Title:
Building a better product with data analytics and the cloud
Stream:
DevOps (3)
Speakers:
Kevin Smith
Abstract:
As we move from traditional waterfall development through agile and onto continuous delivery the approach we adopt to build and test our products needs to evolve.
No longer can we rely on a long stabilisation phase at the end of a release. Quality now needs to be assured at every stage of the release with every code change.

This talk has two aims. Firstly to take you through a number of the innovations being made in the delivery of Liberty to give you an insight into how we
drive quality throughout the release. Secondly, to inspire ideas on how you can apply data analytics and the cloud to drive your own build and test environments.

Key innovations covered will include our delivery lifecycle as well as our dynamic scalable build environment (based upon Smart Cloud Orchestrator and uDeploy).
Finally we will cover our use of big data analytics to automatically identify potential regressions any optimise our build and test environment.
