DevOps culture has come to permeate the world's business and IT sectors. As of 2016, just over 74% of organizations have adopted DevOps. However, there are still a few remaining IT professionals who are unaware of what DevOps' practices are, as well as what they have to offer.
In a nutshell, DevOps is a combination of 'development' and 'operations', where the underlying logic relies on IT departments pooling resources. In this way, shared experience and knowledge can bring about major benefits to organizations. These include an increase in compatibility, teamwork, and efficiency, with high-quality results produced at a faster rate. This can also free up time for additional features to be added to IT-powered products and services.
At the same time, DevOps highlights the need for 'agile' working, prioritizing smaller and more regular releases. DevOps practitioners are able to complete projects more swiftly, with regular checks scheduled in order to identify any bugs or issues.
DevOps can also be integrated with other frameworks, including ITIL 4.
