DevOps brings together the skills, processes, and tools together from both development and operations teams.

DevOps began around 2007.

IT operations and software development communities raised concerns about the traditional software development model. Although agile methodologies had been widely adopted by development teams (improving collaboration significantly), developers writing the code still often worked separately from the operations team. This resulted in inefficient processes and a general lack of collaboration between the two teams. 

'DevOps' bridges the gap between the two teams meaning they work cohesively - this took agile working a step further.
