Many organizations are adopting Agile and DevOps, which is great. But there’s still a lot of confusion about them. 

Are DevOps and Agile the same?

Some people argue that they are the same. While others over-simplify further and assume that Agile is all about processes like Kanban and Scrum and DevOps is all about practices like test automation, infrastructure automation, CI, and CD.
