First of all – what is DevOps? If I’m in a room full of people and I ask each one of them what they’d describe as DevOps, I’m going to get different answers from every single person. Is it automation? Is it a job title? Is it development? Is it operations? Who is responsible for it?

So let’s define what DevOps is. We have a definition of DevOps by Donovan Brown that we use here at Microsoft:

“DevOps is the union of people, process and products to enable continuous delivery of value to our end customers”

We are continuously delivering value to our end users. That’s the key part. Now that we’ve defined what DevOps is, let’s take a look at the benefits.

In this third instalment of Azure Mythbusters season three, April Edwards takes a look at the benefits of using DevOps in the workplace, and why it’s a tool for more people than just developers.
