DesOps – ( Design Operations )

What is DesOps (aka. DesignOps) ?

DesOps (aka. DesignOps ) is traditionally considered as an approach to design inspired by the culture of DevOps. However the meaningful definition of DesOps or Design Operations involves the following equation:

Designing of Design Culture and Communications + Work practices + EcoSystem of Tools & Technologies

DesOps is about defining a culture of design through improved work practices and communication among the design teams with the inter-cum-intra project/product teams and stakeholders and aiding these practices with the help of technology to bring communications among the involved tools and the arching eco-systems. DesOps compliments DevOps in the concepts of cultural shift, collaboration and automation to make a full-circle in product lifecycle. To explore more about DesOps you can start from this article:
