With the continued digitization of all industries – from retail to healthcare – IT is under great pressure to accelerate. We need to respond immediately to change and quickly deliver solutions that cover the ever-changing markets and organizations’ environments. IT companies and departments that will not be able respond to this need for speed will experience customers’ diversion towards the competition, which will meet their “click button” requirements. DevOps is the answer to this pressure and a way to not only keep pace with customers’ needs, but also to be an indispensable partner in a challenging environment and to be an accelerator of their success.
DevOps is the way IT works to dramatically accelerate delivery to customers. However, it cannot be “implemented overnight”, it is a way of gradually implementing specific practices. The aim of the paper is to summarize the practices, what DevOps brings to IT organizations and why the IT sector cannot do without DevOps in the future.
