Chances are if you have been keeping up with the latest tech trends, you have heard of DevOps. The benefits of DevOps are easy enough to understand: faster time to market, increased stability and quality, and more time to build valuable products. But when it comes time to put theory into practice, many still grapple with the basic question of what exactly is DevOps?

Jeff Galllimore in a radio studioThis month, Excella Co-Founder and Partner Jeff Gallimore took to the pen and the airwaves to answer this very question.  In this post, published on his blog “IT’s A Nice Life,” Jeff evaluates several popular definitions of the term and offers his own synthesized definition.

Jeff also sat down to speak with John Gilroy of Federal News Radio’s Federal Tech Talk about how to define DevOps, where the term got its origins, and (most importantly) examples of where DevOps has saved money on complex software development projects. Click here to listen to the entire interview.

Tell us what you think!  How would you define DevOps?
