DevOps is more than just an artificial term linking the apparently opposed disciplines of “development” and “IT operations”; rather, it is first and foremost a strategic approach aiming at massively speeding up the processes around software development. For us to be able to react quickly and flexibly to the changing business requirement at our clients’, teams consisting of developers and system operators are working closely together. The ideal cooperation via DevOps methods and DevOps processes filled with life thus increases the speed in software development, shortening release cycles, and minimizing the risk of untested elements. In doing so, we rely on automated processes comprising all stations of a service from development to operation: development, version control, merge and build, testing, packaging, release, configuration management, and monitoring.
