From Nextgov.com – DevOps is not build-in-place development or rapid prototyping. It’s not agile, and it’s not a role or a job title. It’s not a separate team or a special tool. It’s not just automation and there’s not just one way to do it effectively. It’s a rapid, customized approach to software development with minimum resources, maximum quality, and unification of development and operations for strategic mission fulfillment.
DevOps requires a culture of real-time collaboration among every group in an organization. It’s fast, and produces frequent deployments to production; if it’s slow, it’s not being done correctly. DevOps challenges distributed, status quo software development. It is different, and it requires time, funding, training, testing, communication, collaboration and buy-in but the benefits far outweigh the costs.
From Wikipedia DevOps (a clipped compound of “development” and “operations“) is a software engineering culture and practice that aims at unifying software development (Dev) and software operation (Ops). The main characteristic of the DevOps movement is to strongly advocate automation and monitoring at all steps of software construction, from integration, testing, releasing to deployment and infrastructure management. DevOps aims at shorter development cycles, increased deployment frequency, more dependable releases, in close alignment with business objectives.
