    Abstract

    DevOps is a relatively new domain addressing the challenge of how to deploy service updates quickly and frequently, without undermining the reliability and stability of the operating environment. This paper explores the origins and composition of a DevOps IT capability. Our motivation is to understand what DevOps is, and the benefits and challenges that developing a DevOps capability presents. DevOps encompasses key elements of processes, technology, and people. These same inter-related elements are reflected in the composition of a capability. The authors therefore consider DevOps through the lens of an enterprise capability as an enabler of DevOps deployment.
