Devops has gone beyond being a trendy buzzword and is now getting real adoption across all industry segments.
Today, it is receiving attention from industry analysts, marketers, bloggers, software developers and, more importantly, IT departments in large and small enterprises. Why? Devops helps businesses compete by delivering innovations to customers faster and more reliably. The ultimate goal of devops is continuous delivery where developers own the “build and deploy” cycle to build applications faster. Continuous integration plays a big role in making it a reality.
Over time we have infused webMethods with exciting new capabilities to enable Continuous Integration. We want you to know exactly what these capabilities are; so in this, the first of a series of blogs, we will discuss devops.
Devops can unify your software development and operations activities, combining local development and automated testing to facilitate continuous integration for faster delivery. Imagine being able to create and edit code from anywhere – on your desktop or laptop to develop faster and quickly run automated tests to verify the quality before the deployment.

This is a key requirement of any successful devops and continuous delivery program. It also helps you to maintain your focus on delivering value to your customers as you ramp up development and delivery.
