Traditional practices and barriers are breaking down, and DevOps tools and practices may be the answer to some of IT's new challenges.

DevOps tools help ensure consistent, repeatable outcomes for IT systems through configuration management, automated testing and other techniques. For example, keeping a handle on virtual data centers or adding control to cloud services can be achieved with DevOps tools.

IT admins will likely need some knowledge of DevOps, whether it's rudimentary or it becomes a primary goal of their job. See how much you know -- and need to know -- about DevOps.
