DevOps Emerges

This “clash of silos” has led to the rise in an ever greater need for cooperation and collaboration between these often opposing forces, yielding way to the identification and promotion of a whole “new” focused discipline: DevOps. The goal of DevOps is simply to accommodate the speed and turnaround introduced by Agile adoptions, while protecting the integrity and availability of the overall IT infrastructure.

While manageable at small scales, the greater challenge is with the much larger institutions, and in particular Government Agencies, that must navigate layers within their organizations and adhere to strict rules of governance and compliance with regulations and service level agreements.
