Gigantic Influences of DevOps

Even as DevOps adoption continues to accelerate day by day in both large enterprises and web-native organizations, confusion lingers about what exactly the term DevOps means. Is DevOps culture, a movement, an approach, a philosophy, or some amalgam of several of these things? Or does DevOps mean different things to different people?

DevOps represents a change in IT culture, by focusing on rapid IT service delivery through the adoption of agile, lean practices in the context of a system-oriented approach. DevOps emphasizes people and seeks to improve collaboration between operations and development teams. DevOps implementations utilize core technology— especially automation tools that can leverage an increasingly programmable and dynamic infrastructure from a life cycle perspective.

Companies that incorporate DevOps into practices get more done, plain and simple. With a single team composed of cross-functional members all working in collaboration, DevOps organizations can deliver things with maximum speed, functionality, and innovation.

technical benefits of DevOps :

Continuous software delivery
Less complexity to manage
Faster resolution of problems

cultural benefits of DevOps :

Happier, more productive teams
Higher employee engagement
Greater professional development opportunities

business benefits of DevOps :

Faster delivery of features
More stable operating environments
Improved communication and collaboration
More time to innovate (rather than fix/maintain)

There is enormous waste in a typical IT environment with people waiting for other people and other machines—or they are stuck solving the same problems over and over time. Workers like to be productive and the time spent churning causes frustration and unhappiness among the workers. When people get rid of the unsatisfying parts of their job and can instead spend that time adding value to the organization, everyone gets benefits from it.

Automated deployments and standardized production environments, key aspects of DevOps models of IT operations, make deployments predictable and free people from routine repetitive tasks to go and do more creative things.
