DevOps Methods and Tools
DevOps tools focus on reducing or eliminating delays during software development caused by the separation of development and operation. Developers that work in a siloed environment experience challenges like time wastage and frustration. The lack of coordination between developers and the ops team responsible for preparing a product for release may result in non-working products requiring them to go back to the drawing board. DevOps methods and tools allow you to align production and development to streamline the entire process.
