DevOps is a concept with different interpretations and definitions, but when you get down to it, it’s all about developers and operations teams breaking down silos and working together to innovate faster. For many companies, the ability to innovate at a rapid pace — responding to market conditions and customer feedback — is a key factor for success.
The benefits of DevOps are very clear, but the path to transform an organization to adopt a DevOps methodology presents a number of challenges, including how to evolve the structure of a team and the culture; what tools to use; how to acquire the skills; what best practices to adopt; and how to build a system that is reliable and can scale.
These challenges emerge more as you start on the journey to adopt DevOps as a philosophy. Startups, software development teams inside large organizations, software vendors building SaaS products and other software teams are all impacted.
