Emblematically, DevOps is the perfect synthesis of development and operations, two groups with historically competing concerns which resulted in both an adversarial relationship as well as dramatically impeded the delivery of IT value to the business. Building on the earlier transition from traditional waterfall SDLC (software development lifecycle) process, on to agile methodologies and frameworks, DevOps brought the two groups together, while maintaining the needed separation of concerns, and tool enabling the agile process resulting in improved cross-functional collaboration, shared trust, and overall delivery agility and speed.
