Presentation: DevOps or Die
Speaker: Allen Ward, SPC5
To compete in a disruptive global market, every organization needs to deliver valuable technology solutions at the speed of business. This requires a shared DevOps mindset among all the people needed to define, build, test, deploy, and release software-driven systems—not just the engineers operating a CI/CD pipeline.
DevOps enables people across technical, non-technical, and leadership roles work together to optimize their value stream from end to end. It is critical to learn what DevOps is, why it is important to every role, and design a continuous delivery pipeline that is tailored to their business. To implement DevOps, cross-functional teams need to map their current state value stream from concept to cash, identify major bottlenecks to flow, and build an actionable implementation plan that will accelerate the benefits of DevOps in their organization. This invaluable discussion will walk you through the steps to do this.
