DevOps is a cultural and professional movement that stresses communication, collaboration, integration and, of course, 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.

The DASA DevOps Fundamentals Certification is designed to provide the core learning to build your DevOps vocabulary and to understand its principles and practices. The course is designed to provide you with an understanding across all four skill areas and all eight knowledge areas of the DASA DevOps Comptence Model (shown below) so that you can operate at level 2 competence.
