Red Hat unveiled updates across its portfolio of developer tools designed to help organizations build and deliver applications faster and more consistently across Kubernetes-based hybrid and multicloud environments.
DEVOPSdigest asked experts from across the industry to define what DevOps means to them. The goal is to show just how many varied ideas are connected with the concept of DevOps, and in the process learn a little more what DevOps is all about. The second installment covers how Dev and Ops work together.
Some people write code while others make sure it's always running smoothly. DevOps is everyone working as one team.
DevOps is a software development practice in which development and operations teams work together, taking the intelligence of how an application runs to inform and improve how the application is being built, in a rapid iterative process. It embraces the concepts of continuous development and continuous integration, and requires a strong discipline around performance optimization, monitoring and automation.

5. DEV AND OPS AS ONE ORGANIZATION
DevOps is a philosophy that dictates that the application developers and application support be part of the same organization and share the same goals. It’s an idea long overdue where the silos are finally broken down. Forward thinking companies that adopt this methodology have their developers and app support personnel both focused on providing the best application experiences possible. DevOps team members must be highly agile and often utilize open source software, customized to their specific needs.

6. UNIFYING THE WORKFLOW FROM DEV AND OPS
DevOps is the unification of the workflow from development to production. Previously, this was an opaque process between developers and operators, but today DevOps brings transparency, collaboration, and insight to a technical organization.

7. IMPROVING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DEV AND OPS
In his famous manuscript "The Art of War," Sun Tzu, considered war a necessary evil to be avoided whenever possible. DevOps helps in this way, where IT, Dev and business teams collaborate to deliver the absolute best services and features we can to customers as quickly as possible while still increasing reliability – and in return eliminate war rooms, improve business results and spend much more time innovating. Think win-win, not internal wars and blamestorming.

DevOps acknowledges that there are risks and bottlenecks that can sabotage any good software project and team, and sets to lay all the issues out on the table and take a holistic approach to tackling them.
