Course Overview


DevOps (development and operations) describes a type of agile relationship between development and IT operations. The goal of DevOps is to improve this relationship by advocating better communication and collaboration between business units.

Adoption of DevOps can help your organization to:

  • Deploy updates more frequently and efficiently to ensure faster time to market
  • Lower the failure rate of new releases
  • Improve mean time to recovery
  • Shorten lead time

In this course, you will learn to approach DevOps as an IT mindset that encourages communication, collaboration, integration, and automation between software developers and IT operations in order to improve the speed and quality of delivering viable software solutions.

You will also learn to further streamline the movement of software change through the Analyze, Plan, Design-Build-Test, and Deploy-Maintain stages, while empowering cross-functional teams with full ownership of software applications—from design through production support.
