DevOps is a cultural shift that revolutionized software development by bringing together and automating the work of developers and the operations team.

Founded on a principle of close collaboration, communication, and shared responsibility, DevOps enables faster delivery of higher quality software to meet consumers growing demand for innovative new features and uninterrupted and reliable service.

The DevOps methodology stretches beyond the two traditionally siloed teams; it integrates into the software development cycle input from infrastructure engineering, security, risk of failure management, and the consumers. By cultivating a true customer feedback loop, DevOps provides businesses with the ability to adapt quickly to end users' needs.

In traditional software development processes, the development team would build large code sequences before deploying them to production. By the time the operations team tested and released a new feature, the end user's needs might have changed entirely. The need for faster and reliable new releases was unmistakable. With DevOps, smaller code fragments are merged into the code base and automatically integrated, tested, and deployed to production. DevOps teams can release new features and small updates daily or even several times per day.

Despite its proven benefits for businesses, DevOps adoption remains problematic for many companies. A lack of understanding of the culture and processes, talent scarcity, and budget often deter company executives from implementing DevOps best practices. However, in the long run, companies that adopt the DevOps methodology will benefit from fewer code errors, faster time to market, increased productivity and profitability, and end user satisfaction.

"DevOps emphasizes transparency, shared ownership, open communication, and cross-team collaboration."

One of the most prominent challenges in building a successful DevOps team is a lack of understanding of the culture.

Because DevOps emphasizes transparency, shared ownership, open communication, and cross-team collaboration, it requires an organizational culture that aligns with this set of values.

It takes a conscious leadership effort to reevaluate a company's culture. Without it, investing in tools and hiring experienced engineers will ultimately lead to increased cost and employee frustration. 




DevOps can benefit companies of all sizes and industries that rely on digital or digitally-enabled products or services.


Foster a collaborative environment in which professionals share ideas and collectively solve problems


Promote end-to-end accountability and reject silos


Commit to continuous improvement, no matter what the situation is


Automate as much as possible


Cultivate a customer-centric focus to deliver features that satisfy users' needs


Don't fear failure, learn from it instead
