Abstract/Description

Your company must become software-driven. Why? User experience is king, and software is a fundamental piece of the service that you offer. A big part of getting “good at software” is evolving your delivery approach. This transition is far from easy, especially if you’re at a company with entrenched processes and functional silos. In this talk, we’ll answer some key questions, including: Does DevOps matter to business performance? What values are non-negotiable when adopting DevOps? How can you break down organizational barriers and improve collaboration? Can you adopt DevOps without blowing up quality or security? What technology is critical when automating the path to production? How do new approaches like Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) and Platform Ops fit in? How do I overcome the inevitable objections within my company? We’ll discuss this and more, and you’ll walk away with a blueprint for introducing enterprise-scale DevOps into your organization.
