Introducing the IBM DevOps approach
The IBM DevOps approach speeds up and sustains the software-driven innovation you're planning, developing, testing, and delivering. Regardless of whether your focus is in mobile development, cloud hosting, big data analysis, or social business, you can continuously release better software and services faster, at lower cost and with less risk.
IBM DevOps works by engaging and aligning all participants in the software delivery lifecycle — business teams; architects, developers, and testers; and IT operations and production — around a single, shared goal: sustained innovation, fueled by continuous delivery and shaped by continuous feedback.
What does it take to adopt it?
Organizations that embrace the IBM DevOps approach follow four guiding principles.

The results are formulated into a customized adoption roadmap with recommendations for specific DevOps practices and solutions. Implementation of the recommendations help clients:
IBM DevOps Benchmarking: Based on Assessment data, Benchmark Services provide insight on the DevOps maturity of an enterprise relative to industry, geography, and revenue. Proficiency benchmarks are provided according to adoption path and areas that align to the DevOps Reference Architecture.
