London, United Kingdom: PeopleCert, the global leader in exam and certification management and delivery, has announced the acquisition of DevOps Institute, a global learning community designed to empower IT professionals to make the most of DevOps.
DevOps Institute is a community of over 45,000 IT professionals, active in 160 countries and comprising a network of 150 authorised partners worldwide.
