This term comes from the contraction of “development” and “operations”, in the sense of exploitation. The IT industry is constantly evolving, and it’s often a good idea to merge the developer profession and the system administrator profession into one profession: DevOps.

The combination of these professions facilitates better cooperation which allows better design of the applications. DevOps takes care of both development and operations missions. This dual skill allows him to create applications that are perfectly suited to the infrastructure and that continue to function once implemented. Compared to a job as a developer or system administrator, DevOps therefore has an obligation of quality during all stages of the project.
