DevOps, Chapter 2

What do you do after you’ve started adopting DevOps principles? Teams have been embracing DevOps principles to the point that they've become widespread, and now organizations are questioning how they optimize DevOps to realize the value of their investment in this change of culture. An optimized DevOps approach to software delivery is critical as businesses are moving to a new stage of innovation. They are no longer just experimenting with emerging technologies like artificial intelligence—they are embedding them in their business. They are using a mix of container platforms and multi-cloud environments to manage all of their critical data and applications. They want to work with more partners and need to be able to depend on the fast delivery of reliable software. They want to track value across their delivery pipeline and optimize their investment in the automation of delivery and quality. They're ready to move on to the next chapter. James Hunter will explain how successful realization of the value of DevOps emerges from three primary axes: orchestration, quality, and optimization. Come discuss how the core components of DevOps support these axes through the practices of continuous integration and delivery, continuous testing, and value stream management.
