The Benefits of DevOps

Alongside Agile, DevOps has been gaining a following worldwide due to the benefits it brings organizations who have to move quickly in the digital age. DevOps is fast becoming posterchild for faster speed to market, improved quality and increased business value for the customer. This is exactly what’s needed as a response to the digitization and the breakneck speed of development in the digital domain.

One of the biggest issues as a result of this enthusiastic uptake of DevOps is that there is a lack of qualified professionals. Aside from professionals who can understand and apply DevOps to their daily task, you also need professionals who can be advocates and ambassadors for DevOps in their organization. The EXIN DevOps program features certifications for professionals at every level.
