DevOps is one of the key trends in software development which has emerged recently. Though it has covered lot of path, still the term is often not fully understood today. On one side, some organizations are still struggling to adopt DevOps whereas some software delivery organizations have reached a point where they are ready to view the concept of agility holistically. 

The session analyzes the areas that many organizations are overlooking while implementing DevOps. We look into the fact how the change in organization culture, collaborative practices and automation aligned with all different teams will establish a single mindset on improving customer experiences, and ensuring that innovation is balanced with security and operational needs.
- Amit Dasgupta, Director – Major Accounts Management and Partnerships, Kovair
CIO Function or Enterprise IT is struggling between two competing pressures 
1. Provide stable , secure, high performance services to end users or customers
2. Deliver agile , innovative and technology intensive services . 

The IT Organisation needs help to build these capabilities to seamless work in this multi speed mode.

What this means is that the organizations need to completely transform their existing legacy process, infrastructure systems and people’s behaviors to embrace the world of high velocity software deployment which is agile and stable. The existing software deployment cycle where the development and release happen once in six months should now happen in 2 weeks to deliver on demand Also the development and ongoing support of software product cannot be separated and future DevOps mechanism will be one seamless and continuous deployment.

Is the success due to the technology / process / methodology / tools (or) engaged people / skill within?

Is it about cognitive programming (or) continue to descale the organization?

Most of the projects fail under the guidance of leaders behaving badly. One of the main reasons for these failures is the ignorance of the information at different levels. The relation between the members of the project at each level accumulates to the total success or failure. The end-to-end execution of any given project involves lot of responsibility, integrity and the desire to succeed.

To avoid the human error, the importance of automation is evolving to every possible involvement of the business process. It is not just enough to change the “What” and “How” of doing the things, at the same time, also about “who” the stakeholders of the project


- DSK Chakravarthy, Sr Project Manager, ValueLabs
Out of all the process and technological transformations that the industry has gone through, “DevOps Transformation” has been extremely unique. With greatly increased delivery speed, quality and reliability DevOps has been the go to stop for many companies, yet it also has been the most misunderstood concept.

Every Devops transformation or implementation starts with following questions.
·         When are we hiring a new Devops team?
·         How are we planning to automate our delivery chain?
·         Is it going to make Ops team redundant?
·         Is Development team going to take responsibility of deployments as well?
 
Unfortunately, DevOps is not all about automating your delivery chain nor its about making your Ops team redundant.

DevOps is about creating a culture of collaboration and knowledge sharing that can help with adding value and improving flow efficiency from business case to technology solution. It puts more emphasis on optimizing handoffs between different organizational silos, reducing knowledge waste, process waste, waiting waste at various levels, focusing on common vision and continuous improvement.
 
If the above goals are not achieved, it matters little how perfectly your delivery chain is automated. There is a need in the industry to understand the core concepts of DevOps. This session is just not philosophy but provides relevant and real-time examples that audience can relate to on what exactly are different types of wastes in organization, what level of cultural change and of course finally automation that is required for organizations for successful DevOps Transformation. - Kiran Ravula, Certified Agile Coach & ICAgile Authorized Agile Trainer, Telstra

Business are demanding ever shorter release cycles for new applications.Traditionally ‘Operations’ is seen as a barrier with lengthy bureaucratic controls and delays in provisioning production systems. DevOps is a growing movement for shortening development and deployment and integrating Development and Operations. However this requires a mindset shift, new behaviors and a cultural shift in both Development and Operations. 

Traditionally suspicious of each other, they must now work closely together. Yet many companies are struggling to adopt and deploy DevOps and how to change the culture. 

Gamification - The Phoenix Project: The simulation game is based upon ‘The Phoenix Project’ Book. Parts Unlimited is in trouble. The only way forward to not only save the company but to make it competitive and profitable is “The Phoenix Project” which represents an IT enabled business transformation, with Retail Operations as the business owner of this project. The VP of IT Operations is asked to take the lead of the IT department and ensure that “The Phoenix Project” will be a success. But the VP of IT Operations is facing a tremendous amount of work. A huge backlogs of issues, features and projects. 

Your team will act in different roles within the Parts Unlimited organization. You can be Retail Operations, Human Resources or Finance –playing the Business roles of the company. Or you can be the VP of IT Operations or other members from his IT Team that needs to develop the applications and solve the IT Issues - Suresh GP, Founder & Managing Director, TaUB Solutions
