Benefits of DevOps

While there are plenty of IT service management (ITSM) frameworks out there, very few of them deal with the human element of corporate IT. ‘DevOps’, as the name suggests, focuses on the relationship between professionals and teams working in development and operations for essential products and services. It aims to boost the effectiveness and efficiency of collaboration between these groups, increasing communication and integration using a focus on management, rather than introducing new technology or jarring new practices.

As a result of using DevOps, companies can create offerings built on the collective knowledge and experience of employees with different backgrounds and skill sets. With efficient DevOps-powered collaboration, organisations can release new products and services faster than their competitors, while also addressing issues and releasing updates much more swiftly. With an emphasis on automation, DevOps can also help users to enjoy huge savings on essential processes.

Whether you are looking to further your own IT career or develop your organisation’s internal talent, DevOps can be the perfect option for combining your IT teams into a single well-oiled machine.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
