Improving Collaboration through the Application Lifecycle

DevOps is the union of People, Process and Products to enable continuous delivery of value to end users.

Time to market of key applications, solutions or products is hampered by confusion between development and operations teams. The teams often work in silos and there is no proper handshake or handover between the two departments. Blame games are a norm. This usually hampers business agility and ability of businesses to capture key moments.

DevOps is all about collaboration between the development and operations team throughout the application lifecycle starting with planning, development, testing, roll out and support. There are various tools and automated processes now available for DevOps implementation. Cloud has only helped accelerate the DevOps adoption. Companies, however, grapple with the implementation of DevOps processes and tools in their environment.
