Although stemming from the same lineage of cross-functional work, there’s a substantial difference between DevOps and WebOps methodologies. In this recent Forbes article, you’ll learn about key differences between these two practices, along with how web operations unites team members around creating a website that drives business goals forward. 

Many marketing and IT teams - while both responsible for driving results for their business website - often work in silos. Pantheon CTO and co-founder David Strauss credits WebOps with alleviating these pain points:.
