Quick Glossary: DevOps
For many enterprises, the ability to rapidly develop, deploy and integrate new software and features is essential to the overall success of the organization. Managing all those moving parts requires workflow procedures that cross traditionally separate departments and can be accomplished only with effective communication and cooperation.
These workflow procedures are referred to as DevOps, which is a mash-up of two terms: ‘software development’ and ‘information technology operations.’
The DevOps terms listed here — courtesy of TechRepublic Premium — will give you a working vocabulary and a head start toward developing your own DevOps system.
