DevOps (a clipped compound of "software DEVelopment" and "information technology OPerationS") is a term used to refer to a set of practices that emphasize the collaboration and communication of both software developers and information technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes. It aims at establishing a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably.

We love to automate almost anything.

Let's not forget to involve Security.

Security is normally a team that works in a silo or something that is bolted on after the fact. We like to include Security into the DevOps process.
