The concept of DevOps and agility is nothing new for most companies and developers circling the sun. The most well known frameworks (e.g. Scrum, XP etc.) are applied in many development teams and lead to a number of benefits for teams, companies and customers. Evidence shows that agile methods cause better performances in comparison to the outdated waterfall method. For many companies the outdated waterfall method is the largest contributor to project failure. Another problem with traditional step-by-step programming is that products do not exactly meet the demand of customers and need to be redesigned which takes time and costs money. Through DevOps, development teams work closely with the customer and need to adjust fewer things at the end of the project.
