Your digital knowledge. For the success of IT.

The separation between areas of specialisation is a thing of the past. DevOps has always been about one thing: the close interlocking of software development and IT operations. Its aim is to make software provision and thus operations more efficient. Companies that succeed in this can better adapt to new market requirements. It’s about agility and speed. And about achieving a lighter workload for the team. With your degree in DevOps and Cloud Computing, you will also ensure a better corporate culture.

You create, automate and administrate CI/CD pipelines. At the same time, you integrate the development infrastructure with the CI/CD pipeline and the IT operations.
