  • How to Build a DevOps Team that Really Makes a Difference
    How to Build a DevOps Team that Really Makes a Difference Panel Discussion Hosted by Computing Magazine Recorded: Jul 12 2017 50 mins
    The separation of the operations and development roles hinders communication, fosters resentment and undermines trust – all of which results in a slower software delivery across the business. This is why many organizations are now merging the roles, implementing DevOps in an attempt to free themselves of these shackles and speed up their software delivery cycles.

    DevOps has become the IT word of the moment in part because it just intuitively 'makes sense' to decision makers. After all, what's not to like about faster software delivery, higher quality, and a more cooperative work force?

    However, like many seemingly simple things, behind the scenes implementing DevOps can be anything but straightforward. Combining the two roles can cause serious disruption, and before embarking on DevOps just because everyone else is doing it, IT leaders need to keep a cool head, to take a step back and ask themselves "Why are we doing this? What's involved? Is it really for us?".

    Other questions will emerge when the decision to pursue DevOps has been taken: "How can we build a DevOps culture, emphasizing the win-win scenario when those involved fear change? What's the best place to start and how do I take people with me? What do I need to measure and what does success look like?"

    Later, decisions will need to be taken about the role of Agile, continuous delivery vs. continuous deployment, the extent of automation, traditional vs specialized toolsets, and the rest.

    DevOps is a significant development in the way that all types of companies operate - because companies in all sectors now develop their own software - but it is still new to most and so it is important to start the journey on the right path.

    Join our expert panelists for this on-demand web seminar during which we will be fielding your questions on how to build a DevOps team that will really make a difference to your company.
  • How DevOps Practices & Orchestration Help You Drive Change with Confidence
    How DevOps Practices & Orchestration Help You Drive Change with Confidence Lawrence Hecht, Principal, Lawrence Hecht Consulting & Carl Calum, Technical Marketing Manager, Puppet Recorded: Jul 6 2017 61 mins
    From agile and DevOps to the cloud and containers, it feels like we’ve reached a tipping point of change in IT. Don’t be fooled, because continual change is simply the new normal.

    To thrive, IT teams must be able to rapidly deliver and operate modern software. That’s why teams are turning to DevOps practices like continuous delivery, lean management and automation to keep pace — and arming themselves with tools that give them the ability to constantly innovate.

    View our webinar to learn why automation is the foundation of
    any DevOps initiative, and lets you drive change with confidence.
    We discuss how to:

    • Configure, deploy and update your infrastructure and applications faster, and more reliably.
    • Gain full control, visibility and context from your core infrastructure to the applications that run on top of it.
    • Automate the infrastructure you have today, and help you bridge to the technologies of tomorrow.
  • Security Implications for a DevOps Transformation
    Security Implications for a DevOps Transformation Alan Shimel, Editor-In-Chief, DevOps.com & Greg Sarjeant, Manager of Professional Services, Puppet Recorded: Jun 29 2017 63 mins
    If your organization is undergoing a DevOps transformation, you’re probably thinking about where security fits in. All too often, we tack on security testing at the end of the delivery process, which means significant problems go undetected until development is complete. As we adopt DevOps principles and practices, we enable a natural solution to this problem: ensure that security experts are involved throughout the delivery process.

    In this webinar, DevOps.com and Puppet will define a reference implementation of DevOps from the ground up, by illustrating how the software delivery process evolves at a hypothetical startup. Once we've laid a technical foundation for DevOps, we will discuss the implications for security. We will discuss:

    •Benefits for and challenges to security during a DevOps transformation
    •How to craft a DevOps-ready security practice
    •Refinements of a standard DevOps workflow to address security needs
  • A Roadmap for DevOps Success
    A Roadmap for DevOps Success Michael Olson, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Puppet Recorded: Jun 21 2017 59 mins
    DevOps isn’t just for the “unicorn” companies out there like Google and Apple. DevOps practices are rapidly hitting the mainstream as more organizations realize the need to behave like software companies and improve how they work in order to deliver better value to customers. 

    If you’re sold on the value of DevOps but having trouble getting buy-in from your peers and managers, or if you’re not sure where to get started, this webinar is for you. Based on findings from the 2016 State of DevOps Report, we will share a roadmap for driving DevOps adoption within your organization. 

    We cover:

    •How to build the business case for DevOps
    •The cultural changes required
    •Ways to align incentives and teams to improve collaboration
    •Key technical practices of high-performing teams
    •Where to start
