Dev Ops

DevOps is a term used to refer to a set of practices that emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes.

Agile and DevOps are similar, The need for DevOps was born from the increasing popularity of agile software development, as that tends to lead to an increased number of releases. One goal of DevOps is to establish an environment where releasing more reliable applications faster and more frequently can occur.

Release managers are beginning to utilize tools such as App release Automation & Continuous Integration tools to help advance this goal, doing so through Continuous delivery approach.

Continuous delivery and DevOps are similar in their meanings and are often conflated, but they are two different concepts. DevOps has a broader scope, and centers around the organizational change, specifically the collaboration of the various teams involved in software delivery (developers, operations, quality assurance, management, etc.), as well as automating the processes in software delivery.  Continuous Delivery, on the other hand, is an approach to automate the delivery aspect, and focuses on bringing together different processes and executing them more quickly and more frequently. 

DevOps and Continuous Delivery share a background in agile methods and lean thinking: small and quick changes with focused value to the end customer. They are well communicated and collaborated internally, thus helping achieve quick time to market, with reduced risks.
