'Devops' has evolved from buzzy business jargon into a prominent ideology of workplace culture.

The compound phrase mashes together 'development' and 'operations', and this is roughly what the ideology promotes: the breaking down of boundaries between different departments and increased flow of information and data across the organisation.

This is intended to strengthen connections between employees and facilitate faster and more streamlined practices surrounding the development and launch of new applications and other technologies.

Many large organisations have endorsed this approach and claim that it has significantly reduced the time necessary to release applications. For this reason, Devops is now also sometimes referred to as 'Agile' working practices. Understandably, more businesses are taking note.
