DASA is expected to release the DASA DevOps Coach certification in 2019

Recent developments in IT methodologies have given rise to a spate of concepts, such as Agile, Scrum, DevOps, and Lean IT. These methodologies enable the realization of the customer value more rapidly than traditional methods.

Like all other hyper growth trends in our IT industry, adoption of DevOps is also not immune to potential misunderstandings and misconceptions. Besides the relevant tooling and technology component, DevOps predominantly entails a cultural shift towards a new mindset, behaviors, a new organization, and a new way of working. Organizations which do not truly comprehend the essence of DevOps end up with transformational failures, often leading away from the value of DevOps.
