What is DevOps?
DevOps is a cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration and integration between software developers and IT operations professionals. The resulting improved workflow provides businesses the flexibility to change, and change quickly, without sacrificing the quality and reliability of their IT-based business services.
Despite the name, DevOps extends beyond software developers and IT operations professionals.
Generally speaking, ‘Dev’ represents all the people involved in developing software products and services (including business representatives and suppliers) and ‘Ops’ includes all the people involved in delivering and managing those products and services (including suppliers).
DevOps Certification with DevOps Institute
DevOps certifications are ideal for individuals and organisations that seek an understanding of DevOps principles.
The DevOps Institute (DOI) is the continuous learning community around emerging DevOps practices. Working with recognised thought leaders, the DevOps Institute is setting the quality standard for DevOps competency-based education and qualifications. Its role-based approach to certification focuses on the most modern competencies and hireable skills required by today’s organisations adopting DevOps.
The DevOps qualification scheme consists of eight distinct certifications:
The DevOps Foundation® course provides a baseline understanding of key DevOps terminology to ensure everyone is talking the same language and highlights the benefits of DevOps to support organisational success.
The Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) Foundation℠ course is an introduction to the principles & practices that enable an organisation to reliably and economically scale critical services.
The DevOps Leader (DOL)® course is a unique and practical experience for participants who want to take a transformational leadership approach and make an impact within their organisation by implementing DevOps.
The DevSecOps Foundation (DSOF)℠ course explains how DevOps security practices differ from other security approaches and provides the education needed to understand and apply data and security sciences.
The Continuous Delivery Ecosystem Foundation℠ course is designed for participants who are engaged in the design, implementation, and management of DevOps deployment pipelines and toolchains that support Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Testing and potentially Continuous Deployment.
The Continuous Testing Foundation℠ course addresses testing in a DevOps environment and covers concepts such as the active use of test automation, testing earlier in the development cycle, and instilling testing skills in developers, quality assurance, security, and operational teams.
The Certified Agile Service Manager (CASM)® course provides an introduction to Agile Service Management, the application, and integration of agile thinking into service management processes and process design projects.
The Certified Agile Process Owner (CAPO)® course provides guidance into the process Owner responsibilities so they can describe what they are doing as a process and provides the education needed to oversee the design, re-engineering and improvement of IT Service Management (ITSM) processes; particularly in the context of Agile Service Management.
