How devops changes both dev and ops

Source – techworld.com.au Devops is the literal and figurative fusion of development and operations. For years, these two groups have been separated by cultural and knowledge boundaries, particularly inside larger enterprise IT organizations.

DevOps and SecOps began as separate efforts

Source – csoonline.com Until today, anti-fraud, security and authentication activities in organizations have operated as largely-separate domains, with IT Ops even more separated, in most cases.
