For decades there have been disconnects between the different roles of the IT shop. We struggle with inherent barriers between development projects and the stable infrastructure needed to deploy and run products. In this course, you'll be introduced to DevOps and why it's more than just the sum of development and operations. You'll begin by discovering what DevOps represents and why successful organizations utilize it. Then you'll explore how DevOps impacts developer productivity, a brief history of DevOps, W. Edwards Deming and his influence on the TQM movement, the Lean movement, and waste identification. Finally, you'll learn about Agile and its principles, continuous delivery, and the end goals of DevOps. This course was originally created by Global Knowledge (GK).
