DevOps transformation

In order to be successful in today's global marketplace, organizations are moving to a more agile approach to software development. In order to be competitive, organizations must look to reduce lead times from years to weeks. How will you be competitive in today's market?

Enter DevOps!

The core premise of DevOps is how to bring together people, process, and technology in order to continuously deliver value to end users. It's goal is to increase the collaboration between Development and Operations teams to produce more value, not friction.
