  • DevOps in a Cloud Native World Oct 27 2020 6:00 pm UTC 75 mins
    Valerie Henderson, VP of AWS Sales and Ginger Siedschlag, VP of Elastic Engineering at Rackspace Technology
    As organizations transform their approaches to a cloud native mindset, often overlooked are how their teams have to undergo transformations as well. By leveraging a combination of cloud native tools and best practices, companies are able to decrease costs, improve agility, become more efficient, and get to market quicker.

    Most companies recognize the benefits of agile methodologies, but DevOps takes things further. Many organizations that have attempted to move forward with DevOps have struggled just using the tools when confronted with existing legacy processes, not to mention trying to transform their team structures alongside that effort. As organizations venture into uncharted territory, leveraging a partner with a ‘do with’ approach to DevOps can provide on-the-ground guidance to help with their transformations.

    Join our webinar to learn best practices on adapting your teams to embrace a cloud native approach. No matter where you are in your cloud journey, learn how you can leverage the DevOps methodology to get to your cloud native state faster.

    What we’ll cover:
    - How to structure DevOps teams with core devs, centers of excellence and shared resources
    - Why refactor existing teams during DevOps and agile transformations
    - The six step path to operational excellence
    - How clashing team models and methodologies endangers velocity and ultimately your organization
    - How to accelerate your business by adopting a DevOps mindset and leveraging a CI/CD approach for automated deployments to enable efficiency and operational excellence
    - Tools and best practices to help you build, migrate, optimize, and maintain live AWS production environments
    - Customer use cases
