The main idea of the event is to show you, that high-performing organizations continuously improve themselves. It is due to their determination and courage to work on their organizational culture, processes, leadership, automation and metrics, that they become companies who can react faster to the changing business surrounding. IT quits being a cost inside a company and becomes a source of competitive advantage on the market. During DevOps Knowledge Way we would like to guide you that way and inspire you with examples from the experience of practitioners.
DevOps, the latest hot topic in the IT world, promises faster, more frequent, higher quality software
releases. However, according to Paul and his research, many initiatives fail!
In this session, Paul reveals why these initiatives fail and will offer guidance for helping you prevent
these from happening. The reasons are taken from his organization’s global findings based on research
with more than 400 teams! Paul highlights that DevOps is not something you can ‘implement’ or ‘install’.
So how can you ensure that your DevOps initiatives will succeed? In this presentation, Paul will reveal 3
top critical success factors taken from organizations who are delivering significant, sustainable value
from their DevOps investments. Attend this session to learn why DevOps has become an ‘imperative’ for
survival for many organizations to support and enable their Digital Transformation. For many CEO’s
‘failure is NOT an option’!
Your CEO expects you to come back and make DevOps succeed! Show less
For the last year I have had a chance to observe different organisations trying to approach DevOps transformation. I met with their leaders (including CIOs) and worked with them on possible ways to approach the change. I am myself also responsible for building a high-performing engineering organisation whose vision is to be at least as fast as business needs it. Show more I started to observe patterns among leaders I encountered and me as well regardless of company type (eg. financial, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, service) and its size. Those patterns become immediately visible when people discover that DevOps is equally about certain organisation structure, culture, agile and lean processes, metrics as it is about technology and automation. What are those patterns? I will tell you during my talk but for sure they give subjectively justifiable excuses why examples of companies which succeeded in DevOps will not work in your company (“But you don’t understand, our context is special…“). But, being a leader is not about finding excuses. What I would like to achieve is that people who identify some of those excuses at themselves will jump directly into the solution mode. By doing so, they will save themselves a lot of time. Show less
Speech by the representative of DevOps Agile Skills Association (DASA)
A Full-Stack Engineer or a DevOps Leader would tell you about advantages of certain tools, process
implementations or operational benefits of automated provisioning and CI/CD. A CIO and a VP would summarise
profits in terms of time-to-market and deployment frequency. But how does DevOps look between those two
How does transformation influence the battlefield of IT - what conflicts arise? How does motivation of people change and how does it affect recruitment abilities and flow of talents between IT units? How does budgeting and controlling change? What about security? How does DevOps influence knowledge sharing within an organisation? How to bridge the gap between DevOps “hawks” and operational and development “pigeons”? What should be communicated to the Board to draw their attention?
Speaker is a hands-on IT manager in big financial organisations. He would like to share his ups and downs in a “DevOps journey” from the perspective of a Senior IT Manager (CTO or Department Director). His opinions are subjective observations and do not necessarily align with observations of other people engaged in the examples or official statements of organisations. Show less
Your organization wants to transform into a DevOps organization or is in the middle of that
transformation. By going through the initial steps of that transformation and providing help with examples
from the field I hope to inspire the audience to find the specific solutions for their organization. How
can we as managers, CXO’s or team members help organizations make the DevOps cultural shift? How do you
ensure that teams feel the freedom, support and urgency to change? Show
After taking steps to support the cultural change, we still need guidelines. Because of my background as a process and contract manager, I know the importance of processes and adherence to rules and regulations. Even in a fully automated DevOps environment there are rules and processes. How do you combine ITIL processes with DevOps? Self-managing teams are a great idea but what if they neglect their duties towards the organization? Even if your DevOps transformation is fully underway, you can still run into unexpected setbacks. For instance: How do you handle cultural resistance? By sharing cases I hope to support the DevOps community in creating their own journeys. Show less
DevOps. The latest hot topic in the IT world. Promising faster, more frequent, higher quality software releases. However many initiatives struggle to succeed. Often there is confusion about what DevOps is. Isn’t it just another word for Agile? Isn’t it all about tooling and Continuous Deployment pipelines? Isn’t it about collaboration? One thing It will require more than simply sending staff through DevOps certification and investing in the latest automation tools. Show more It represents a significant cultural and behavioral change throughout the whole end-to-end value chain, from business to development to operations. So how can you help bridge the gap between Dev and Ops? And between the Business & IT? How can you get them all to understand what it means to them and ensure commitment? The Phoenix Project business simulation is a dynamic, highly interactive workshop which can be played with people from the end-to-end value stream or with ‘DevOps teams’. In this session we will explore challenges YOU recognize, reveal how DevOps principles and practices can help and capture concrete actions to take away! The business simulation game is based upon the highly successful ‘Phoenix Project book’ which was partly the catalyst for the world wide interest in DevOps. In the simulation delegates play the roles of the ‘Parts Unlimited’ organization. At the start of the game financial performance is poor, the share price is low and they are getting beaten by their competitors. Survival is at Stake! The business initiates an ambitious IT enabled transformation initiative – ‘The Phoenix project’ – however the current IT capabilities present a significant business risk. Show less
