DASA DevOps Professional – Specify and Verify™

SD720 | 2 days |

The DASA DevOps Professional – Specify and Verify certification extends traditional analysis, test, or architecture training courses through its combination and relation with each other, and puts them in a DevOps context.

Overview

Specification and Verification constitute the activities performed by a DevOps team that determine and communicate what is valuable within a product, both functionally and non-functionally, from the customers’ perspective and ensuring the delivery of the desired value. Being end-to-end responsible with the whole team to deliver value makes these activities an essential skill set of a DevOps Professional.

The certification provides overarching guidance for any IT organization undergoing transformation, with links to multiple other DASA guidance products, supporting the organization and individuals in building capabilities.
