Do you often find that when something fails in production, the response of a development team member is, “It works on my machine or at our end, you must be having the wrong version“?

If so, does that mean we are just developing software not a working system ? Are we just working in Silos ? DevOps aims at breaking the Silos and bringing in a culture of everyone “getting along”. Presenter Priya Patra disucsses how and why DevOps is the force behind the evolution where the development team and operations works together with business sponsors and quality assurance (QA) to deliver software that can be released to production at any point of time.
