If there's one thing that everyone in the DevOps movement agrees on, it's that DevOps requires more than just deploying some new technology -- it requires a unique mindset. DevOps is all about applying the principles of agile development to IT operations. It requires developers and operations teams to work together closely, and it usually involves continuous delivery, cloud-based infrastructure and heavy reliance on automation.

If you aren't sure what the DevOps philosophy is all about, check out the DevOps section of InformationWeek along with a recently created DevOps guide. You might also want to check out DevOps.com or the book The Phoenix Project. Several vendors also have website pages that offer a good introduction to DevOps.
