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 Architect and Global Leader - Application Modernization, Cognizant
Market shifts are fundamentally changing the way businesses approach software driven innovation. Enterprise capability for continuous software delivery enabling organizations to seize market opportunities and reduce time-to-customer feedback. DevOps is becoming a cultural movement to address interconnected, interdependent and instrumented need for digital reinvention. This session will address how every aspect of software delivery will be driven from the principles of validated learning leveraging process, methods and tools increasing the operational awareness of your software through rapid evolution. This session will also cover customer adoption success stories highlighting DevOps in action to address customer digital transformation agenda.- Biswajit Mohapatra, Global Integrated Delivery Leader - CIO Advisory, Cloud and Digital Modernization Services, IBM India
DevOps has now matured from being a mere buzzword to a real business differentiator across industries. While the forward looking Google's and Amazon's etc. have mastered the art, majority of large Enterprises are still struggling to implement DevOps and reap its promised benefits. In my experience consulting global clientele, I have observed that a "classic DevOps implementation" is multi-dimensional and a complex maze to crack. I am happy to take you through the journey and introduce you to the 'Devils' who convolute DevOps success. This talk is based on practical, real life experiences from the trenches.- Ravi Nalle, Solution Architect - DevOps, Zensar Technologies
The ever changing requirements and the shortening of lines between development and testing, DevOps is the solution to bridge the gap that has existed for years. What will constitute nirvana is the ability of teams to envision and execute methods that are decoupled from processes but married tightly to technology. Lean and clean mechanics of the future are dependent on these processes and success to a DevOps project is critically dependent on technology, process and innovation all working hand in hand.- Harshpal Gandhi, Director, Delivery Partner, Capgemini
Implementation of DevOps in large
scale programs can be very challenging. It is a mix of cultural and technical
transformation. In this session, we will explore below areas:
1. Key challenges while scaling DevOps in large programs, how to overcome them.
2. focus on strategy to build continuous delivery pipeline in large programs.
How to achieve Release on demand
Mirroring the rise of interest in infrastructure as code, there has been a considerable interest in defining builds and pipelines as code,concept allows you to define an entire application life cycle as code.
Pipeline as code for Continuous Delivery (CD) enables organizations to deliver new features to users as fast and efficiently as possible.
The core idea of Pipeline as Code is to create a repeatable, reliable and incrementally improving process for taking software from concept to customer.
The goal of Pipeline as code is to enable a constant flow of changes into production via an automated software production line.
The pipeline as code is what makes it all happen.- Dhiren Shah, DevOps enthusiast & Product Development Manager, Tieto
DevOps is mainly the widening of Agile’s principles to include systems and operations and collaborate together instead of stopping its concerns at code checkin.
However digital value chain doesn't stop at Ops or start at Development. This Talk focused on how people are moving beyond DevOps boundaries and including holistic perspective.
The talk also demystifies myths around DevOps as well.- ShriKant Vashishtha, Agile Consultant, Blogger and Speaker, Malonus
