About this talk

This free 1-hour webinar from Gigaom Research brings together leading minds in DevOps, featuring Gigaom principal analyst Jon Collins and Puppet's Nigel Kersten in a discussion about the practicalities of delivering on the benefits of DevOps. As increasing numbers of organizations look to DevOps as a way of delivering on their innovation and continuous delivery goals, they are confronted with many challenges — to the extent that they might conclude that DevOps isn’t for them. At the same time, decision makers looking to automate and simplify integration, test and deployment activities recognize that tools cannot be adopted in a vacuum. So, how can organizations take a pragmatic position on DevOps, and what lessons can they learn about delivering both efficiency and effectiveness, and above all, make things simpler with DevOps automation? In this webinar, we consider the options now available to simplify development and operations tasks. We look at the role and scope of model-driven management, for example where it needs to be supported by discrete activity. And overall, if DevOps is a journey, we consider lessons to be learned from those further down the path. This 1-hour webinar will give attendees insights into: What challenges are enterprises looking to address with DevOps today? How can decision makers determine if DevOps is valid for their environments? What automation options are available for those adopting DevOps practices? Why are organizations adopting best-of-breed DevOps automation approaches? How can decision makers navigate bureaucracy and demonstrate value? What is the role of management data and visualization for development decisions? Why are maturity models the wrong starting point for the DevOps journey? Are there other factors to consider such as organization, process?
