DevOps practices are designed to unify software development and software operations. Through multidisciplinary teams, the DevOps movement enables automation, quick integration, testing, and improved deployment frequency. DevOps practices also lead to a lower failure rate of new releases, shorter lead times between fixes, and faster recovery times.
