DevOps is the combination of Development and Operations, which promotes collaboration between Developers & testers and operation team to work together and it deploys code to make production faster in an automated and repeatable way. DevOps work like a platform where it allows a single team to handle the entire application lifecycle and helps to reduce the disconnection between developers, QA engineers and system administrators.
Belgium consultant and Patrick Debois held their first conference named DevOpsdays in 2009. Later in 2012, 2014 and 2015, the different DevOps reports were launched.

DevOps is one of the valuable business communicators for enterprises or organisations, which helps to increase quality and the speed of the application delivery. The structure in the DevOps classifies in 4 stages they are Automation, Configuration management Integration and collaboration.
Before DevOps started, the development and operation teams work in isolation, where they consume more time to build the actual cycle. The team members are used to spend a large amount of their time in testing, designing and deploying instead of building the project.
After introducing, DevOps allows Agile Development team to operate on continuous integrations and delivery of the product. Under this, the development and operations teams are no longer siloed. They work together, which results in less cost efficiency and help to break larger codebase into smaller pieces with Agile programming method.
