Immediate access to information across multiple channels has resulted in an era of fast-paced, user-driven demand and the need for greater speed in delivering products and services. In tandem with this is the ability of software applications to respond in shorter, more frequent, and faster development and delivery cycles. Together, these things have led to the emergence of DevOps practices as a key way to accelerate digital business innovation.
DevOps is an approach to culture, automation, and a platform designed to increase the speed and flexibility with which new features and services are delivered. Modern application platforms based on container technology and microservices are critical to DevOps practices, helping deliver secure and innovative software services at the speed of digital business.
