DevOps is about speed: faster application development, faster updates and continuous development, and faster shipments, all of which lead to shortened systems development lifecycles. Recent research shows that high-performing DevOps teams recover from downtime 96 times faster, have a five times lower change failure rate, and deploy code 46 times more frequently. In short, successful DevOps teams can deploy code and recover in a matter of hours, not weeks.

Streamlining collaboration and selecting the right suite of automation and other tools followed in order of leading challenges.
