DevOps and Responsive Organizations#

Responsive Organizations employ Agile techniques and use Continuous Improvement/Continuous Development tools to meld application development, testing, refreshes and quality assurance into an integrated framework

Most of those Responsive Organizations also have simultaneously discovered the power of Containerization methods such as Docker. A Docker container consists of a complete file system that contains everything, including the code, runtime, system tools and system libraries, which an application needs to run.

These capabilities not only makes it easier to package application code to make it more portable, but it also enables Information Technology organizations to adopt a microservices approach to Information Technology that makes applications more robust and flexible.

Advanced Responsive Organizations may also use Functions as a Service

DevOps and semantic-release #

semantic-release is a Node.js based software Software library that perhaps best exemplifies the DevOps concept.
