DevOps is the coming together of both development and operations teams into a coordinated workflow such that collaboration and productivity are improved to meet shared business goals. Building on Agile and Lean, DevOps enables the business to respond to changes and meet customer needs faster. Tools and automation are necessary enablers. Practices such as Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery are often followed.
Traditionally, products were monolithic in nature and release cycles were long. While developers focused on creating working software, it was operations who (manually) ensured that it could run in a production environment. Dev was all about adding new features. Ops was about stability and availability. Between these two were the testers. DevOps brings these teams closer so that releases can happen as quickly as necessary.
DevOps has been described variously as a culture, a mindset, a framework and a movement. DevSecOps attempts to bring security aspects into DevOps. With the growing importance of data analytics, especially in real time, DataOps attempts to apply DevOps to analytics and enable better data-driven decisions. While DevOps has been proven for individual applications, will it work for enterprises that use hundreds of diverse applications across private/public clouds and on-premises? This is being addressed by BizDevOps that's more operations focused and has less tolerance for risk taking. When it comes to collaboration, ChatOps is a model based on conversations to bring together tools, bots and people for transparent workflows. NetOps tries to achieve agility in operations without sacrificing availability. When IT operations are completely automated, though not eliminated, we have NoOps. Cloud providers offering PaaS ease so much of day-to-day operations for their users that they tend to use the term NoOps as augmenting DevOps.
