A compound of development (Dev) and operations (Ops), DevOps is the union of people, process, and technology to continually provide value to customers. 

But what does DevOps mean for teams? 

DevOps helps separate roles – development, IT operations, quality engineering, and security – to coordinate and collaborate in order to produce better, more reliable products and services. By adopting a DevOps culture along with DevOps practices and tools, teams gain the ability to better respond to customer needs, increase confidence in the products and services they build, and achieve business goals faster.

What are the benefits of DevOps? 

Teams that adopt DevOps culture, practices, and tools become high-performing, building better products and services faster for greater customer satisfaction. This also helps achieving such business goals as: accelerating time to market, adapting to the market and competition, maintaining system stability and reliability, improving the mean time to recovery.

How is DevOps culture different from the usual work culture?

The challenge of cultivating a DevOps culture requires deep changes in the way people work and collaborate. But when organizations commit to a DevOps culture, they can create the environment for high-performing teams to develop. Teams in DevOps culture are characterized with better collaboration, visibility and alignment, shorter release cycles, and continuous learning.
