Understand the role of infrastructure as code in DevOps

Article | February 28, 2020

Infrastructure as code plays a prominent role in enterprise DevOps shops. Use this chapter excerpt to understand why -- and to learn the basics of some common IaC tools. As technology evolves at a faster and faster pace, collaboration between teams, such as development and IT operations, becomes increasingly important to satisfy end user and business demands. DevOps aims to foster that collaboration, as well as improve application deployment times and quality. To succeed with DevOps, however, IT teams must be open to change. "DevOps is a culture different from traditional corporate cultures and requires a change in mindset, processes, and tools," writes Mikael Krief in the book Learning DevOps: The complete guide to accelerate collaboration with Jenkins, Kubernetes, Terraform and Azure DevOps.
