What Is DevOps?

Devops is a multi-layered, multi-stakeholder IT computing trend that is blending the roles of enterprise software developers and enterprise IT operations professionals with the goal of reducing development cycles while increasing operational stability. 451 Research typically sees devops emerge as organizations start to use the latest tools and practices in both software development and IT operations, including agile development and open source software, and virtual and cloud computing environments. To be successful, devops must close the loop and go from development to operations and back again, also drawing in other teams and stakeholders, including staff handling business requirements, customer relations, security and other areas.

How Will DevOps Affect Your Organization?

The devops movement has effects beyond the software development and IT operations teams that the term implies. Our research indicates that the trend involves a number of other stakeholders and teams working together to improve software releases, quality, effectiveness for users, and IT operations efficiency, uptime and response.
