DevOps is a systematic methodology applied to a software project or program life cycle. It is a cross-functional approach that fosters greater collaboration between software development teams and IT operations to form a robust infrastructural backbone for a program or project.
DevOps is a dynamic approach that has the ability to overcome the challenges that occur across teams and functions involved in a project. It ensures optimum cohesion for greater client satisfaction. It is aligned with the latest market trends of Agile, Lean, digital transformation, cloud, big data etc. This makes DevOps highly desirable for organisations.
Hence organisations also expect their professionals involved in the project lifecycle to be up-to-date with at least the basics of DevOps. DevOps Foundation classroom training offered by KnowledgeHut helps professionals achieve that.
The training comes with a DevOps Foundation certification offered by the DevOps Institute (DOI), which brings enterprise-level DevOps training and certification to the IT market. This is the first level of the 3 DevOps Certification scheme, and more advanced levels include the Certified Agile Service Manager (CASM®) and the Certified Agile Process Owner (CAPO®).
There are no prerequisites to enrol for the course. However, there is an exam that you need to appear to obtain the certificate at the end of the training. Prior to that, you need to:
- Complete an accredited course
- Gain basic familiarity with IT and IT frameworks (Agile, Lean, ITSM)
Ensure you go through all exam prep materials and get proper guidance.
If you are a Project/Product manager or you are working on Enterprise Infrastructure, this certification course is essential for you. This is because you will be expected to understand the various DevOps tools and technologies and how to apply them in solving infrastructure issues. You can attend this course if you are dealing with either the business or technical aspect of a project whether you are an employee, manager, stakeholder or supplier contributing to your organization’s DevOps initiatives. Professionals who are guiding their clients through DevOps initiatives will also benefit greatly from the DevOps Foundation certification
Mode of delivery
The training is delivered in collaborative classrooms led by world-class instructors with industry exposure. The classes have time slot options, and you can choose one that is most suitable for you. Virtual online classrooms make it easy for busy professionals to attend the course.
