'4 Dimensions of DevOps' is a webinar series demonstrating various aspects of DevOps implementation in a Digital era.
This Part 1 of the webinar series discusses a templated approach towards enabling end-to-end DevOps in a customer-driven marketplace. Any organization trying to introduce a change in their old-school processes and tools will adopt DevOps pipeline automation to enable faster and smoother software delivery.
In this webinar, we will help you explore tools and techniques to build a release plan that suits your needs. Key takeaways:
• Typical challenges in DevOps implementation processes and how to overcome them.
• Industry leading tools and techniques to achieve smooth releases.
• Rough estimate and ROI analysis for implementing an improved release planning.
• Release planning templates that can be readily applied for typical use cases.
As software practitioners, we often approach a new initiative by thinking about tools and technology first. But when faced with a major undertaking like DevOps transformation, that can become a problem. That’s because we don’t spend enough time thinking about the people implementing those tools, and how they will fundamentally affect processes and culture.
In this webinar, Brian Dawson, DevOps Evangelist at CloudBees and Ryan Yackel, Director of Product at QASymphony, will discuss the key elements of DevOps transformation and how QA teams can start getting into the mindset of the cultural and process shifts that DevOps brings — and why it’s important to do so before the conversation about tools and technology begins.

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
The Accelerate State of DevOps Report is the result of five years of research—with over 30,000 data points—to understand high performance in the context of software development, and the factors that predict it.

You’ve successfully dipped your toes into the DevOps ocean. You have a team or teams empowered to build, deploy and run their applications in the cloud with freedom and innovation. You have very likely hired a specialist DevOps Engineer, or two, to kickstart the process.
But where do you go from here? How are you able to take this model and empower the wider development teams across your organisation without creating an army of unruly development teams? How do you avoid each team marching to the beat of their own drums, each with a specialist DevOps Engineer and a wholly different approach to automation, governance and security?
This webinar aims to answer some of these fundamental questions, with practical advice on how to scale DevOps without being swept away.

About the Speaker:
Jason is a DevOps practitioner covering roles in Development, Build and Release Management to Continuous Delivery and DevOps consultancy across clients in different sectors and across the globe.
Modern release management teams pride themselves on setting up a seamless workflow for continuous integration and delivery. However, continuous testing – which is one of the most critical components of the workflow is often taken for granted or marginalized without clear ownership leading to impediments in quality. With the advent of DevOps and the movement to break down silos between developers and operations, it becomes critically important that all members of an IT team - regardless of what tools they use, or role they play - understand the essentials of continuous testing.Read more >
