a number of technologies and techniques. Some consider continuous integration and delivery as the cornerstone of DevOps. Others say you can’t keep pace with Agile development and deployment without automated processes that kick off tests, builds and performance alerts.

On the development side, some organizations are taking test-driven and behavior-driven approaches. They’re shifting testing to the left, to find defects more quickly so that better quality code is delivered.

DevOps, though, it not a one-size-fits-all solution. Organizations need to evaluate their processes, see where benefits could be derived, and implement those methods and technologies that deliver real value to the business.
