DevOps came about to lessen the negative effects of development and operations each working in their own silos. Development wanted to change systems to support business outcomes and operations were focused on keeping systems stable. DevOps works to remove the barriers between development and operations by having the two groups work together and understand each others drivers.
DevOps has evolved into reducing software cycle times in order to improve the frequency of feedback and the subsequent action upon that feedback. DevOps includes cultural change as well as a focus on increasing automation of building environments, deployment and testing in order to reduce cycle time. DevOps is based on Lean and Agile principles.
