What is DevOps?

DevOps is an increasingly common approach to agile software development that developers and operations teams use to build, test, deploy and monitor applications with speed, quality and control.

DevOps is relevant to any kind of software project regardless of architecture, platform or purpose. Common use cases include: cloud-native and mobile applications, application integration, and modernization and multicloud management.

Successful DevOps implementations generally rely on an integrated set of solutions or a "toolchain" to remove manual steps, reduce errors, increase team agility, and scale beyond small, isolated teams.

Modernize your apps with speed and control using a DevOps approach

Whether you're modernizing applications in stages or working through a complete transformation, you probably have applications you're moving to the cloud. By leveraging containers, Kubernetes and microservices, you can reduce cost and complexity while retaining your investment in the original applications. Applying DevOps agile practices and tools makes the whole project run faster and smoother by automating key steps and improving operational efficiency and standardization.
