Title:
DevOps: The Harmonious, Polygamous Marriage of Agile, Lean and ITSM
Stream:
Hybrid Cloud & DevOps (2)
Speakers:
Helen Beal
Abstract:
In this session Helen will explain why, in many respects, DevOps isn’t something new but the natural evolution and convergence of three key IT methodologies that all contribute to the goal of making better software, faster and more safely. Together they bring to life key DevOps concepts such as releasing on demand, shifting left, measuring ideation to realisation and failing smartly. Using case studies from projects she has worked on, Helen will show how embracing these principles and others, such as Agile Service Management contribute to changing cultures so that they are frictionless, innovation machines with their eye firmly on the customer’s needs along with sharing practical advice on how to drive change.
