Submission + - Will DevOps be as big as Cloud and Big Data? (

sweetpea86 writes: The notion of DevOps could become as prevalent as Cloud Computing or Big Data, according to IT process automation company UC4 Software, with IT departments striving to stay agile while still developing and releasing stable code.

Although developers are building applications at an ever-increasing rate, time and cost pressures mean they are no longer able to test each application in every conceivable environment. This means that when an application goes into production it often breaks, causing headaches for the help desk and operations teams.

UC4's Randy Clark describes DevOps as a “multi-function SWAT team”, with one foot in the development world and one in the operations world. By forcing the two departments to work together and implementing better planning, control and automation, the problems can be vastly reduced, said Clark.
