Meld software development, IT operations, and best practices for high performing teams, rapid release, and continuous delivery. Metal Toad’s expert insights can help you understand the DevOps landscape and apply it effectively to support your business goals.
In brief, DevOps is a set of practices comprising:
- culture—collaboration and communication among teams and individuals
- toolsets—automation and configuration, used either as a service or as a self-serve model
- organizational design—where operations teams sit in relation to application development teams
These practices coalesce into a philosophy that connects application developers (the people writing the code) with system admin/technology operation roles (the people responsible for releasing code to production and keeping production up and running).
The result allows you to release value to market more quickly while ensuring high quality—helping you realize your full digital potential, including:
- faster time to market for new features
- increased stability and security for operating environments
- better team collaboration and productivity
- more time for professional development and innovation
