DevOps - From a Niche to a Mainstream Strategy
In today’s digital day and age, speed and innovation are the hallmarks of a successful company. IT professionals are under constant pressure to move faster and deliver software and services that drive business value. Every organization wants to improve efficiency and service quality, have more reliable service delivery, increased customer and employee satisfaction. The long term solution is to adopt DevOps.
The word “DevOps” is a shortened compound of “Development” and “Operations”. As its name suggests, it emphasizes the collaboration between developers and operators/supporters in order to improve the quality of releases and the speed of bringing new software or services to the market. DevOps aims at establishing a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software and services can happen rapidly, frequently, and with minimal support, in order to continuously grow business advantage and customer satisfaction. DevOps is a crucial part of the Agile, Service Management and Lean Approach.

For Training Organizations
“I see certification in DevOps Master as a significant advancement of Exin by pioneering the knowledge of a new and recognized culture. The course proposes an immersion into a world that balances Software Development with IT Operations, bringing Lean concepts (and their origins in production lines) with Agile Project Management and delivery of Managed IT Services.
Master-level certification requires hands-on experience when testing students with situational challenges typical of any IT manager, whether it's Dev or Ops. Do not expect a proof of concepts, these are already known by those looking for training. What this certification demands is making good decisions in the midst of a technological scenario very close to the reality of today's companies.
DevOps is a method that involves technology, behavior and organizational practices to advance the idea to production in a fast, controlled and secure way. For this to become a reality, any organization must make great changes in culture, processes and people. And investing in training can be the ideal starting point for creating the awareness necessary for change in teams.”
