Scan through any current software magazines or websites and you may come to this conclusion: DevOps is the most important subject in IT today.

A movement that began to take shape around six years ago still manages to create a huge buzz around the IT industry.

First, let’s establish this fact:

DEVOPS IS A MOVEMENT.

Most people involved in IT may be able to describe the general framework of DevOps, but lack a concrete understanding of the When, What, Why, and How of DevOps.

DevOps is, always has been, and always will be a movement.

This gives us, an idea what DevOps isn’t: it is not a product, it’s not a job title, and it is nothing you can point to. It is not even a goal.

What is DevOps?

DevOps is a cultural movement that takes place between Dev and Ops.

The term Ops embraces all people that operate, monitor, and scale technologies and services. It includes a myriad of job titles such as systems engineers, system administrators, DBAs, network engineers, release engineers and various other subdisciplines.

On the other side of the coin, the term Dev is encompasses everybody that is involved in the development of a product. It includes developers, testers, business analysts, product managers, product owners and, again, a truly long “et cetera”.

Together, DevOps literally means development and operations. The term stresses the union of the disciplines. This statement declares that DevOps is a cultural movement that takes place between Dev and Ops.

DevOps aims to form a friction-less cross-team collaboration between two groups. It is intended to enable a willingness on both sides to change current processes.

DevOps is about the collaboration of people and convergence of processes that together aim to enable continuous delivery (as an example among many others).
