Many software and IT Ops teams have adopted DevOps practices into their work cultures to help them evolve into a faster, agile (pun intended) and more innovative version of their former selves.

Companies which haven’t yet adopted DevOps feel the pressure to do so as a result of competition. Pursuing advancement can be uncomfortable because it calls for teams to move out of their comfort zones. Progress comes with challenges at first, but pays off when you stay the course.

Companies face challenges such as overcoming the Development versus Operations mentality; moving from legacy infrastructure to microservices, too much focus on tools, resistance to change, and Development and Operations toolset clashes when they seek to adopt DevOps.
