We have seen these words on the internet – often used interchangeably. Today, we are going to clear the air. ITops, Devops, Secops and Cloudops are all various segments of IT that together help an organization be in business.


ITops provides network infrastructure, computer operations and help desk and server and device management.

Network InfrastructureInfrastructure management, port management, remote access, monitoring network health and alerting in case of issues
Computer Operations and HelpdeskData centre management, help desk management, user provisioning, auditing, disaster recovery, backup management
Server and Device ManagementConfiguring and maintaining servers, email and file server configuration, PC provisioning, software licensing and management

ITops reviews and updates internal networking issues. In a nutshell, ITops ensures that the organization is supplied with the necessary IT resources to function.


Devops is an approach that encapsulates collaboration among the Development, Operations, Testing and Support teams of an organization, with the aim of speeding time to market through agile development. The approach consists of the various steps in a release (Development and Testing) – planning, coding, building release, testing for accuracy and the actual release. The Ops (Operations and Support) efforts roll in the form of deployment, operation and maintenance of the product.


In a Devops environment, it is easier for security measures to instilled in the product, right in the early stages of the development cycle. Secops links the security and operations teams together to work with shared accountability, processes and tools, such as automated penetration tests, to ensure that organizations do not have to sacrifice security to maintain a commitment to up time and performance.


Cloud technology is being swiftly adopted by organizations worldwide. The scalability and on-demand services it offers have proved to be extremely beneficial for businesses. But with the pros come the difficulties of managing the complex cloud setup. Traditional ITops are not well equipped to handle the dynamic nature and growing trend of cloud and are often unable to support the speed and flexibility that cloud requires.

Cloudops is overall focused on mission-critical applications running the business through the continuous operations of cloud. It focuses on the delivery of the cloud infrastructure to support self-service leveraged by Devops teams.

Effective Cloudops requires a cloud management platform that can consistently deploy software and configure changes according to corporate performance, governance and security policies across multi-cloud.
