Is Terraform a DevOps tool?

Terraform uses Infrastructure as Code which is an incredibly important element in a DevOps world. Its declarative approach to configuration enables DevOps to use HCL to describe the wanted “end-state” cloud or on-premises infrastructure. As an open-source software tool that supports all major cloud providers and allows for DevOps engineers to provision infrastructure amongst them, Terraform has demonstrated its practicality as a tool in the DevOps field.

Other DevOps tools include:
