How is it useful?

Leading organizations have adopted the DevOps approach to deliver in-time software. DevOps has quickly become the most hyped, overused and ambiguous term in IT. It is being used to reference everything from job titles (DevOps is not a job title!) to technology practices, but the truth is that DevOps is more of a culture than anything else. It is about transformation, about building quality in, improving productivity and about automation in Dev, Testing and Operations. DevOps is about breaking down silos and to increase communication and accomplish the tasks that require expertise in multiple areas.

The course enables you to learn DevOps fundamentals along with Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery and deep dive into DevOps concepts and mind-set. It also helps you explore the possibilities in applying the concepts learned during the course using the most popular tools today


There are no pre-requisites for this certification. Any IT professional interested in truly understanding DevOps can do this course. Little technical background is very helpful and is recommended.
