DevOps is a combination of the terms “development” and “operations” which represents the shared approach to tasks performed by a company's application development and IT operations teams. It is a set of philosophies, practices and tools that helps organisations to promote better communication and collaboration between the two teams and to deliver applications and services faster. Where software development and IT operations teams would otherwise work in disconnected siloes, DevOps brings them together.
The philosophy came from agile and there are four key principles of DevOps:
- Automation of the software development lifecycle
- Collaboration and communication
- Continuous improvement and minimisation of waste
- Hyperfocus on user needs with short feedback loops
DevOps can be beneficial to businesses because it can result in faster and easier releases, better team efficiency (thanks to improved collaboration) and increased security and higher quality products. This improvement in quality and reliability ensures happy customers and a profitable business. It's clear that it plays a crucial role in business so now is a great time to upskill into this lucrative role.
