The term DevOps is a combination of software development (dev) and IT operations (ops). It can have several meanings, but in general, it refers to a method of collaboration between development teams and operations teams. These are traditionally isolated teams that typically work independently, yet software projects require expertise from both.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About DevOps

SMBs may want to integrate these two teams that previously worked independently of each other. It can be challenging since the process requires acknowledging differences, developing trust, and aligning mutual project goals to business needs. Planning, problem-solving, and clear, open communication along the way can help. The effort may result in faster and better results, more reliability, and better product security.
