Innnovate or die – why a DevOps approach is essential for business success today!

The speed and the scope of business changes enabled by Cloud / Analytics / Mobile / Social is unprecedented in industry history: new business models are created while others are on the way to very quickly becoming obsolete.  Examples such as Uber, Airbnb, and Spotify are highlighting how traditional businesses can be disrupted by new entrants leveraging those technologies. This disruption is enabled by changing the way customers act and consume, it is removing intermediate roles by creating a direct link between the consumer and the producer (i.e. the developers). It puts the developers in the front office directly connected with their clients and makes developers ultimately responsible for the client experience. No industry will avoid going through such dramatic transformation, and more than ever innovation is becoming key to survival and development of existing businesses and is key for new born on the web start-ups.

  • “cloud native”: small teams developing cloud native applications – typically found in Born on the Web development organizations or in Innovation group/Line of Business of larger organizations,
  • “cloud enabled”: teams of teams evolving existing complex application to be cloud enabled, typically found in IT orgs of larger organizations.

Learning Outcome

Attendees will learn what a DevOps approach means to the business, the benefits of the approach and ways to get started on the transition.

    Real enterprise projects are not IT -- at least not only IT. In practice, the adoption of lean and agile principles have largely ignored the non-development aspects of software delivery, which are very real in large, regulated IT environments. In fact, it is critical that you consider how to bridge the chasm that exists between development and the "others". The Scaled Agile Framework® (SAFe®) is a proven framework for scaling lean and agile principles across an enterprise to manage software delivery for agile teams-of-teams. But what do you do if you have hybrid teams using a combination of processes? Can you apply SAFe even in more traditional organizations? And what about the “others”? Amy Silberbauer shares her experience driving her own SAFe transformation in IBM that involves the adoption of SAFe combined with a solution to manage both development and non-development work to deliver strategic projects. She discusses the key challenges and options to overcome those to apply SAFe in a true enterprise.

    Are you exploring SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework®) to help your complex software delivery team adopt lean and agile principles, but you’re not sure how to get started? If you’ve ever been a new parent, you know what it’s like to be overwhelmed with advice from experts of all sorts to help you through that life transformation. You’ve likely also realized there is no magic bullet – the best way to learn is to just do it, applying the advice when it works. Approach your SAFe transformation from the same perspective. Invest in training to ensure your organization is ready. Explore tooling to enable the adoption of the process. Listen to advice from experts who have actually tried this, and perhaps failed and tried again. Amy Silberbauer shares her experience driving SAFe transformations in large enterprises, including her own, to help you get started with your SAFe adoption. She specifically discusses the key challenges she has experienced and observed, and how they were overcome. Through an exploration of specific case studies and real life examples, you will get practical advice that you can apply to get started.

    As organizations move toward Agile development and DevOps practices for continuous delivery, highly automated integration testing is a necessity.

    Without a shift left test approach—early and often—developers and testers find it difficult or impossible to find defects until system parts are integrated together in system test. In addition, test automation is critical to keeping up with needed regression testing.

    With the right practices and automation tools in place, you’ll be able to refresh test environments quicker, reproduce defects more easily, find critical problems earlier, and run needed regression tests every iteration.
