Atlassian says DevOps is
“a set of practices that works to automate and integrate the processes between software development and IT teams, so they can build, test, and release software faster and more reliably. The term DevOps was formed by combining the words “development” and “operations” and signifies a cultural shift that bridges the gap between development and operation teams, which historically functioned in siloes.”
Important Points: Automation, Practices/Process, Speed, Culture, Collaboration, Cross Team
Atlassian has traditionally made their mark on the world by providing tools that allow software teams to collaborate and plan effectively, helping to enable the adoptions of Agile and other best practices. Now, as they continue to innovate on their traditional toolsets, they are helping further the DevOps movement by providing tools that encourage DevOps best practices. They offer Bamboo integration and release tooling (CI /CD), as well as OpsGenie (2018 acquisition) for incident management.
Atlassian further reinforces the benefits of speed and accuracy in software development, delivery and operations through cultural change. They discuss integration of processes between Ops and Dev teams. While many might posit that DevOps may best be implemented in new teams structures that are cross discipline (see Team Topologies book), no one is likely to argue the benefits of DevOps transformation when implemented well.
