“The end game of every DevOps practice is continuous delivery: building, testing, and releasing far more frequently, and ensuring that you can release reliably at any time. My favorite part: it means that operations and support teams (like my Tech Comms team) use many of the same processes and tools as our developers do – so we all speak a similar language, follow similar workflows (like agile development processes), and work very closely together. It’s far more efficient.”

-Michael Kren, DevOps Manager, JAMF Software
