What is DevOps?
A portmanteau of development and operations, DevOps unites a company's development and operations departments in more than just name: The entire product lifecycle becomes a cycle in which cross-functional teams continuously work together to improve the product. The prerequisite for this is a change in the corporate culture that is traditonally based on dividing development and operations and their respective tasks and responsibilities. DevOps is designed to improve the standard of cooperation between these two areas in order to increase the speed of development and delivery.
From Agile to DevOps
DevOps follows the same strategy as Agile: to continuously improve a product through iterative and continuous processes. Unlike Agile, it focuses on the entire product lifecycle -- from the planning phase to the operational phase. The cloud not only enables automation, but provides digital flexibility through tailored scalability.
Large digitalized companies, such as Amazon and Netflix, have already recognized the benefits of DevOps. They use cloud computing for scalable development and operating environments so that they can adapt flexibly to required service capacities. Thanks to its automation possibilities, the cloud is a particularly popular choice in the DevOps methodology for outsourcing tedious processes and creating more time for innovation.
Cultural change and DevOps transformation
DevOps is deeply embedded in the corporate culture. This is why a fundamental change in perspective among employees is required to successfully transform a company. A successful DevOps culture is built on courage, experimentation, collaboration and feedback. Separate teams, scope of work and tasks are replaced with cross-functional teams that work closely together. A service-oriented mindset ensures that customers and their needs take center stage and continuous improvement is embedded into the corporate culture.
