DevOps Training and Certification

DevOps – short for Development and Operations – is a movement within the IT industry that has been picking up momentum over the past few years. What has been driving this new set of best-practices?  Very simply the increasing pace of change – business change, and technology change. Add to that the increasing level of globalization, and the trend of business to “digital enterprises” – and you have the environment that has driven the need to DevOps.

What is DevOps?  Suffice it to say that the intent of this emerging set of best-practices is to enable an IT organization’s development teams and operational teams to work more closely together – breaking down barriers between these functions, and creating improved collaboration – so that the organization can respond more quickly to customer needs, and deliver new and improved IT services that enable the business to be increasingly successful in the marketplace.
