DevOps (development and operations) is a software development phrase used to describe a type of agile relationship between Development and IT Operations. The goal of DevOps is to improve communication, collaboration, and processes between the various roles in the software development cycle in order to improve and speed up software delivery.
DevOps emphasizes integration between software developers and IT operations: Rather than seeing these two groups as silos who pass things along but don’t really work together, DevOps recognizes the interdependence of software development and IT operations, and this approach helps an organization produce software and IT services more rapidly, with frequent iterations.

What Are the Measurable Benefits of DevOps?
DevOps aims at establishing a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably, and in a DevOps environment, cross functionality, shared responsibilities, and trust are promoted. One tangible benefit of DevOps is an observed decrease in development and operations cost. Other measurable benefits of DevOps include:
- Shorter Development Cycle
- Increased Release Velocity
- Improved Defect Detection
- Reduced Deployment Failures and Rollbacks
- Reduced Time to Recover upon Failure
