DevOps is not just for start-ups. However, scaling DevOps in large enterprises requires shifting of culture, coordination of work across teams, reinvention of legacy applications and much more. Before you undertake any change to improve your software development processes, you would want to learn from the person who has gone before you and tasted success. Join the conversation with Gary Gruver on our next DevOps drive-in webcast. Gary shares his best practices and recommendations from his groundbreaking work at HP and Macy's and talk about how to lead a successful DevOps transformation.Read more >
Meeting the demands of everchanging IT management and security requirements means evolving both how you respond to and resolve incidents. It’s critical for organizations to adopt a scalable DevOps solution that integrates with their current monitoring systems to enable collaboration across development and operations teams, reducing the mean time to resolution.
PagerDuty works with AWS services like Amazon CloudWatch, to provide rapid incident response with rich, contextual details that allow you to analyze trends and monitor the performance of your applications and AWS environment.
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
Many organizations have started on their DevOps transformation journey today, but only 10% have fully embraced DevOps. Is it still so new that organizations are struggling to understand it? Change is hard, and the transformation to DevOps is hard. It flies in the face of the traditional silos: (1) applications departments for the majority of the larger enterprises were in place to support their business; today they are expected to be revenue-generating, and expected to be the main way to engage with their users, including customer support; and (2) there were a lot of teams, processes and infrastructure that were all set up to support the original models. Learn how to engage with your organization to move towards a more optimal DevOps model.Read more >

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 >
Join Alan Shimel Editor-in-chief of DevOps.com and Pete Chestna, Director of Development Engagement of CA Veracode as they engage in an interactive discussion on the current state of DevSecOps global skills based on findings from a recent survey conducted with DevOps professionals. Specifically they will discuss:
-Factors causing the scarcity of DevOps-related skills
-Benefits and drawbacks of various education models for IT and development teams
-Establishing effective security training for developers and operations to securely deliver software at DevOps speeds and fully embrace DevSecOps principles
Early on in the "cloud" Werner Vogals made his famous quote "You Build It, You Run It".
With Devops we learned that this became a mantra for shared responsibility between developers and operations. Operations learned how to process infrastructure as code and participate early in the supply chain of a service's life cycle. Developers learned that they had responsibilities to enable and in some cases operationalize their service.
Now there is a new movement to include and collaborate in a similar way with Security. This is all part of an "everything" shift left ideal. Developers and operations are taught the importance of including security in the stories and all parts of the delivery pipeline including security gates as well as code test gates.

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.
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.

- 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.
