Agile Driven DevOps

Learn how to manage infrastructure, operations, and production work the Agile way with Agile DevOps training.

GK# 5327

Course Overview

TOP

Successful DevOps transformation starts with top-to-bottom agility throughout your entire organization.

Despite the widespread success of Agile development practices, success is limited if Agile practices do not reach beyond development teams to deploy products delivering measurable value. Scalability, continuous integration, and ongoing maintenance in the production environment are just as critical to organizational success as the development effort itself.

In the quest for end-to-end value, DevOps has arisen as a professional movement which is both a reaction to and an expansion of Agile success. As agility increases speed and quality with which development teams produce features and products, it creates challenges for other departments tasked with deploying and maintaining them. DevOps transformation is the key to bridging these organizational gaps and resolving bottlenecks and handoff challenges in the value chain.
