There are few things in Agile as easy to define and as difficult to accomplish as the DevOps methodology. DevOps comes from the English words development and operations. The function of DevOps is to reconcile the work of the development area with the operational functions of a project.
Any DevOps process must focus on 3 factors that can sometimes have communication problems, different points of view, or be in very different phases of work.
Developers: Focused on the creation and implementation of computer systems based on programming languages.
Operations: People in charge of production processes, hardware development, etc.
Quality control: A third group that is in charge of testing products and making decisions.
DevOps must reconcile the work of these three departments in pursuit of common goals.
A company that implements a DevOps process in its daily activity will seek two main objectives: to reconcile its programming, operations, and quality control teams, and also to establish effective channels to launch functional products on a continuous basis.
By promoting the perpetual delivery of software, we foster development-operations relationships, creating joint projects that break the isolation that can be created between these two work teams. Another advantage is that, as in the Lean for Start-Up processes, we are continuously launching improvements and new functions that optimize our products.
DevOps is part of the Agile vision of a company. You could say that DevOps is one more tool in a broad Agility concept.
However, the difference between Lean and DevOps is clear. Both methods are based on continuous delivery technology models, although the main difference is that DevOps would also focus on reconciling departments made up of people, while Lean is oriented to facilitate the flow of any process that a team executes.
