Learn how DevOps unifies people, process and technology to bring better products to customers faster

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

What does DevOps mean for teams? DevOps enables formerly siloed roles—development, IT operations, quality engineering and security—to coordinate and collaborate to produce better, more reliable products. 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 applications they build and achieve business goals faster.

The benefits of DevOps:

Teams that adopt DevOps culture, practices and tools become high-performing, building better products faster for greater customer satisfaction. This improved collaboration and productivity is also integral to achieving business goals like these.

DevOps and the application lifecycle:

DevOps influences the application lifecycle throughout its plan, develop, deliver and operate phases. Each phase relies on the others and the phases are not role-specific. In a true DevOps culture, each role is involved in each phase to some extent.

DevOps tools:

Teams have many DevOps tools to help them facilitate a DevOps culture in their organization. Most teams rely on several tools, building custom toolchains that fit their needs for each phase in the application lifecycle. While adopting a specific tool or technology is not the same as adopting DevOps, when the DevOps culture is present and the processes are defined, people can implement and streamline DevOps practices if they choose the proper tools. Get the tools to put DevOps into practice:

DevOps and the cloud:
Cloud adoption has fundamentally transformed the way teams are building, deploying and operating applications. Together with the adoption of DevOps, teams now have greater opportunity to improve their practices and better serve their customers better.

Cloud agility:

With the ability to quickly provision and configure multi-region cloud environments with unlimited resources, teams gain agility in deploying their apps. Now, instead of having to buy, configure and maintain physical servers, teams create complex cloud environments in minutes, then shut them down when they’re no longer needed.


As more and more applications use container technology, Kubernetes is becoming the industry solution for orchestrating containers at scale. Automating the processes of building and deploying containers via CI/CD pipelines and monitoring these containers in production are becoming essential practices in the age of Kubernetes.

Serverless computing:

With most of the overhead of managing infrastructure moved to the cloud provider, teams can focus on their apps rather than the underlying infrastructure. Serverless computing offers the ability to run applications without configuring and maintaining servers. Some options reduce the complexity and risk of deployment and operations.
