When implemented correctly, DevOps methodology can increase speed and accuracy, and can lift mundane operational tasks from the shoulders of IT personnel, freeing them to tackle higher value and more interesting problems. While discrete automation targets can always be identified, adopting a DevOps-first methodology will light the afterburner on your efforts.
DevOps changes the discussion about what’s possible with automation. It reframes business requirements and expands the scope where automation is possible. It also embraces continuous improvement by codifying a cycle of data collection, analysis, and ongoing refinement of the technology ecosystem.
