What is DevOps?

Development & Operations

DevOps refers to a process where a concept goes from creation and development to deployment in a production environment where it can provide value to the user. Examples of this could be adding a new aspect or feature to your software, or something as simple as creating a bug fix. These methods demand constant collaboration between development and operations teams and advancement is achieved with flexible provisioning and scalability.
An important concept to remember with DevOps is that which requires the most power will receive it through proper automation and self service. Speed and agility can be provided to software tests, builds and releases with no loss to reliability when developers collaborate with IT operations and code in a standard development environment. The majority of  business strategies cannot handle the demand of regular changes to code as well as the use of dynamic infrastructure. In order to stay competitive, change must be adopted and implemented. 

Being able to take needless work out of the system is more important than being able to put more work into the system.
