What is DevOps?
DevOps is a set of principles and practices — both technical and cultural — that can help organizations deploy better software, faster. While it is not a fixed methodology, automation and a collaborative culture are the foundation for accepted DevOps practices, which include:
- Measuring the things that have an impact on your organization’s goals
- Making those measurements visible to everyone
- Using a shared set of tools
- Including all teams in the software delivery process from the earliest planning stages.
In this blog post, Puppet's chief technical strategist, Nigel Kersten, lays out the changes in technology & business that have lead to DevOps, and the fundamental ideas of this movement.
DevOps Culture & Practices
DevOps culture and practices are key to aligning your software delivery cadence with your organization's goals — and to organizational success. Hear experts Jez Humble, Gene Kim, Peter Richards and Jeffrey Snover talk about how a DevOps approach affects your business; its relationship to Agile and lean management principles; and the revolutionary change it represents for both IT and business.
