DevOps Fundamentals

Certification Course

DevOps Fundamentals (including the Pheonix Project) Overview

This course provides an introduction to DevOps – the cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and automation in order to improve the flow of work between software developers and IT operations professionals.

To maximize the IT value flow to customers, DevOps creates an improved ability to design, develop, deploy and operate software and services faster for the benefit of the business. Higher customer satisfaction, better quality, faster delivery and lower costs are all benefits.

“Up to 200 times faster software deployment, 30 times increased deployment frequency, and 60 times higher change success rates, organisations such as Netflix, Spotify, and Facebook are revolutionising the IT game by successfully implementing DevOps principles.”
