We break it down into 4 very easy steps to see what happens in the DevOps process:

1.       Plan

It all starts with an idea. Working together using this idea to build a scope and identify the criteria and dependencies and find out what technologies can be used to turn ideas into features.

2.       Develop and Test

Once the iteration starts, developers turn great ideas into features ​and begin to test the application to understand how the app works.

3.       Release

When all tests pass, the build is deployed to testing environments for each stage in the release process.

4.       Monitor and Learn

Learn and understand how users use your app, how it reacts and quickly fix issues and bugs
