So, you’ve decided to weigh out the merits of making the jump to implementing DevOps. But wait… before you make that leap… have you really thought through what it will take to be successful? Yes… this question is for you, the one standing at the edge of a brave new world! In this session, we will define the IT Value Stream, explore the interaction and combination of people, process, and technology; and discuss practical considerations and pearls of wisdom you must weigh out and possibly take action on before you are ready to join the DevOps front lines.
DevOps is the culmination of many years of the Agile community iterating through and learning from the interaction and combination of people, process, and technology. It is drastically misunderstood, because it is more than just implementing a tool chain or making the move to “The Cloud.” It’s about truly embracing speed and value creation across a company’s entire value stream, while causing large-scale enterprise change that more times than not, isn’t anticipated or even acknowledged, and most certainly cannot be avoided. However, as a body of knowledge, how much have we actually learned about how to successfully implement DevOps when Gartner believes over 90% of companies attempting DevOps today will fail by 2018? Come attend this session to learn how to become part of the elite 10% that succeeds at transforming their organizations by knowing in advance how to handle the major pitfalls and address the considerations required to implement DevOps.
Learning Outcomes:
  • Identify the components that make up the IT Value Stream
  • Understand the importance of proactively addressing the interaction between people, process, and technology
  • List the benefits of developing an incremental transformation strategy and roadmap, as well as metrics to gauge progress
  • Describe the automation components required to build the DevOps machine
  • Recognize the importance of taking a holistic transformation approach by understanding the key drivers and obstacles that must be overcome to succeed with DevOps
