Breakfast Roundtable: DevOps

DevOps - A Collaborative Approach to Delivering Software

DevOps is an approach to delivering software that brings Developers, IT operations, Quality Assurance and others together into a highly collaborative group.

Software developers are usually driven by the demand for innovative solutions and therefore tend to be natural proponents of change, whereas IT operations are responsible for the stability of systems and see any change to a stable system as a risk. DevOps seeks to break through this paradox by building trust and quality along the entire delivery lifecycle. Key tasks of a DevOps or Continuous Delivery enablement team are: developing infrastructure "as code"; supporting Continuous Integration; delivery and creating modular platforms.

DevOps addresses fear of change, risky deployments, lack of trust, and disjointed working units.
