DevOps is a set of practices that combines software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops).  It enables continuous delivery of applications and software while reducing the disconnection between software developers, quality assurance (QA), engineers and system administrators. 

It is important because it's a software development and operations approach that enables faster development of new products, easier maintenance of existing deployments and errors can be fixed at the initial development stage.

  • Shorter development cycles and faster innovation. 
  • Reduced deployment failures, rollbacks and time to recover. 
  • Better communication and cooperation. 
  • Increased efficiency.
  • Reduced costs and IT headcount.
