Version or source control is very different in DevOps compared with the software development life cycle (SDLC). The larger the project, the more important version control is. It is the key enabler of automation, collaboration and shared responsibility and it is a very important enabler of parallelism and agility. Instead of only versioning the traditional code, executables, requirements other project assets such as deployment scripts, configurations, environments etc. are also versioned. Different version control techniques such as branching, mainline etc. also enable decentralized code development.
