In a world where customer choices change at lightning speed, where quality is king and customer experience is a kingmaker, companies must look for solutions that are simple, comprehensive and speedy. Enter DevOps - a melding of philosophies, tools and practices that can amplify a company’s ability to deliver refined services, solutions and applications swiftly and seamlessly.

By leveraging a DevOps model, development and operations teams work in tandem, or are merged together, to work across the application lifecycle. This approach brings with it a multitude of benefits, including higher velocity (allowing companies to innovate and adapt to changes faster), rapid delivery of releases and fixing of bugs, reliability, scalability, security, and more.

In recognition of this, AWS and Nexus Venture Partners are hosting the AWS Nexus DevOps Innovation day on May 28, 2022.
