What DevOps Is Not!

  • Watch

  • Abstract

    The definition of DevOps is a highly contested topic. Despite what some will lead you to believe DevOps is not just a set of tools, nor is it merely a focus on achieving continuous integration, continuous delivery, or continuous deployment. DevOps practices enable a team to achieve the level of coordination and understanding necessary to realize all of these goals, as well as to automate infrastructure, testing, and deployment. Specifically, DevOps provides organizations a way to achieve

    •    collaboration between project teams and roles
    •    infrastructure as code
    •    automation of tasks, processes, and workflows
    •    continuous monitoring of applications and infrastructure

    Business value drives DevOps development. Without a DevOps mindset, organizations often find their operations, development, and testing teams working toward short-sighted incentives of creating their infrastructure, test suites, or product increment.

    In this webinar, we’ll talk about DevOps, its common misconceptions and roadblocks, and how you can use DevOps to help your organization reach new heights of efficiency and productivity.
