In traditional software release process the development team builds and tests code in their private environment and releases it to a operations team for production. Since two teams work separately, it becomes difficult for the development team to become fully aware of operational complexities like infrastructure, configuration, deployment, log management, and performance monitoring. These departmental silos between development and operations can slow down the production releases. The DevOps approach makes development and operations work together seamlessly.
By applying DevOps tools and principles that automate the process and reduce the complexity of version control, configuration management, continuous integration, deployment, and continuous performance monitoring. This close alignment enables organizations to deliver new releases in days rather than in months while improving the reliability of the application thereby giving a competitive edge to the organizations.
