DevOps continues to mean many things to many people. Ask a hundred people what their definition of DevOps is, and you will get back a hundred and one different responses. More importantly, different stakeholders in an organization think of DevOps for different reasons. For some, DevOps is a way reduces costs. For others, DevOps is a solution for velocity. And for yet others, DevOps is a silver bullet to improve quality.
In the absence of a consistent definition and a common denominator objectives expectation, it is no wonder that more than half of all enterprise DevOps implementations fail. Most of implementations that are successful fail to realize the full spectrum of benefits from DevOps. Very rarely do enterprise DevOps implementations become catalysts of engineering transformation and organizational impact.
What then separates successful DevOps implementations from unsuccessful ones?
There is one foundational element that all successful DevOps implementations have in common. This ingredient is establishing and tracking well-defined DevOps metrics.
In this session, you will learn –
1. Why are DevOps metrics important?
2. How to define and measure key DevOps metrics
3. Using DevOps metrics to drive executive decisions, organizational change and engineering transformation
In addition, you will take back a personalized DevOps metrics strategy for yourself, your team and your organization.- Kapil Apshankar, Chief DevOps Architect, Global DevOps Practice Leader, Cognizant

I believe empowered, and enabled teams will become high performing teams. This sets the culture of the team, department and the company. Leaders need to bring in the right talents, setting right expectations to deliver value to the business, continuously. Team structure, with the right mix of responsibilities is the building block for high performing teams.
I will be sharing my experience of the different team structures I have worked with and what I believe is the best among them.- Balaji Kalyansundaram, Technology Leader. Agile and DevOps Evangelist, AstraZeneca
DevOps adoption will empower Business Groups and enable execution of continuous business changes into continuous deliveries. The organizational culture is the environment in which people, process and technology interact. With culture being fluid and is learned and shared, taking a programmatic approach and creating a DevOps mindset becomes a primary objective as part of a transformation initiative. A culture transformation framework can be a starting point to create a DevOps fit team.- Aparna , DevOps Practice Lead, TechStar Group
Microservices is an architecture pattern that has evolved with Devops as its backbone. This architecture produces smaller, but more numerous artifacts for deployments - 'microdeployments'. Devops is the piece that bridges the gap between microservices and deployments.
This talk will discuss the technology approach, the practices and the lessons learnt in our journey to build effective micro services. We will discuss the need for having a continuous delivery practice in place before starting to develop microservices. We will discuss an antipattern around building micro services but sticking to traditional monolithic deployments and ways to combat it.- Srimathi Harinarayanan, Solution Consultant, Sahaj Software Solutions
