Enterprise DevOps Is Not an Oxymoron

Add to calendar

Driving enterprise DevOps transformations is a challenging but massively rewarding job. Larger organizations often struggle to justify the costs of new tooling and training. In fact, larger organizations often fail even to understand what DevOps is and what it means for their business. Putting DevOps into practice also tends to hit serious roadblocks in areas of information security. How can you get buy-in for such a difficult and widespread organizational change? And once you've got it, how do you drive change in a way that stakeholders will stay supportive of it? Join Lee Eason as he discusses how he has led his company through a three-year transformation from traditional siloed development and deployment into a streamlined DevOps approach. This has reduced delays, dramatically sped up innovation, and improved quality and customer satisfaction all along the way. Learn what worked, what didn’t, and Lee’s formula for success in large-scale DevOps transformations. You'll take home practices ideas you can use to transform your own organization.
