We know that DevOps principles and patterns have been pioneered by the “unicorns,” the likes of Google, Amazon, Facebook, Netflix, Twitter and so forth, doing tens, hundreds or even thousands of deployments per day, while preserving world-class availability, reliability and security. However, unique challenges exist when DevOps transformations are undertaken in large, complex organizations.
The unique challenges include legacy applications, lack of automated testing, tightly coupled architectures, operating in regulated industries, powerful change management approval boards, security and compliance requirements, low trust bureaucratic cultures, and so on.
However, large, complex organizations are successfully transforming using DevOps, such as GE, Macy’s, Ticketmaster/LiveNation, Barclay’s, Nordstorm, Target, Raytheon.
In this webinar, Damon Edwards, Gary Gruver, John Willis, and Gene Kim will share their experiences and lessons learned about the unique challenges and solutions of implementing DevOps in large, complex organizations. They will also include lessons learned from the DevOps Enterprise Summit 2014 and goals for the conference this year.
