DevOps term is derived by combining words development (Dev) and information technology operations (Ops) for a set of practices used for the development of software. DevOps shortens the systems development life cycle while delivering features, fixes, and timely updates adhering to business objectives.
In an IT business, business units operate as individual entities in an environment where management, processes, and information are guarded. To break down silos on the software development side, there needs better communication and collaboration to serve the needs of the organization best.
Here, DevOps comes into the picture aiding to break down enterprise silos, manifesting the culture that partners developers with operations staff to ensure the organization achieves optimal running of software with minimal problems. Moving towards a DevOps-based culture is a solution to breaking down silos. DevOps-based culture is one that supports a willingness to work together and share.
Over the past years, the global DevOps market is witnessing a remarkable increase, mainly due to the rapidly growing IT industry. Various small to large scale enterprises are reliant on cloud-based solutions for service virtualization and containerization, this, as a result, is acting as a key driving force behind the expansion of the global DevOps market.
