DevOps has evolved as a cross-functional, collaborative, and lifecycle- focused activity that spans the entire application lifecycle, rather than a point in time bridge between development and operations teams. This paper highlights the latest findings from EMA Research (Enterprise Management Associates), who has been researching this emergence of cross functional support and DevOps teams for several years. It elaborates on the key stages of this lifecycle approach to DevOps along with the stakeholders and transition responsibilities involved in each stage.
