Businesses today must move at the speed of digital. Traditional software development often can’t keep up. DevOps helps companies accelerate software development and improve software quality. In the past, software was often “thrown over the wall” to infrastructure and operations for deployment and support. Resolving issues required numerous rounds of iterations between multiple groups. With DevOps, software developers, infrastructure administrators, quality assurance and operations professionals collaborate early and often to anticipate potential problems and proactively incorporate feedback throughout the development cycle using an Enterprise DevOps Platform.
