The DASA DevOps Fundamentals Certification course explains DevOps and how it contributes to continuous customer value. DevOps is a working method aimed at improving collaboration, communication and integration and – of course – automating the value streams between customers, software developers and operational IT professionals. DevOps maximises customer value by enabling services to be designed, developed and implemented more quickly, and making them available faster. The benefits of DevOps include higher customer satisfaction, better quality, faster delivery and lower costs.
This course is aimed at providing you with essential knowledge of DevOps and expanding your DevOps vocabulary. You will gain insight into the principles and working methods of DevOps. You will also learn to motivate and guide others by sharing your knowledge and experiences and by applying what you have learned about DevOps.
The course will 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. This is shown by the dark inner line on the model.
