Technical debt is the increased operational costs/risks over time due to the technical decisions organizations have made to achieve immediacy, simplicity, or meet budget constraints. Enterprises spend 41% of their IT budget on tech debt, while small businesses spend 27%. IT teams nowadays are increasingly expected to meet critical speed-to-market requirements. As a result, they sometimes have to forgo development work like writing clean code or concise documentation or building clean data sources. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that DevOps might produce its characteristic forms of tech debt. However, DevOps itself works as a solution to resolve the tech debt.
