DevOps in Context and Practice
DevOps combines processes and toolsets from key practices within the SDLC; planning & tracking, development, build & test, delivery, and operational reporting are benefitting from shared understanding and approaches, a community of quality practitioners. The efforts of cross-discipline teams towards building efficient CI/CD pipelines create cultural shifts in what were once siloed and gated practices. The dependency upon automation, agile methodologies and focus throughout each phase presents significant investment, technical, and human challenges for organizations adopting DevOps to create quality products, delivered faster with direct value to need.
