Network Operations is one of the more abstract ideas within the IT world. It’s possible that because it is new, and more abstract, that you haven’t heard of it, or don’t understand it.
Let’s demystify it a bit, shall we?
Network Operations, otherwise known as NetOps, is more than just a system to implement within a company. It’s an idea about integrating the systems we work with, the data we deal with, and the people who utilize these services. NetOps is a philosophy about how a company should work, and the process through which that ideal comes about. NetOps encompasses the activities and plans involved in communication network maintenance and use.
DevOps is defined by IT Pro as: ” a set of practices that combine software development and IT operations to shorten the development cycle when delivering features, fixes, and updates.” This varies from NetOps because the emphasis on networks within organizations is not present.
