Agile and DevOps are two different software development methodologies having a similar goal – to build software faster with maximum efficiency.

Agile is an approach to software development for developing high-quality software frequently in an iterative manner.

DevOps is considered as a logical continuation of the Agile journey. DevOps represents a work culture to bridge a gap between development and operations teams to shorten the development time and build high-quality software.
