DevOps is a methodology that combines software development (Development) and IT operations (Operations) practices to enhance collaboration between teams and accelerate the process of software development, testing, and release. The primary goal of DevOps is to automate and optimize processes through the use of tools and practices such as Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery (CD), monitoring, and Infrastructure as Code (IaC).

This approach fosters a culture of collaboration and communication between developers and operators, bridging the traditional gap between development and operations. Consequently, businesses can respond swiftly to market changes, improve software quality, and reduce release times, while ensuring operational stability and reliability.
