DevOps takes tools and few are more important than the ones that let your development and operations teams collaborate. Whether your team is concentrated in one building or spread around the globe, it needs to be able to communicate effectively, share work, and keep up with schedules and tasks.

IT professionals have to collaborate -- a lot -- in their daily work. When you try to bring development and operations together, the collaboration complexity can go up exponentially. Fortunately, there have never been more tools available for teams to use or more aspects of collaboration covered by those tools. If anything, the danger to managers is suffering from too many options.

We're going to look at 10 tools that, individually, are used by a lot of the teams implementing DevOps in their organizations. These are notable, and some are new, but they are far from the only tools available.

We're staying away from the word "best." The reason there are so many tools is that there are so many ways of working together. It's almost certain that a "best" tool exists for your team.

It's just as certain that you'll have to figure out which tool is best based on your team, your culture, and your functions.

We'd love to hear about the tools that you and your team are using. Do you do everything with one tool, or do you have a complex suite of tools that makes everything work? If you're using a suite, is it all from a single vendor, or do you mix and match for best performance?
