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?

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

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.

DevOps teams are challenged with monitoring, tracking and troubleshooting issues in a context where continuous integration servers and DevOps tools emit their own logging data. Machine data can come from numerous sources, and CD tools may not agree on a common method. Once log data has been acquired, assembling meaningful real-time metrics such as the condition of your host environment, the number of running containers, CPU usage, memory consumption and network performance can be challengingRead more >
