DevOps Foundation

DevOps Foundation Certification

Description

Projects these days have to be synonymous with quality, Agility, scalability and flexibility.  Only a project that successfully combines continuous software delivery with fast fixes to problems in a stable operating environment, can achieve business benefits and client satisfaction. To ensure this, organizations are adopting DevOps—a systematic approach that relies on collaborative effort between operations, development, and QA, through the entire lifecycle of a project that leads to continuous improvement and Agility.

Given its numerous advantages, it is expected that project/product managers or those working on Enterprise Infrastructures, understand the various DevOps tools and technologies and their use in solving infrastructure issues.

KnowledgeHut’s course on DevOps Foundation Certification training will familiarize you with the A to Z of the DevOps framework while simultaneously giving you a solid practical base which will make you ready to apply its principles while on the job. You will also get Exam prep help and support till the time of certification. Successful application of DevOps will help you gain recognition by realizing the organization’s development and business goals.
