    • DevOps Tools in a Continuous Delivery Pipeline DevOps Tools in a Continuous Delivery Pipeline Chris Riley, DevOps Analyst Recorded: Dec 10 2015 9:15 pm UTC 40 mins
    • 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.

      Attend this informative TechByte sponsored by Sumo Logic and presented by Slashdot Media to learn what is takes to make adoption of a DevOps strategy a success, and avoid the “DevOps didn’t work for us” lament.
      Attendees will learn:

      · How to gain visibility into your entire development pipeline
      · Methods for supporting faster release
      · What tools matter – and how to utilize them
      · The role of monitoring and how to achieve ‘single pane of glass’ views
      · Why legacy waterfall development can’t meet changing demands

      Don’t hesitate – register now for this timely event and learn how to increase agility of your development and operations teams.

      - What questions should a monitoring tool be able to answer ?
      - Monitoring, alerting and visualization tools
      - What to do with all these insights

How have the most successful organizations invested in the DevOps approach? How do organizations measure the effectiveness of DevOps in the enterprise?

      In this webinar, Louis Evans from Delphix and Ian Michiels from Gleanster discuss key insights from a newly conducted survey performed by Gleanster Research of over 2,000 DevOps practitioners from around the world. This survey was unique in that instead of outlining a subjective vision for DevOps, the industry leaders and the trend-setters were asked to tell us what works and what doesn't. Louis and Ian go deep and explore the challenges, best practices, and success metrics that were uncovered.

    • Abstract:
      DevOps isn't a tool or a product. It's an operational approach that changes how organizations think about developing and deploying applications. The ultimate goal? Creating better customer experiences.
      By uniting development and operations teams to automate and standardize such efforts as infrastructure deployment, you get faster innovation, accelerated time to market, improved deployment quality, better operational efficiency, and more time to focus on your core business goals.

      Join us in a webinar where you’ll be introduced to the Rackspace approach to DevOps where we automate entire application environments by treating infrastructure as code. Through configuration management tools such as Chef and Windows PowerShell® Desired State Configuration (DSC), we automate the deployment and scaling of complex application environments.
