DevOps has gained substantial traction in recent years, and this is evident in the thin boundaries it shares with agile development, which has become a norm for application development. The growth of DevOps services is being led by the need to deliver agility in business. Service providers are basing their DevOps services on the key tenets of people over process over tools, amplified feedback, lean management, auto gating, chaos re-engineering, continuous integration and continuous delivery. Culture (to adopt DevOps practices), automation (for code generation), AI and ML practices for visibility and usage of tools (open source and proprietary) are some of the other key drivers that have an impact on the delivery of DevOps by service providers.
DevOps is a type of software development practice that combines development and technology operations to shorten the software development life cycle (SDLC). To achieve this objective, it involves three key principles: system thinking, feedback loops, and continuous experimentation and learning. Some of the methodologies involved in DevOps include lean management, continuous delivery, and people over process over tools.
