Putting the “Ops” into “DevOps”
Robert Stroud, Principal Analyst, FORRESTER®
Thursday, April 7, 2016 2:00PM to 3:00PM EDT
Please join the DevOps / Agile CoI for a BrightTalk Session, “Putting the “Ops” into “DevOps”, scheduled for 2PM EDT on Thursday, April 7, 2016.
DevOps is the blending of tasks performed by a company's application development and systems operations teams in order to deliver on the IT promise of agility and elasticity to meet business demands. Unfortunately, to date, this has been more about accelerating “Dev” and less about the “Ops”. Agility and velocity does not mean the abandonment of good practices, rather mandates the transition of the ops role from one of managing physical infrastructure, to managing their infrastructure as code. To do so effectively, operations will build infrastructure as code, similar to the Dev community and leverage automation tools to facilitate transition to production using modern automation tools.
Robert Stroud of Forrester who focused on the SDDC and IaC will discuss the impact of DevOps on your existing Change and Configuration management process and how you can leverage IaC and DevOps for agility and elasticity.
