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 >
Quality and efficiency rule the day. Forsgren will detail how ongoing advancement of DevOps and Continuous Delivery practices has redefined culture and reinvented workflow – while providing some of the specific formulas and metrics useful to quantify related costs and measure resulting ROI.Read more >
DevOps best practices are evolving rapidly, allowing organizations to build, test and deploy applications at a faster pace, and higher quality, than ever before. At the same time, honing the complex skills required to embrace DevOps on a wide scale is no easy feat in even the most forgiving environments, let alone the typical enterprise.
Alan Shimel interviews Aruna Ravichandran, co-author of the new book “DevOps for Digital Leaders”, about the cultural and technical strategies employed by today’s leading practitioners as they seek to “Reignite Business with a Modern DevOps-Enabled Software Factory”.
Learn more about:
o The current state of play as today’s enterprise organizations expand use of agile and DevOps methodologies across their entire applications lifecycle.
o Specific case studies highlighting those techniques that allow leading practitioners to further embrace and accelerate software delivery.
o Emerging DevOps ROI metrics that have proven extremely useful in enabling organizations to measure and increase their overall success.
Regardless of where you stand in your DevOps transformation today, you’re bound to benefit greatly from this detailed analysis of real-world adoption and use cases.
With their unique position at the centre of an organization, Architects can play a pivotal role to usher digital evolution and transformation in-line with business and IT objectives, including the adoption of Agile, DevOps and other disruptive paradigms.
Join Richard Sey, Head of Development Operations (DevOps), Siemens Energy Management, and Mark Daly, Client Architect, MuleSoft, on January 18 at 10am (GMT) for a live webinar as they look at the key role of the Architect in achieving the new IT Operating model. It will cover:
- A working example from Siemens Energy Management on how they have realised the new IT Operating Model from a business and Architect's perspective to drive operational efficiency, cutting development time by half
- A view of Enterprise Architecture and DevOps from a leader in the field
- What an organization needs to support delivery of the new IT Operating Model, including the creation of a Centre for Enablement (C4E), which has reduced dependency on Central IT in the Lines of Business at Siemens by 25%
Ok let’s be honest: DevOps borrowed many practices from other practices. TOC, Lean, ITSM, SIAM, Agile, Scrum, Kanban, Organisational Change Management (OCM) to name a few. Surely you cannot learn all of these and then figure out how to introduce DevOps as a new way to provide value to all technology investment and management?
How can you fast forward to being able to try DevOps ways of collaboration, communication, faster creation, better feedback and continuous improvement? How can you adopt and adapt the blend to your organisation?
This session discuss what is DevOps as a mix of practices. Then using the technique of Value Stream Mapping, sets the strategic tone to be able to help you discover the WHY, the HOW and the WHAT about DevOps for your organisation. 30-35 minutes of presentation followed by 10-15 minutes of your question by DevOps and leadership coach Daniel Breston.
Why do you want to introduce a new best practice to make the best use of technology? Yes in many cases IT is the 3rd largest budget line item, but are you getting the results you and your customers value from the investments being made?
Is DevOps hype or can DevOps truly deliver value?
Join James Finister, Global ITSM Strategist at Tata Consultancy and Daniel Breston, DevOps and AgileITSM coach, as they seek to answer the question: is DevOps hype or not? Take-away their experience on what is the value of technology and the value of movements like DevOps to you personally and to your organisation.

As a trusted partner for enterprises and ISVs, we are hosting a webinar to help businesses understand how TFS can unite people, processes and products to improve product delivery and accelerate productivity.
As automation lightens the load on IT operations personnel, and the DevOps cultural shift brings dev and ops together, some ops people are worried about their jobs.
Furthermore, as DevOps takes hold, other roles in the organization are set to transform. DevOps potentially reworks project management methodologies, so what about the project managers? DevOps flattens organizations, so should middle managers be worried?
In this webinar, industry analyst and president of Intellyx Jason Bloomberg will set the stage with some broad observations about the organizational impact DevOps is having across enterprises.
Next, Pauly Comtois, VP of DevOps at Hearst Business Media will join Jason for a thought-provoking, in-depth discussion of how DevOps impacts individual's roles within the organization, with some first-person stories of Hearst Business Media’s DevOps transformation.
You will learn:
- Potential starting points to mapping your own DevOps transformation
- What non-technical groups and roles need to be part of any DevOps initiative – and methods for effective inclusion
- New organizational approaches to structure and collaboration that empower instead of threaten
- How to better manage business changes with DevOps strategies
Is your team ready for continuous code delivery? In today’s “there’s an app for that” environment, business units demand new and competitive features as quickly as they can think of them. However, even though the adjectives used to describe DevOps – release, speed, automation – are all about moving forward, doing so without an idea of where you’ve been or where you’re heading leads to unsustainable development operations.

DevOps is the marriage between Agile, Lean and IT Service Management (ITSM). To begin your journey and be successful you need to adopt and adapt from all 3 movements.
DevOps is best defined as the capability to cooperate, collaborate, communicate and continuously improve how an organisation uses and benefits from technology to satisfy the goals of a customer or help them remove a problem.
In the webinar, we will discuss:
•What are these 3 movements?
•How are they different?
•How are they similar?
•How they get you to begin a DevOps journey?
•Tips on the journey of idea to realisation?
If you are thinking of how to benefit further from Agile, looking to remove the complexities of your ITSM processes or want to understand why lean is important to your success; listen to this interactive session.
One of the most important capabilities for companies to have is the ability to quickly adapt. Teams, developing not only software, should be ready to follow the wind of changes in the market.
Yet companies are faced with these questions: is our infrastructure ready for change? What is the cost of making needed changes? How do we adapt in a new environment?
In this talk Artem with show DevOps techniques that can help companies get ready to meet these challenges. He will use real life examples like fast deployments, continuous integration/delivery/automation, and “dockerization” of applications, lean development, systems orchestration, and behavior-driven development to demonstrate how companies can quickly adapt to market changes.
