Using DevOps to Drive the Agile ALM

Many organizations struggle to implement sustainable processes to drive their software and systems development work. This leaves their technology managers and teams to use whatever worked for them on the last project, often resulting in a lack of integration and poor communication and collaboration across the organization. Based on his new book Agile Application Lifecycle Management: Using DevOps to Drive Process Improvement, Bob Aiello explores how to use DevOps principles and practices to drive the entire application lifecycle management process including establishing agile development practices such as continuous integration and delivery that integrates directly with the operations IT controls. Defining and automating the application lifecycle requires that you include all stakeholders and integrate their processes to achieve success. Learn how to use DevOps approaches to iteratively define a pragmatic and real-world ALM framework that will evolve, scale, and help your organization achieve its software and business goals.
