DevOps (a clipped compound of “development” and “operations”) is a software development methodology that combines software development (Dev) with information technology operations (Ops). The goal of DevOps is to shorten the systems development life cycle while delivering software releases frequently in close alignment with business objectives in a faster, better, and cheaper fashion. The DevOps approach to work covers three critical success factors: cultural shift, improvement of practices and processes, and leverage of automation technologies.

Due to the proven success of the DevOps approach to work, DevOps oriented roles have become a sought-after resource across industries by a constantly growing number of organizations, who need DevOps-savvy people to make the cultural shift, work comfortably in a DevOps environment, and manage an array of technology and tools —referred to collectively as “toolchain” – for process, including but not limited to, coding, building, testing, packaging, releasing, configuring and monitoring.

It’s in this continuously evolving context, that PeopleCert designed a suite of DevOps qualifications that reflects the market need to close the skills-gap that many organizations are facing and support the realization of their business objectives and to improve communication, standardization, collaboration and automation for the delivery of quality software products better, faster and with a lower cost.
