DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles.
