This report presents the results of the UNIFY Service Provider DevOps activities. First, we present the final definition and assessment of the concept. SP-DevOps is realized by a combination of various functional components facilitating integrated service verification, efficient and programmable observability, and automated troubleshooting processes. Our assessment shows that SP-DevOps can help providers to reach a medium level of DevOps maturity and allows significant reduction in OPEX.

The set of tools proposed supports ops and devs across all stages, with a focus on the deployment, operation and debugging phases, and allows to activate automated processes for operating NFV environments. Finally, we present use-cases and our demonstrators for selected process implementions, which allowed the functional validation of SP-DevOps.
