Introduction to DASA DevOps Certifications

DevOps is more than a methodology or standard. It’s a cultural and professional movement that promotes new management practices in order to expedite the design, development, and administration of software and services. DevOps encourages communication, collaboration, integration, and workflow automation between development teams and IT operations. The objective is to improve customer satisfaction of IT solutions by improving the quality of software and services, speeding up delivery, and improving the commitment of the teams.

DevOps Agile Skills Association (DASA) is an open community whose purpose is to promote knowledge about DevOps, support a global certification program, and be an advocate for the development of those performing agile DevOps initiatives. DASA developed the first standard training and certification program in DevOps.

The DASA Competence Model identifies 8 knowledge areas that cover the entire life cycle of IT services and are relevant to the adoption of DevOps in an organization: business value optimization, business analysis, architecture and design, programming, continuous delivery, test specification, infrastructure engineering, and governance. DASA also includes four core competencies that are necessary to drive organizational change: courage, teambuilding, DevOps leadership, and continuous improvement.

Netmind is one of the driving members of the association (DASA Forerunner) and an official training center. We are accredited to deliver the following certification trainings.
