The DASA DevOps Certification Scheme

The role of the IT professional will become more generic as DevOps teams develop and IT people become more multi-skilled. 

DASA identifies three broad areas of expertise, and developed a certification program designed for each profile. These programs test the practical skills and experience of professionals who feel most related to these profiles.

DASA has provided a strategic and long term point of view on how to bring people, processes, and technology together for a large scale change.
