WHAT IS DEVOPS?
DevOps (a clipped compound of "development" and "operations") is a software development approach to work
that combines software development (Dev) with information technology operations (Ops). The goal of DevOps is to shorten the systems development life cycle while delivering software releases frequently, in close alignment with business objectives in a faster, better, and cost-efficient way. The DevOps approach to work is based on three critical success factors: cultural shift, improvement of practices and processes, and leverage of automation technologies.
Why get DevOps certified?
Due to the proven success of the DevOps approach to work, DevOps oriented roles have become a sought-after resource across industries by a constantly growing number of organisations, who need DevOps-savvy people to make the cultural shift, work comfortably in a DevOps environment, and manage an array of technology and tools — referred to collectively as "toolchain" for processes including, but not limited to, coding, building, testing, packaging, releasing, configuring and monitoring.
Software Development Methodology
Traditional (1970) structured, rigid software development methodology
Think -Silo’s, software developed as one single project -change is difficult
Agile (2001) methodology know for flexibility and fast development of software
Think – Developers develop software super fast but the agility stopped at the door of production
Devops (2009) collaboration between development and production professionals through all stages of a product or service lifecycle
Think – High-performing teams that meet to metrics for successful digital business models
Why DevOps Matters?
Digital Business Models are driving IT transformational Change. Old Waterfall approaches are being abandoned as Enterprises ask the question – What does DevOps mean for my IT organization, are my people ready for DevOps, and do my teams have the right skills to work in an Agile / DevOps environment.
Adopting DevOps concepts and principles requires a deep cultural and organizational change for organizations. Moving from siloed, waterfall driven systems to adopting Agile and Scrum practices first, and DevOps second means changing behavior. Old practices, ways of working make way for new approaches to doing work.
