Session: Leading DevOps Transformation
Prerequisites: Knowledge of software development and operations, agile and iterative approach
With the change in the pace of IT development, it is imperative for organizations to change the way software has been built over the years – they will have to revisit the very traditional way of constructing and delivering software to remain competitive in the market place. The organizations need to think fast and move fast to change.
As software development progresses from project-based delivery to the continuous iteration and evolution, it is crucial for organizations to streamline IT and look for synergies.
Reduced time to market, minimum downtime, lesser defects and a higher level of operational efficiency can be achieved by uniting development, operations and business teams.
DevOps brings business teams, developers and operations folks together, improving collaboration between teams and creating an automated continuous software development and deployment process.
