Certified DevOps Professional

DevOps has crossed the chasm, and many organizations across different industries have adopted DevOps in one form or the other as a panacea to digital transformation. As per the Accelerate State of DevOps 2019 report, high performing companies who are successful in software delivery and operational performance “start with the foundations and then adopt a continuous improvement mindset by identifying unique constraints (or a set of constraints). Once these constraints no longer hold them back, repeat the process”.
