Why take this course?

DevOps is designed to solve human errors by helping companies reevaluate the relationship between development and operations professionals. Its proven effectiveness has seen its popularity skyrocket over the last few years, with DevOps certifications becoming highly valuable and sought after achievements for IT managers and professionals worldwide.

Given how crucial IT has become for modern businesses, the frequent lack of effective collaboration between employees in IT development and operations departments is startling. Not only can this cause delays, but it can also reduce the value of essential IT-powered services and products, leading to unsatisfied customers as well as increased opportunities for competitors.

DevOps is designed to solve this problem by encouraging an atmosphere of communication, collaboration, integration and automation. With shared responsibilities, awareness and expertise, teams can work together to create higher-quality products and services. More essential processes can be automated, and any failures can be fully utilized to help bring about continual service improvement. Perhaps most importantly, using DevOps can also help organizations to release products and services much faster than their competitors.

This course offers an excellent introduction to the terminology and methods of DevOps, as well as the benefits it can offer IT-driven businesses. The content also explores how DevOps relates to other practices, such as Lean and Agile, as well as general ITSM. Most importantly, learners will learn how to apply DevOps to real world-organizations, regardless of their size, location or industry.

Students who take this course will learn:

  • The benefits of DevOps for the management of IT development and operations

  • How to apply DevOps to real world-organizations, regardless of their size, location or industry

  • How DevOps can lead to higher-quality and more regularly-released products and services

  • How DevOps tools can be used to create automated processes, resulting in lower costs and increased reliability

  • Everything needed to pass the official DevOps Foundation exam
