DevOps is a set of cultural and technical practices that help organizations improve how they work so they can deliver better software faster. Companies who want to move to a DevOps model need to have an Agile mindset and need a cultural change as to how the organization functions. In the current market, there is a need for software to be delivered more frequently, reliably and at higher quality standards. Companies move to Agile software development methodologies to help support the needs, to move to crossfunctional teams that are self-organizing and can deliver software on a much more frequent cadence. This paper talks about the challenges for adopting DevOps and the changes companies need to make, also discussing how the innovation in Agile software development lead to DevOps and how that is changing the organizational culture.
