What is DevOps?

DevOps is the efficient integration of software development, quality assurance and IT operations, which traditionally formed individual, closed teams.

DevOps solves a bottleneck problem related to agile development. When agile developers produce new software or code updates with a higher clock frequency, the conventional operations teams have difficulties testing the software and putting it into operation in a timely manner and the added value of rapid development is lost. The agile approach made the software design and creation process more iterative and flexible, but this approach did not extend over the entire software development lifecycle (SDLC) through to deployment.

As a cultural or philosophical approach, DevOps is dedicated to continuous improvement, collaboration and transparency. IT processes are viewed holistically with a view to value creation. The focus is not on individual task silos, but on the entire flow from the first concept to the available product or the finished function. All processes in between are optimized with the aim of working faster and more profitably. High-performance DevOps teams not only enable faster code iterations and deployments, but also overall shorter time-to-market for new concepts, fewer bugs and a more stable infrastructure.

In the following, we provide an overview of the most important DevOps concepts and provide starting points for introducing a DevOps culture in your own company.
