DevOps combines software development (Dev) with operations (Ops), to deliver engineering best practices and faster software releases.
Under a DevOps model, there is one single team consisting of development and operations where the engineers work across the entire application lifecycle and develop a range of skills not limited to a single function.
Benefits of DevOps:
Improved speed of feature delivery
Stability of systems
Business-wide communication and collaboration improvements
Less time spent fixing or looking after systems
