DevOps is the convergence of existing IT best practices from ITIL®, Lean, Agile, and Scrum into a development and operations approach that supports automation and continuous delivery. Described as more of a mindset than a framework, DevOps aims to blur the lines between the existing IT siloes to create a more collaborative relationship between Dev and Ops allowing organizations to create greater business value with more streamlined processes, faster deployments, and more successful releases.
