Solve Everyday IT Problems with DevOps

Add to calendar

Some believe that DevOps is only applicable to Internet-based companies with a desire to disrupt existing businesses. On the contrary, DevOps practices can dramatically reduce many everyday IT problems—defects, incidents, waste, bottlenecks, downtime, and infrastructure fragility. Sherry Chang dives into these problem areas and outlines the DevOps tools, practices, culture, and other artifacts necessary to eradicate them. She shares practical tips and hard-learned lessons from Intel IT to arm you with the knowledge and tools you need for DevOps adoption. You and your IT operations partners can help your organization gain competitive advantages by simultaneously increasing quality, efficiency, and innovation velocity. With the ever increasing adoption of DevOps, potential risks exist for the disruption of traditional companies and organizations with outdated practices. Join Sherry to learn how to be the disruptor—rather than the disrupted—and explore the baby steps you need to take to start your DevOps adoption journey today.
